NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio made an appearance at Neir’s Tavern this afternoon to celebrate the acquisition of a five year long lease for the establishment and congratulate its owner, Loycent Gordon.

Noted as the oldest establishment of its kind in the city of New York, the bar’s survival has faced stumbling blocks for some time now. With the help of community members and leaders it’s managed to stay afloat.

Neir’s is located at 87-48 78th st in Woodhaven section of Queens, borough.

The tavern’s been in operation since 1829 and is the site where scenes for films such as Goodfellas and Tower Heist have been shot.

Mayor de Blasio:

“Everybody, this is joyous, this is joyous, because what Loy says that we now have a chance to get a new lease on life. That is true for New York’s Tavern and that is true for all of New York City. You said it beautifully. We’ve been through so much but here’s a chance to start over and do something amazing. Loy you’ve been amazing. No matter what was thrown at you, you stuck with it. That is the New York City Spirit. That strength, that resilience you stuck with it, you stayed hopeful. And when people heard your story they came flocking … because you’re preserving something beautiful here and you’re making it even better. I want to thank you first and foremost, and your family, your employees. Neir’s Tavern is here. It’s almost 200 years that Neir’s Tavern is here because of you.”
