New York City is such an incredible city with a rich history, but so much of its history is overlooked. Toasting the Town, an E-newsletter discusses some of the stories that are lesser known. Did George Washington ever have a beer at the bar down the street? Did Mark Twain spend his summers at the beach you went to last weekend? This week on The Main Course, Alexes McLaughlin talks to guest Joe Karcinell, founder of Toasting the Town, talks about some of his favorite New York City historical anecdotes and old buildings like Landmark Tavern in Hell’s Kitchen, but also acknowledges a lot of the darker aspects of the history of this city. Tune in for some excellent story telling and fun stories about cool places around New York!
