If you want an old New York ale house, it's McSorley's. It's early, early New York, very old. It has a wooden floor—they may even have some sawdust on the floor. It hasn't been fancied up; it's a real drinking-man's pub. I go every few months and drop in for a pint. The ale is so fresh, it's really quite delicious.
