Say it ain’t so
I’ve been in mourning all day long….the iconic Tavern On The Green Restaurant located in New York’s Central Park is closing. That’s right. That beautiful restaurant filled with the chandeliers dripping with colored crystals, the one that I always included in my many group trips to New York, the restaurant that was in both “Ghostbusters” and “When Harry Met Sally” is closing. Tomorrow. Apparently they, like so many other places like them, just ran out of money.
I’ll get over this, I’m sure. But for now, I’m feeling nostalgic pain, knowing that they’re auctioning off all the mirrors and aforementioned chandeliers and other kitschy stuff that made it so unique. And now I fear that the former Crystal Dining Room will become a Wendy’s or another Subway. Sniff. Farewell, Tavern On the Green.
I wonder if the Christmas ornament I bought there in 1982 is now valuable?
Your memories of New York welcome here.
