I guess many people go into a bar and come out on their ear.

I don't know why, I keep thinking that the 'e' in the window is part of 'love'. Just a hopeless romantic, I guess. Or lush.

Ken,
I like all the diversity in your photos. I've been thinking of you lately. You doing ok?

Carolyn said...

Has there really been a bar or tavern here since 1817? Or is this a laugh at we gullable souls?

Ken Mac said...

from the ear inn site.
You are in a designated Landmark of the City of New York, on the National Register of Historic Buildings of the U.S. Department of the Interior.

The house was built in 1817 for a certain James Brown. He is reputed to have been a black man and aide to George Washington during the Revolution. He is perhaps pictured in the Cass Gilbert painting of George Washington crossing the Delaware River. After the war, James Brown settled in New York and worked in the lucrative tobacco trade between the South and Europe. He was successful enough to move to the suburbs near the village of Greenwich, and build, a fashionable Federal townhouse. The site was only five feet from the original shoreline of the Hudson River.

«Louis» was going to post a smart remark until he read the interesting history you provided. ;-)

A bar where you can actually "ear" would be quite novel.
