Looking to experience the culinary side of New York’s history?

 

Look no further than these five classic restaurants that have been cherished by local New Yorkers for generations, all of which were founded before the turn of the 19th century.

 

Enjoy!

 

 

Fraunces Tavern NYC restaurant
Fraunces Tavern NYC restaurant today 2021

 

1. Fraunces Tavern (1762)

 

Fraunces Tavern is the city’s oldest restaurant, with a history reaching back to 1762. The history of the building itself is a point of discussion. While the brick structure that would become the restaurant’s home dates from between 1719 and 1722, it has been rebuilt and modified numerous times, leading some to question whether it can truly claim to be as old and authentic as it claims.

 

Fraunces Tavern’s continued existence is truly a miracle of perseverance. Aside from the errant cannonball, the building has survived three fires and a bombing by a Puerto Rican paramilitary organization in 1975, which killed four persons inside. The museum that lies directly above the restaurant today tells the fascinating narrative of the eatery.

 

George Washington and the Sons of Liberty met here.

 

Type of Food: American (Traditional,) Bars, Breakfast and Lunch

 

Ear Inn 1817
Ear Inn 1817 today 2021

 

2. Ear Inn (1817)

 

You’d never guess the story of the Ear Inn, which is tucked away on the far west side of Soho. Despite its long history, this quaint beer and burger business went by the name of “B” until the 1970s, when the owners covered the circular parts of the “B” with an illuminated “Bar” sign outside and the catchy name appeared.

 

In the early twentieth century, food and restaurant service became popular. The tavern was turned into a speakeasy during Prohibition and reopened to the public after the adoption of the 21st Amendment. The Ear Inn is a popular venue for a drink or a bite to eat, with nautical-themed decor and flowering flowerpots hanging outside. They’ve also established a “farm to table” philosophy, which means that even bar snacks are made using locally sourced ingredients.

 

Delmonicos 1837 before
Delmonicos 1837 today 2021

 

3. Delmonico’s  (1837)

 

New York’s first steackhouse. Delmonico’s is the name of various New York City restaurants of varying duration, quality, and fame.

 

During the 19th and early 20th centuries, the Delmonico family managed one of the first and most famous iterations at 56 Beaver Street in Lower Manhattan, earning a reputation as one of the country’s finest fine dining establishments.

 

The restaurant is noted as being one of the first in the United States to enable customers to order from a menu à la carte rather than table d’hôte. It is also the birthplace of the widely imitated Delmonico steak. It is also considered to be the first restaurant to have its own wine selection.

 

Their 56 Beaver location is unfortunately temporarily closed, but you may order pickup or delivery from their location at 375 Lexington Avenue.

 

Old homestead steakhouse 1868
Old homestead steakhouse 2021

 

4. Old Homestead Steakhouse (1868)

 

The Old Homestead Steakhouse, founded in 1868, is a steakhouse with a flagship location in Manhattan, New York City. The restaurant is the country’s oldest continuously functioning steakhouse.

 

The restaurant is senior to Keens and Peter Luger Steak House.

 

Food type:  Steaks, Meat.

 

JP Clarkes NYC Before and after

5. PJ Clarke’s  (1884)

 

A favorite of Frank Sinatra and JFK, amongst others. 

 

P. J. Clarke’s is a saloon that has been in business since 1884. It is located at 915 Third Avenue in Manhattan, on the northeast corner of East 55th Street. It also has a second site on the southeast corner of Columbus Avenue at 44 West 63rd Street.

 

Food type:  Hamburgers, Pub Food

Most Recent Testimonials for Carlos Alleyne

 

“I’ve known Carlos for 15 years and all I can say is how professional and helpful he is. As a real estate agent, he is very informative, resourceful, and patient. He quickly responds to your inquires and will present your best options.

 

He was my go-to when I had questions about purchasing my very first home and continues to be when looking for future investments. I’ve referred him to my brother and friends because I know they’re going to the best service in NYC.” 

– Janderie G.

 

 

 

 

“Carlos has immense knowledge as a realtor which immediately put me at ease with the information he provided in understanding the housing process. He also walked me through any difficult questions that I had, which helped me immensely. The process is an extensive one, and he was available every step of the way. As a client, he made sure that I understood everything and that I was comfortable before making a decision.


Furthermore, he was very punctual. This is extremely important when time availability is at a premium for me. Having a realtor that values my time is key. I knew that Carlos would value me as a client regardless of my income. I was surprised that he even called me days later to follow up, to make sure I was comfortable with my decision. That impressed me to know that he cared for my well-being as a human being, and not just a number to be filled.


In closing, I hope I never need a realtor again, but if I do I will immediately be calling Carlos.

Top 5 Rooftops in New York City 2021

We all know that this summer, after over a year in quarantine, everyone will be excited to go out and about. Below are the most sought-after rooftops in New York that we recommend for this summer 2021.

New York is, without doubt, one of the finest places in the world to enjoy stunning city skyscapes whilst relaxing with a drink on a rooftop bar. With international travel plans pretty much on hold for the moment, here are our top five rooftop bars where you can enjoy a little bit of the rest of the world without leaving the city. 

Serra by Birreria best manhattan rooftops 2021

 

 1. SERRA by Birreria

 

This little corner of Italy can be found on the 15th floor of the Italian store Eataly and offers a cozy plant-filled environment in which to enjoy some hearty rustic Italian food. There’s a great choice of Italian beer and organically produced wine to complement the food. The view is a little restricted due to the partial covering of the terrace, but you can still get to admire the iconic Empire State and Flatiron buildings which are close by.

Savanna Rooftop best manhattan rooftops 2021

 

2. Savanna Rooftop

 

Be transported to the vast savannas of Africa when you visit this colorful rooftop terrace in the heart of Long Island. No need to worry if the New York weather is at times a little colder than Africa as you can retreat to the heated Sky Suites to keep the chill away.  The bar food is international and the drinks menu offers craft beer and wine, along with their signature cocktails.  At weekends you can enjoy a relaxed brunch before a livelier DJ-led vibe takes over in the evening.

 

Note: Savanna Rooftop is currently undergoing a quick seasonal renovation but should reopen soon – we’re excited to see how great it looks after their renovation!

 

 

Azul Rooftop Bar Manhattan Best Rooftops 2021

 

3. Azul Rooftop Bar 

 

This rooftop bar on the top of the Hotel Hugo takes its inspiration from the vibrancy of Cuba. You can relax with a refreshing cocktail and nibble on some bar snacks whilst taking in the stunning 360-degree views of Lower Manhattan. There’s a laid-back lounge feel during the week, but at weekends the energy levels rise with live DJs to get the party atmosphere going.

Terrace on 7 Best Rooftops in Manhattan 2021

 

4. Terrace on 7

 

If you are looking for a touch of Japanese exclusivity, then Terrace on 7 might be the rooftop bar for you. You’ll find this lush city oasis on top of the luxury Dominick Hotel, which although not particularly tall, still offers impressive views over the Hudson River and the Manhattan skyline. The wow factor comes in the shape of a beautiful mosaic-lined pool which is open to non-hotel guests if you book a private cabana for the day. Both the food and the drink are Japanese-inspired, with fresh sushi and light dishes on the menu to accompany fresh cocktails.

 

Terrace on 7 is located at The Dominick hotel

 

Azul Rooftop Bar Manhattan Best Rooftops 2021

 

5. Pod 39 Rooftop

 

Opening at 5 pm, this makes a great after-work spot where you can unwind with a beer or cocktail whilst taking in amazing views of Midtown Manhattan’s skyscrapers. Sitting in this Mexican-themed rooftop bar on top of the hotel, you are surrounded by arches of ivy-clad 19Th-century brickwork which are b beautifully illuminated by lanterns as night falls. It’s no surprise that this is a popular spot, particularly with a younger crowd.  Should you fancy a bite to eat, light meals including tacos from the hotel’s Mexican restaurant are available.

LGBTQ+? Know Your Housing Rights

Rent, Buy or Sell Verified Apartments in NYC

Members of the LGBTQ+ Community:
Learn more about your housing rights!

The experience of a member of the LGBTQ+ community with sexual orientation or gender identity housing discrimination may be covered by the Fair Housing Act. Know your rights.

LGBT renting in nyc

The federal Fair Housing Act prohibits housing discrimination based on race, color, national origin, religion, sex, disability, and familial status (i.e., presence of children in the household).

 

The Fair Housing Act does not specifically include sexual orientation and gender identity as prohibited bases.

 

However, a lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender (LGBT) person’s experience with sexual orientation or gender identity housing discrimination may still be covered by the Fair Housing Act. In addition, housing providers that receive HUD funding, have loans insured by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA), as well as lenders insured by FHA, may be subject to HUD program regulations intended to ensure equal access of LGBT persons.

 

 

Let’s look at a few examples of how Fair Housing laws can provide protection:

 

Example 1: A property manager refuses to rent an apartment to a prospective tenant who is transgender. If the housing denial is because of the prospective tenant’s non-conformity with gender stereotypes, it may constitute illegal discrimination on the basis of sex under the Fair Housing Act.

 

Example 2: A gay man is evicted because his landlord believes he will infect other tenants with HIV/AIDS. That situation may constitute illegal disability discrimination under the Fair Housing Act because the man is perceived to have a disability, HIV/AIDS.

 

Example 3: An underwriter for an FHA insured loan is reviewing an application where two male incomes are being used as the basis for the applicants’ credit worthiness. The underwriter assumes the applicants are a gay couple and, as a result, denies the application despite the applicants’ glowing credentials. This scenario may violate HUD regulations which prohibit FHA-insured lenders from taking actual or perceived sexual orientation into consideration in determining the adequacy of an applicant’s income.

 

 

Being a member of the LGBT community renting in NYC may not always be easy.

 

At Replay Listings, we verify EVERY apartment representative to make sure they comply with a respectful code of ethics geared towards equal opportunity for all. Let Replay Listings, the best apartment finder app, be the key to helping you in finding your next home.

Below is a summary of the HUD LGBT Final Rule of 2012:

 

Through this final rule, HUD implements policy to ensure that its core programs are open to all eligible individuals and families regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, or marital status.

 

This rule follows a January 24, 2011, proposed rule, which noted evidence suggesting that lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) individuals and families are being arbitrarily excluded from housing opportunities in the private sector.

 

Such information was of special concern to HUD, which, as the Nation’s housing agency, has the unique charge to promote the federal goal of providing decent housing and a suitable living environment for all.

 

It is important not only that HUD ensure that its own programs do not involve discrimination against any individual or family otherwise eligible for HUD-assisted or-insured housing, but that its policies and programs serve as models for an equal housing opportunity.

 

Fair Housing Act

 

The Fair Housing Act prohibits housing discrimination on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, familial status, and disability. A person who identifies as LGBTQ who has experienced (or is about to experience) discrimination under any of these bases may file a complaint with HUD. HUD is committed to investigating violations of the Fair Housing Act against all individuals regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity.

 

 

Here’s a great but lengthy video we found by the HUD (Housing and Urban Development) on understanding and strengthening fair housing for all. If you’re a member of the LGBTQ+ community and are looking to rent an apartment, knowing your rights is important – this video can help.

 

HUD’s regulations requiring equal access to members of the LGBTQ+ community include the following:

 

  • A general equal access provision that requires housing that is funded by HUD or subject to a mortgage insured by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) to be made available without regard to actual or perceived sexual orientation, gender identity, or marital status.

  • Clarification that the terms “family” and “household” as used in HUD programs include persons, regardless of actual or perceived sexual orientation, gender identity, or marital status.

  • Prohibition on owners and operators of HUD-funded housing or housing insured by FHA from asking about an applicant’s or occupant’s sexual orientation or gender identity for the purpose of determining eligibility or otherwise making housing available.

  • Prohibition on FHA lenders from taking into account actual or perceived sexual orientation or gender identity in determining the adequacy of a potential borrower’s income.

State and Local Additional Protections

 

Many state, city, and county laws specifically include sexual orientation and gender identity as prohibited bases, so all licensed real estate agents need to make sure they are informed and compliant with any possible LGBT violations. 

 

 

If you have a general question or need information about reporting a violation of HUD program regulations or the Fair Housing Act, you can email LGBTFairhousing@hud.gov.

 

 

You can use the following resource to see if your state offers protection to additional classes:

Recent HUD Update Regarding Criminal History

 

On April 4th, 2015, HUD’s Office of General Counsel issued guidance concerning how the Fair Housing Act applies to the use of criminal history by providers or operators of housing and real-estate-related transactions. Specifically, the guidance addresses how the discriminatory effects and disparate treatment methods of proof apply in Fair Housing Act cases in which a housing provider justifies an adverse housing action – such as a refusal to rent or renew a lease – based on an individual’s criminal history.

 

The Fair Housing Act prohibits both intentional housing discrimination and housing practices that have an unjustified discriminatory effect because of race, national origin, or other protected characteristics. Because of widespread racial and ethnic disparities in the U.S. criminal justice system, criminal history-based restrictions on access to housing are likely disproportionately to burden African Americans and Hispanics.

 

While the Act does not prohibit housing providers from appropriately considering criminal history information when making housing decisions, arbitrary and overbroad criminal history-related bans are likely to lack a legally sufficient justification. Thus, a discriminatory effect resulting from a policy or practice that denies housing to anyone with a prior arrest or any kind of criminal conviction cannot be justified, and therefore such a practice would violate the Fair Housing Act.

 

Policies that exclude persons based on criminal history must be tailored to serve the housing provider’s substantial, legitimate, nondiscriminatory interest and take into consideration such factors as the type of the crime and the length of the time since conviction. Where a policy or practice excludes individuals with only certain types of convictions, a housing provider will still bear the burden of proving that any discriminatory effect caused by such policy or practice is justified. Such a determination must be made on a case-by-case basis.

 

Selective use of criminal history as a pretext for unequal treatment of individuals based on race, national origin, or other protected characteristics violates the Act.

 

In summary, the use of any policy that excludes persons based upon criminal history may be a violation of the Fair Housing Act. When forming a new policy or reviewing a current policy, it is best to consult legal counsel to avoid being in violation, inadvertently or not, of the Fair Housing Act.

Midtown West, Manhattan Neighborhood NYC

 

Midtown West is a large area of Manhattan that ranges from Eighth Ave. to the Hudson River on the East to West Boundaries and 59th St. to 34th St. on the North to South boundaries.

 

Similar to other commercial areas in NYC, Midtown West was slow to see residential development due to its gritty nature and far west reach.

 

Midtown West is an emerging residential neighborhood that developers and small businesses alike are transforming into a 24-hour neighborhood. Great dining, affordable apartments, and a low-key vibe have become defining elements of the neighborhood.

 

Due to its eclectic, no-frills vibe, Midtown West is home to performance artists, professionals, and long-time residents, if you live here you’ll be part of the continued neighborhood change.

 

 

 

Let Replay Listings, the best apartment finder app, be the key to helping you with your Midtown West apartment listings and finding your next home!

Roughy 140,247 people call Midtown West home. A traditionally very gritty, commercial neighborhood, the Midtown West has become known for its laid-back vibe, affordable apartments, eclectic dining, and new luxury residential development.

 

The Midtown West historically is recognized as a low-key, gritty commercial district, currently, it has become the epicenter for some iconic, luxury real estate developments. According to the US Census Report of 2016, its current residents are 15% Latino, 61% White, and 16% Asian.

 

The vast majority of families and residents live in multifamily housing, more specifically, 90% live in housing with 10 or more units in a 3.1 square miles radi.

 

In addition, 30% of housing is two bedroom apartments and three bedroom apartments. This supports a population density of 45,240 people per square mile, compared to NYC at 30,000 people per square mile or roughly, 1.5 times more densely populated than Manhattan. Midtown West density is what provides for a culturally rich and lively environment. In addition, its mix of studio apartment rentals, 1 bedroom apartment rentals, 2 bedroom apartment rentals, and 3 bedroom apartment rentals support a diverse, thriving community.

We currently do not have a video tour for Midtown West. However, check out the video below, which will tour you through the Chelsea neighborhood (South of Midtown West) with our partner James Marcolin.

In addition, Midtown West is home to iconic buildings, world-class real estate developments, and cutting-edge dining. The Atelier is a 46-story glass condominium tower located at 635 West 42nd Street offering some of the finest luxury apartments for sale in Clinton.

 

The condominiums at The Atelier embody the best of Manhattan luxury living, with spacious floor plans, quality finishes, and state-of-the-art kitchens and baths.

The Upper West Side, commonly referred to simply as the UWS, is a neighborhood in the borough of Manhattan, New York City, that lies between Central Park and the Hudson River and between West 59th Street and West 110th Street.

 

The Upper West Side is sometimes also considered by the real estate industry to include the neighborhood of Morningside Heights.

 

Nestled between Riverside and Central Park, the Upper West Side is one of the greenest parts of Manhattan. The UWS is an iconic neighborhood known for its gentle manor, artistic and academic charm, and quintessential NYC charm. It is home to popular attractions like the Natural History Museum and Lincoln Center, as well as relaxed bistros and glitzy pubs and bars.

Roughy 189,492 people call Upper West Side home.

 

A charming, densely populated community. UWS historically is recognized as a home to artists, professors, filmmakers, and writers.

 

According to the US Census Report of 2016, 73% of current residents are White. The vast majority of families and residents live in multifamily housing, more specifically, 89% live in housing with 20 or more units in a 3 square miles radius.

 

In addition, 41% of housing is two bedroom apartments and three bedroom apartments. This supports a population density of 63,164 people per square mile, compared to NYC at 30,000 people per square mile or roughly, 2 times more densely populated than NYC.

 

UWS’s density is what provides for a culturally rich and lively environment. In addition, its mix of studio apartment rentals, 1 bedroom apartment rentals, 2 bedroom apartment rentals, and 3 bedroom apartment rentals support a diverse, eclectic community. 


In addition, Upper West Side supports rich and vibrant cultural centers and amenities. The American Museum of Natural History, “Located on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, New York City, is one of the largest museums in the world. Located in Theodore Roosevelt Park, across the street from Central Park, the museum complex comprises 28 interconnected buildings housing 45 permanent exhibition halls, in addition to a planetarium and a library.

 

The museum collections contain over 33 million specimens of plants, animals, fossils, minerals, rocks, meteorites, human remains, and human cultural artifacts, of which only a small fraction can be displayed at any given time, and occupies more than 2 million square feet.”

 

Since its founding in 1869, the Museum has advanced its global mission to discover, interpret, and disseminate information about human cultures, the natural world, and the universe through a wide-ranging program of scientific research, education, and exhibition.

 

In addition, the Children’s Museum of Manhattan, a museum dedicated to youth development, states, “[Its] hands-on learning environments, programs, and curricula are all produced through an alchemy of fun, research, and museum science”.

 

The UWS also offers convenient access to Central Park, a Frederick Law Olmsted designed, 843 acres, landscaped park.

 

Central Park boasts the title of the most visited urban, park in the USA.

Continually, Upper West Side has become defined by its artistic, approachable yet sophisticated charm.

 

Central Park, high-quality museums, and sleek restaurants and bars establish the UWS as an iconic, timeless NYC neighborhood.

 

A restaurant that represents the UWS charm is the neighborhood classic Marlow, it’s a neighborhood cafe filled with candles and potted plants, yet feels like the setting for a first date scene in a romantic comedy.

 

In addition, Turkish coffeeshops, salad & juice bars, high-end cinema, and specialty bookstores make the UWS a timeless classic.

 

The New York Times states, “The Upper West Side is one of Manhattan’s most prosperous neighborhoods, but it lacks the stuffiness and sterility of the Upper East Side, that enclave of the super-rich just across the park. Instead, this is home to bankers, lawyers, media types, rumpled intellectuals, yuppies pushing strollers, and out-of-work actors walking their dogs.

 

It’s a livable, convenient neighborhood, with a tiny dash of hip and a decidedly liberal bent (hence its nickname, the People’s Republic of the Upper West Side).”

Replay listings began with a focus on rental apartments in New York City.

To understand our future, here’s a quick recap of our past:

 

  • In 2017, we:

    • Created a simple informative Wix website

  • In 2018, we:
    • Launched our iOS App on the Apple Store – focusing on Manhattan rentals
    • Launched our newest website, “Replay 2.0,” with search capabilities
    • Released our Android App to the Google Store

  • In 2019, we:
    • Opened up our platform to NYC’s five boroughs
    • Became NYU and Wharton trusted partners
    • Added new features, such as “Save Draft,” “Upload my Video,”
    • Improved our UX/UI (user experience)

So, What Now?

 

On the Web: Agent’s Web Dashboard

 

Now, we grow. On our website side of things, we’re building a dashboard that will allow agents to manage, edits, and create new listings from your computer. The dashboard will also present some key insights that will help you make more informed decisions.

 

The Agent’s Web Dashboard will change the way you work by allowing you to easily search for any properties you’d like to share with your clients and copy-paste the URLs to quickly create an email with all the information you need.

 

You will be able to safely share your listings with your clients without the fear of losing them in the process. We DO NOT show “similar listings on the neighborhood,” and we intend to improve the communication between you and your potential clients.

 

 

Across the platform: dealing with audio

 

It’s interesting to mention that our users have access to the audio of the video tours via the website, and we’re working on the user experience side of things so that in the near future, agents will be able to easily add audio to their iOS listings if they want to.

 

Similar to Instagram, users will be able to mute/unmute the audio in your listings with one click. To add to that, if you (the agent) want us to permanently mute the audio on any particular listing (to focus on the video) you will also be able to do that with a simple click while uploading the listing.

 

More exciting news on this topic coming soon!

 

 

On the iOS App: Agent’s Newsfeed

 

It was time for us to communicate more efficiently with you, the agents, as well. So we created a news section on the app, in which we will be able to update you with valuable information – such as a list of landlords and the concessions they are offering. We love being in close contact with our customer agents, and we’re very much looking forward to this one! 

 

 

The Sales Platform

 

We’re also improving and continuing to polish the sales side of the platform. Now, you can add videos, pictures, open houses, and many more amenities. We are polishing the app to make it look more professional and incentivize potential buyers to reach you. Our focus is to have a transparent and honest approach, and we believe we can get there and at the same time present image and video assets that are beautiful. We have a surprise for you coming soon, which will truly elevate the quality of the video listings you upload – so stay tuned!

 

We are working hard every day to make sure that you are happy using our platform. If you have any comments, questions, suggestions, feedback, or anything you would like to share with us, please feel free to reach out to me directly at rodolfo@replaylistings.com. Thank you!
