There was a time not so long ago when Inwood had a thriving bar scene.

Long looking for fuck pub on 29th Columbia

Up, down and between Dyckman Street and th, there were somemainly Irish, bars. I hope this post sparks more memories and generates more photographs from an Inwood bar scene of not so long ago. The Bars Reprinted with the permission of John F. The Jewish l went to school and studied; the Irish went to the bars. To be sure, many of us also went to school and played sports and went out with girls no sex, though.

But we went to the bars underage after games after dates after softball games before and after dances to watch the Sunday football game and for every other damn reason. Well, you get the idea. We knew the bartenders by name. We hung out there we talked we laughed we sang we sometimes fought …and we drank. Many slowed down as they grew up many stopped altogether and some were stopped only by the grave.

I can hold my liquor. Again, thank you to John F. McMullen for sharing his poem. If you have any photos you would like to share please let me know. I will be happy to add them to this post. The place was also jumping when the Islanders were winning their Stanley Cups in the beginning of the 80s.

Hockey seemed to be the Irish sport of choice. I see that there still is a paved hockey rink in Inwood Park by the Hudson, but it seems to be more used by Central and South Americans for volleyball at this point. Please feel free to share more.

I remember the Hedgehog in its final days. It was a real dive, surpassed only by the Lakes of Killarney. The mutt they harbored jumped my dog one day and I bounced a trash can off its back. The owner was a real scumbag. I came back later that night and shot out the neon lights on the with a pellet gun. My late godfather, a german guy, lived down on Arden Street. Oh to be young again in Inwood. On weekends, some of the locals from the bar would play stickball with the rubber Spauldine along Sherman Ave, right by the bar.

Hey, as a Jewish kid growing up in the neighborhood, i can attest that the aforementioned poem is accurate. A few bars that frequently get left off a list of long lost Inwood bars are Lakes of Killarney and Barones. Matt O, my grandmother lived above the Hedgehog for many years.

Does your friend Dave in Boston have a website or address? Would like to get in touch with him. Closed in past years. My late godfather, a little german guy, named Barney Bott, lived at 32 Arden Street…. I believe The Whale is now the Irish Brigade bar. The Brigade closed on Sunday January 3rd, Irish Eyes closed on Jun 29, Before it was the Whale it was the Park Gate. I was 16, you sat in booth, beer was. Great memories. We would drink in Inwood Hill Park, near handball courts.

It was cold, but who knew? It was on th, on a triangle, near Post Avenue. I go back a long way. Also, the Campus Inn on th and 10th, it had windows that opened to the street, great place after swimming at the Miramar Pool. Thank you again for the memories, must get the book. I grew up on th near Cooper. From 46 to Knew John Muldoon well. Lost contact through the years.

Does anyone know where he Is, or if he has passed? Is John Muldoon still around? He was one of my best friends growing up in Inwood. Lost contact over the decades. Does anyone know where he is? How about Green Acres? Broadway and th st I believe. I remember drinking cokes and having chips at the bar while my dad had his beer!

And the Inwood Lounge accross the street from Sams. And Chambers on Sherman and th street. And Barrones on Nagel and Dykman. They had great food in there. During the 50s and early 60s Inwood had more bars than any other neighborhood in NYC. Do you remember the Rheingold Girls?

Schaffer beer? Knickerbocker beer? Peals beer? And we also had the 52 lane bowling ally on Broadway and Nagel. Great place to drink. Needless to say the bartender who had been serving me for years was pissed. We also used to drink in the Hi Ho chinese restaurant on Dykman Street. Chambersdown near 10th Ave and Isham. While researching my heritage for the yrs Ive realized my Dad was Sam Chambers…my mom only gave me bits and pieces…he passed in the mid 90s I heard it was a cool place…wish i knew more…Im 48 now but found out through the old timers more than anything else from Dorney maleness…wierd feelings bee well.

Sam went to Iona where he knew my brother who taught Theology there. Sam worked the back bar in Cambers and used to open the back door for me when there was a line at the front door. Sam was a very nice man. Dan knew all of the Bronx and Manhattan bar trivia…worked for years as an insurance investigator and process server out of the Bronx courthouse. I wonder if that was the site of a bar a long time ago? I had bragged to my boyfriend, soon to be husband, Drew Nugent, about how beautiful Inwood was.

So one summer afternoon, Drew and I and a friend, took the subway up to Dykeman St. I showed them that view of the Hudson, that we all love so much, and we exited near th St. The bartender was singularly unimpressed. The friend thinks Shaemus was Long looking for fuck pub on 29th Columbia Tipperary or Galway. My friend from church grew up in Inwood.

He tells me that when he was a boy scount, in abouthe earned a merit badge by counting all the bars in Inwood. He counted them from th St. There were Only in Inwood could a boy scout earn a merit badge counting the bars. Kingsbridge in the Bronx…from th to th to nd Street as well. I remember getting trashed in Dirty Nellies in the 70s and some off-the-boaters were trying to get me to run some guns for them. I declined. No relation to the bar owners.

Thanks for the memories, l and lassies. I was a Good Shepherd kid and my dad drank in every bar in Inwood, after tending his own saloon all day—the Blue Bar of the Algonquin Hotel. My brother and I would sip Cokes and munch Bon Ton potato chips or a fistful of broken cashews from the vending machine. Good times! A reader sent that quote in. Inwood was a great place to grow up and I have so many great memories. This was a great trip down memory lane. I grew up in KIngsbridgeth-Bailey Avenue…my late step-father, who stopped drinking in the late s after his divorce, grew up on Kingsbridge Terrace next to the Keenan Family…Bill, Jim, and Tommy.

And the best softball team in inwood.
