Photo by myself at 18th Street and 5th Avenue, in the Flatiron District.
Old Town is one of the few remaining old bars in New York. It is usually packed every night with business people in the early evenings, and kids in the wee hours.
As you can see of the bar, Old Town is not pretentious. You would never know it's located steps away from trendy restaurants and luxe furnishing stores.
Old Town has been known as a 'writer's bar'. Frank McCourt, Nick Hornby and Seamus Heaney used to come here. Some of their signed photographs are on the wall.

Apologies for the delay in posting. I had a devil of a time figuring out what photo to show today.
I'm writing from Los Angeles, which is beautiful and sunny as usual. Some photos from our stay here, coming soon!
