Bowery Bar Beginnings - 1994

NY Times article from '94........more about this to come. 

"The NoHo Neighborhood Association and some members of Community Board 2 argue that the bar, and others they believe would open in its wake, will erode the character of the area by changing it from a haven for light industry and artists into a trendy night spot."

Pre-1994 this space was used as a parking lot for Cooper Union, and a work/storage space for its Engineering school.  I have some B&W pictures kicking around of the interior from my college days, I will post some when I find them.  I don't think I have any of the exterior, but I'm not 100% sure.
