That one should go on the wall! Welcome to New York. The Bronx is up and the Battery's Down.
Wonderful photo, but sadly ironic that the one female sailor is obscured.
Isn’t there a Village People song about this?
Beautiful! Thank u for ur service and enjoy NY!
@7:31I don't recall a Village People song about McSorley's!
@Grieve: There should have been.I agree about the female sailor; maybe Jason can find one in his outtakes reel.
This is Jason. She actually wasn't a sailor, I'm thinking she was a date of one of the sailors. She was wearing a dress that the military wouldn't find acceptible for 'Dress Whites'. Not so sure she wasn't trying to hide in the photo actually. LOL
Welcome to NY!! 👍😉🍀
Letmec1 - Thank you for the clarification! I felt like a bit of a jerk for pointing it out, but the idea of a servicewoman being inadvertently overlooked stood out to me in an otherwise great visual experience. I'm an ancient, arts involved East Villager and as far from a military enthusiast as you can get, but my Dad served in the Navy in WWII, and the Navy meant a lot to him, and always touches a part of me. And given the non-navy status of the female in question, who I'm sure is a fine human being, she was "obstructed" justifiably, and rather expertly. I first got involved with the Grieve years ago, when I bitched about mobs of Crusties under my window. This is more fun.
Ironic about the woman who is hidden because McSorley's did not admit women until forced to in 1970. R.I.P. Barbara Shaum, East Village leather crafter, first woman to be served there.
Man, that first guy could be Val Kilmer's son.
You sure are allowed to have a lot of hair in the Navy! haha
