The charm of another era gives this exhibit its special quality. Three eating places - an old-fashioned restaurant, a tavern and an outdoor cafe - are re-created by Liebmann Breweries beside a tree-lined park on a cobblestoned, gaslighted New York City street of 1904. The buildings and shops along the street display Victorian products. From time to time, entertainment is provided about the area. Picnickers are welcome.
* Admission: free.
FUN ON THE STREET. On special occasions guests appear on the bandstand. In addition, an instrumental quartet and other performers entertain along the street and in the tavern and cafe. Guests may play the piano and sing in the tavern at night. Park benches on the green provide excellent seats for watching the fireworks at the nearby Pool of Industry.
RESTAURANTS. The Rehingold Tavern and the adjacent Sidewalk Cafe' specialize in sandwiches, beer, coffee and soft drinks. At the opposite end of the street, The Town House Restaurant presents a turn-of-the-century setting for brunch, luncheon and dinner with the first glass of beer on the house, as a gesture of old-fashioned hospitality.


Gas lamps cast a glow on a cobblestone street where a tavern, a restaurant and an outdoor cafe' recreate the New York of 1904.

Along the street, shops display Victorian wares. A tree-shaded park with benches serves as a setting for picnics and watching the Fair's nightly fireworks.

THE STREET. Performers sing and dance outdoors and in the cafe' and tavern. Special guest stars sometimes appear on a bandstand.
RESTAURANTS. The theme of "Little Old New York" is carried out in the Town House Restaurant, where full-course meals are served (and where the first glass of beer is on the house). Light refreshments may be obtained at the Rheingold Tavern and Sidewalk Cafe'.

Admission: free.
