McSorley’s: NYC’s Most Iconic Ale House with my Nokia Lumia Icon

My Visit to NYC’s  Most Iconic Ale House with my Nokia Lumia Icon

  I felt like I was transported back to an era of long ago… . A  coal burning iron stove in the front room.  A steampunk-ish brass and dark wood device for pulling draft beer.

Established in 1854- McSorley’s has had everyone from Abe Lincoln to John Lennon pass through their swinging doors. Read more.. McSorleys Draft Beer Irish Blessing We chose McSorley’s as one of our St. Patrick’s Day pub stops because of the brew and the history.

The framed pictures on the walls create a historical, museum vibe. Quaint and cozy, sipping our brews next to the fireplace that has numerous signature carvings of visitors gone by.

An absolute “must have” to engage your taste buds, the cheese/cracker/onion platter along with the corned beef, red cabbage and steamed vegetable platter.

I decided to start my St Patrick’s Day celebration in an Iconic Ale House with my new Nokia Lumia Icon smartphone.

I was eager to test out  this smartphone from Verizon since opening the box and attending a Nokia Webinar just the other day.

The 20-megapixel camera with single-finger zoom along with the HD video and awesome stereo worked out perfectly for my visit to a busy, noisy pub.
