Best Gay, Lesbian & LGBTQ Bars in NYC Right Now: Queer Nightlife Spots - Thrillist
Charles Kaiser, author of The Gay Metropolis: The Landmark History of Gay Life in America , wrote that in the era after World War II , "New York City became the literal gay metropolis for hundreds of thousands of immigrants from both within and without the United States: the place they chose to learn how to live openly, honestly and without shame. The Stonewall Inn, located at 51 and 53 Christopher Street , along with several other establishments in the city, was owned by the Genovese crime family. Once a week a police officer would collect envelopes of cash as a payoff; the Stonewall Inn had no liquor license. It was the only bar for gay men in New York City where dancing was allowed;  dancing was its main draw since its re-opening as a gay club.
