Marie's Crisis Cafe, Greenwich Village, NYC.

Marie's Crisis Cafe dates back to the 1850s, when it operated as a prostitutes' den. It became a bar by the 1890s and even remained open during Prohibition when it was known just as "Marie's". The "Crisis" was added to the name from the "Crisis Papers" by Thomas Paine who died in the building. It now operates primarily as a piano bar where patrons can sing Broadway show tunes along with the piano player.
