McGovern's Tavern, Newark, New Jersey since 1936.

Another old timer from Northern NJ and Essex County:   The Verona Inn, open since 1947.  Definitely a Cheers type bar:

Well, having been to about 2/3rds of the list over the years, I guess my only reaction is to say that, if anyone wants to know anything about any of them, let me know.  Otherwise, yep, they're all old.  

Just bringing this back up to the top in case anyone is interested.

The writer of a January 1,1859 (that's correct) NYT review of NYC restaurants ended by noting that unlike certain London saloons, he knew of no  establishments "...where the knives and forks are chained to the table to prevent their being stolen, and a Newfoundland dog is kept under the table for guests to wipe their hands on."

[I appreciate these last few entries - I'm running out the door, and am leaving a reminder to myself to get them onto the list.]
