The Subway Inn(Flickr: Otterman56).

Subway Inn, a New York staple since 1937, closed its doors on December 2 after being evicted by its landlord, World Wide Group. The grungy bar, complete with $5 shots, classic city characters, and an iconic Marilyn poster, has appeared in several television programs, including “The Layover” and “Person of Interest.” However, it may be more famous—and hilarious—for its owner, Charlie, chasing unwanted guests out with a broom. While the bar may have to leave its former location on E. 60th , it’s found a new venue just down the street at 2nd.
