To do in NYC Today- Visit The Ear Inn

Every day, we post a one minute guide to one great thing happening today in New York City. We list doings that are inexpensive or completely free, social and 100% unique to New York. Designed for the curious local or savvy tourist, we aim to expose the eccentric and obvious all over NYC. Check back every morning to crack open a new nutshell

Take a trip to the historic Ear Inn

With a legitimate claim to possibly being New York City’s oldest bar, this historic tavern has a welcoming crowd and a unique feel. Crowded at happy hour, but cozy most other times, it’s a great local spot for conversation and drinks.  Also known as the Green Door Bar or the James Brown House. Ah, God bless drinking establishments with three names.

Legend has it the building, which has been everything from a brothel to a record company, was once home to General George Washington’s Aide De Camp way back in the late 18th century. But now you’ll only find a knowledge bar keep and new friends. Because it is located almost on the Hudson, it can be a little harder to find, but well worth the effort.
