Tonight, Neirs Tavern hosted a Queens history night featuring Jason D. Antos’s Queens: Then & Now, a fascinating powerpoint presentation with archival photos of Queens juxtaposed to the same perspectives today. To quote Antos, “it was an evening of incredible photos of local history, beer and yes…wings!” Antos chose a great historic location since, as Antos says:
Neirs is one of the oldest continuously used bars in New York City and has been in operation since 1834! It is a Woodhaven landmark best remembered for its setting in Goodfellas!
It was a truly enjoyable and informative evening. Thanks Jason for inviting me!
