Fraunces Tavern Has Reopened
Fraunces Tavern: staying power.
After months of renovations, Fraunces Tavern, the bar where George Washington said goodbye to his troops in 1783, reopened last night, the Daily News reports. The bar's original ceiling beams have been uncovered, and much of its new furniture has been made from wood reclaimed from locations as diverse as a Brooklyn bowling alley and the bar's own floorboards. An adjacent restaurant is expected to open January 17.
