Chumley's Bar (the OLD DOOR) of New York, signed prints
One of the Great Good Places of New York, Chumley's bar at 86 Bedford Street in the Village served it up from 1922 to 2008, when a wall caved in during chimney maintenance. They've rebuilt on the site, and it's gorgeous, but this cool three-color print commemorates the old original door, reputed to be the genesis of the term "86" for outta here. As in, "Moose, that rummy's had too much to drink, show him the door. 86 that knucklehead!"
This art is featured in my book Bars, Taverns and Dives New Yorkers Love, available here.
