Gerald. You really need to brush up on your geography. Washington Heights is in upper Manhattan on the westside, north of Harlem, NOT in the Bronx. And by the way, not much resemblance to PJS.

joanne the murder that took place was in the back yes ,however the two men were fighting and had a confrontation inside the bar first , then the fight continued outside so it still happened on the premises, and the place has the same clientele over and over no matter what its called because those low lifes are not welcomed in taras or lulu"s and thats the only other bar there and its right next to the train tracks and lindys low life magnet taxi service, its embarrasing yes but lets not make excuses for it ! inside,outside,opened,closed -DOS'NT MATTER it still happened there!

Is this place actually open for business or just for certain people? I drive past fairly often and never see more than one or two people inside presumably buying drugs or preparing to rob someone. I didn't even think it had electricity because the lights never look like they're on. I guess we should be thankful it's not another barber shop. Who knew so many people on one block needed haircuts and then wanted to hang out outside the shop all day?
