Everybody wants to go where everybody knows their name. So, the blog I Quant NY set out to find the oldest liquor license in every New York City neighborhood and map them. The results are fascinating.

I Quant NY used New York State’s open data website to find the start date of liquor licenses. The oldest recorded NYC liquor license belonged to The Harmonie Club On East 60th Street in the Upper East Side, dating back to 1933.

The oldest beer license is for Nathan’s Famous in Coney Island, which dates back to 1934. And the oldest liquor store license is from 1941, and it belongs to North End Wine and Liquor in the Bronx, according to I Quant NY.

Find the oldest in your neighborhood on the below map.
