My grandfather, Martin Fogarty, was the bartender there during World War II. He received a “Certificate of Appreciciation” from the owner at the time, William Roche, for what I believe was his ability to take peoples minds off of the war while they were at the Old Bridge Tavern. He also worked at the Lakes of Sligo and Sweeney’s on 231st Street. He was often reffered to as the “Mayor of 231st Street.”
