Tavern on Green, NYC
Built in 1934
Photographed in Dec. 2008
Tavern on the Green was originally created as an 'affordable' dining alternative for the middle class,
located in Central Park on the Upper West Side of New York City, in the United States. With 2007
gross revenues of $38 million, from more than 500,000 visitors, it was the second highest-grossing
independently-owned 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 (picture on
the top), which features windows overlooking the restaurant's adjacent garden in Central Park.
Tavern on the Green had its last seating on December 31, 2009. It is auctioning off its interior
decorations and closing its doors because of bankruptcy.
