PM Daily, January 2, 1945, p. 13
Boy, Were They Thirsty!
“Tavern [Old Village Restaurant] on ground floor of burning building is shelter for firemen overcome by smoke New Year’s Eve. Customers also had a hot time… Celluloid factory provides Fourth of July welcome for 1945…
They smelled no fumes but the divine fumes of alcohol. They heard no bells clanging but the happy bells in their brains… ‘Jeez! What a New Year! Boy!'”

80 Greenwich Ave. is now a parking garage and the 3 Legged Dog theater company… a celluloid factory no more… we heard the happy bells on our iPods… on a quiet, cold New Year’s Day…
