I need a list and description of gay bars and clubs(male)in Manhattan.
The list should be limited to establishments that are currently in
operation and have been open since at least 1989.  Please include the
type of crowd (yuppie, leather, etc.)that each bar attracts as well
as the year it opened for business.

Dear Dave, 

How many bars or clubs should the list contain?

Hard to say.  I'm not looking for an exhaustive or the definitive
list.  Just imagine all of the same sources you would use to find a
list of bars and clubs today; Village Voice, New York magazine,
whatever, but that you had gone back in time to 1989.  I'm basically
looking for the places that were cool, popular and in business at that
time.  Let me know if this clarifies things.

I've found directories of gay bars in New York and a site mentioning
the best establishments in 2003 (including gay bars), but I've still
not happened on any archive containing the best of 1989. I guess
someone with with access to more intimate knowledge of the subject
could be of more help.

If any of those lists mentioned how long the bars have been open,
that, of course, would answer the question.

Hmm, it proves very difficult to find out which bar harkens back to
1989. The list of the best bars are always current, and are all I have
for now. And if there are bars that were around since 1989, I doubt
they'll preserve all of the spirit of that time, they'll have to
change how they look and work to go with the times. I'll leave this
question open to other reseachers who might know better, but if you'd
like me to post what I've collected, do let me know.

Thanks to all who have looked into this.  Since three researchers and
I have had difficulty I think the answer may lie in another medium
(i.e The New York Times on microfilm.)  It seems 1989 is the Dark Ages
when it comes to the net.
