Tavern on the Green Central Park West New York NYC, Entrance to Restaurant with Customers being picked up by a Taxi. - http://www.travellinksdirectory.com/l... - The Wikipedia article details the history of this famous restaurant until its closure in 2009 -- "Tavern on the Green was an American cuisine restaurant located in Central Park on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, in New York City. It remained in operation from 1934 to 2009 under various owners. As of October 15, 2010, the building is a public visitors center and gift shop run by the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation, retaining the name Tavern on the Green. The restaurant in 2007 had gross revenues of $38 million, from more than 500,000 visitors, making it the second-highest-grossing independent restaurant in the United States (behind The Venetian's Tao restaurant in Las Vegas, at $67 million). Of the several dining rooms, the most famous was the Crystal Room, which features windows overlooking the restaurant's adjacent garden in Central Park...In September 2009, the restaurant filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, located in New York City, citing the 2009 national financial crisis and the August 28, 2009 loss of the restaurant's operating license. Tavern on the Green had its last seating on December 31, 2009. It auctioned off its interior decorations and closed its doors after filing for bankruptcy. On October 15, 2010, the city re-opened the building as a visitors information center with a gift shop selling city-themed t-shirts and hats and other memorabilia. Street vendors sell food outside. Adrian Benepe, New York City Parks Commissioner, said at the opening ceremony that the future of the building remains open depending on how well the visitors center does. The glass-enclosed Crystal Room was removed, exposing the original 19th century architecture. While the original restaurant was a private establishment, the new facility is public space in a public park." The link to the Tavern on the Green wiki is on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tavern_o...
