New Yorkers love to celebrate their city and its rich history. The Old Town Bar at 45 East 18th Street, is hosting an impressive 100th anniversary party with champagne and a reading of a congratulatory letter from Mayor Bloomberg to celebrate......their urinals.
The porcelain commodes are stamped with the date November 1st 1910 and are of an impressive shoulder-height size. The Wall Street Journal spoke with the manager and co-owner of the bar Gerard Meagher, who is somewhat of a urinal aficionado. Other than Old Town's "majestic" urinals
There are some great urinals in New York," he said. "I know P.J. Clarke has some great ones. They're pretty majestic as well. And McSorley's has huge urinals. I've always noticed really big urinals.
The urinals are not the only part of Old Town that is an ode to old New York. Established in 1892, it is an impressive space with a 55-foot mahogany bar and 16-foot tin ceilings.
If you are one of the many who can appreciate a massive hundred-year-old urinal and all that it's experienced, the event is on Monday November 1st.
