The gutter on Weehawken Street outside of The Dugout.
the Dugout is still open? The Christopher Street piers, Mary.
[quote]what are some funky 1950s landmarks? Or 1960s?
Some of the queens around the piano at The Monster
Fedora, that funky Italian place - although I think it's something else now
the Stonewall Bar on Christopher
The Village cigar store Sheridan Square and the park
What crawled up r3's ass and died? This is a totally inoffensive question.
Not '50s'-60s, but just across from the Stonewall, be sure to see and photograph yourself at the Segal statue, "Gay Liberation," in Christopher Park, 7th Ave. & Christopher.
Relax at lunch at Manatus, 340 Bleeker, between Christopher and W. 10th.

He asked for landmarks older than that. Manatus is only from the early 90s. [Wasn't it something like Sebastian's until some time in the 80s?]
Fedora's finally closed about a year or so ago. Remember that yesteryear's Greenwich Village has largely disappeared and been transformed into stroller and nanny civilization, much to oldtimers' complaints. Some of the "feel" of the village has morphed into Chelsea, and some of the landmarks noted are still there, but the atmosphere of the "Village" has largely vanished.
r11 Manatus was Aldo's gay bar and restaurant
Pre 50's at Grove and Bedford is the six-story apartment house used as the exterior on "Friends."
A block south of "Friends" is 75 1/2 Bedford, the narrowest house in the Village. Many famous people have lived there.

We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
