NYC's Most Loaded Speakeasy; Gramercy Park Changing Locks

GRAMURRAY?One more Open House New York tidbit for the day. We swung by the 69th Regiment Armory on Lexington Avenue and 26th Street because armories are creepy and awesome. This one, a National Historic Landmark where the country's taste for modern art was born, is still active! We knew this not because of all the soldiers walking around or the active ammunition lockers, but because of how well-stocked the bars are. The National Guardsman gather in several memorabilia-lined private watering holes within the building, including the Garryowen Club (named after one of the regiment's marching tunes), the one we were actually able to photograph. Forget PDT and Milk & Honey, this is a speakeasy we'd be interested in gaining access to. [CurbedWire Staff]

GRAMERCY?A note to all those carrying bootlegged copies of Gramercy Park keys (not that we'd ever believe such contraband exists!): Arlene hath spoken, and the locks on Gramercy Park are being changed tomorrow. Party tonight? [CurbedWire Inbox]
