At Sammy’s-on-the-Bowery

‘At no. 267 Bowery, sandwiched in between Missions and quarter-a-night flop houses, is “Sammy’s”, the poorman’s Stork Club. There is no cover charge nor cigarette girl, and a vending machine dispenses cigarettes. Neither there a hat check girl. Patrons prefer to dance with their hats and coats on. But there is a lively floor show…the only saloon on the Bowery with a cabaret licence…the place is jammed with the uptown crowd mingling with the Bowery crowd and enjoying it…Sammy is known as the “mayor of the Bowery” and his ambition is to become Mayor of New York City. And when that happy day arrives Sammy promises free drinks in every gin mill in town. (from Naked City)
