Thirty Years Ago

Well, despite threats of closure, Hank's Saloon, on Atlantic & Third, is still hanging in there.  Thank goodness for small victories.  I've no idea what its long-term future is, though. I've been spending a lot of time looking at the Municipal Archives recently, and searching through the 80s tax photos, I found this one of 46 3rd. Avenue.  I think the building was still the Doray Tavern then.

Here's Hanks last year. 

Marginally less decrepit, perhaps, but essentially the same.  I'll have to go back soon.  For earlier posts about the place, read here and here, & follow a link to a 1978 Doray scene.
