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.

When I was a kid (50+ years ago) the family used to go to a German restaurant called Voorst's near the Bowery. I cant find any mention  of it.

Mark, are you using two "oo"s instead of one?

Try Vorst.

McSorley's Ale House on the Lower East Side dates to the 1850's or 1860's.   One recollection I have of that place is visiting w/ a friend wearing a U Virginia t-shirt.  The ia was covered up.  Some guys saw the word Virgin and hoisted him on up in the air.  The hearty drinkers haled him as the bar's only virgin that night and any night.
