An ale house establishedin 1854 by John McSorely, an immigrant from Country Tyrone. McSorley's in a City institution. A longtime favorite watering hole for writers, reporters and Tammany Pols, it made the headlines most recently in 1970 when, finally and not without protest - the original McSorley's maxim was "Gentlemen cannot drink in tranquility with ladies present" - it opened its doors to women. What is significant about McSorley's and the other Irish saloons it represents is that they used to double as information centers and hiring halls.

The historic research contained in this Open Green Map is from the book: "Six Heritage Tours of the Lower East Side" by Ruth Limmer, in collaboration with NYC's Lower East Side Tenement Museum.
