    I hope this stays up long enough for some input from US posters. I can't see what harm it can do?
    Thinking of going to NY next April,and I want to visit Jimmy Glenn's Corner Bar on West 44th Street ,between 6th Avenue and Broadway.
    Have any of our American posters been there?
    If so, can you give me your thoughts please?

    I would describe it as a cool, low frills, reasonably priced dive bar with cool boxing-related pics and an excellent jukebox. Very narrow bar area in the front with tables toward the rear. A pretty random, diverse crowd on most nights. Gets kind of packed, especially on the Friday before NY fights, when boxing regulars flock into the place.

    Spend many a night there talking boxing, when you go there talk to Jimmy very cool guy. I haven't there in a long time. Last I heard was Jimmy was in the hospital after an accident with a taxi. It's a great place to talk boxing.

    Welcome to New York when you get here, Mac:good. I like Jimmy's and used to go there from time to time. Kevin pretty much summed it up. Thanks Kevin:good. The owner is a former boxer himself and loves to talk boxing as well. I haven't seen him in many years and hope he's doing well. It's just off Times Square, which has been cleaned up for years and is a little too sterile for me as I'd prefer the grittier, edgier version (Times Square I mean,lol). Give us a shout and I'll meet up with you for a few pints.

    The Blue Note is a well known jazz bar in Greenwich Village that has some fantastic acts. I was there a few months ago and was fortunate enough to see the great bassist Stanley Clarke. They also offer a nice live jazz brunch on Sunday's approximately noon. The Village Vanguard is a great spot too.
