The Stonewall Inn:

Located in Greenwich Village, this bar and cultural landmark is where the gay liberation movement began  over 50 years ago (the Stonewall Riots took place in 1969). Even though The Stonewall Inn is now a National Historic Landmark, that doesn’t mean the fun has died down. The bar continues to be a popular queer space with drag shows, karaoke, dance events and Pride-themed events. Sit at the long bar on the main level or venture to the  second-floor dedicated to performances.

Brooklyn

3 Dollar Bill:
