    Is a dive still a dive if it relocates? We'll find out, as this place has reopened in a new home on 2nd avenue. http://gothamist.com/2015/03/17/subway_inn_is_back.php#photo-1

    Dive bar, for sure, but a sublime and perfected atmosphere of a New York City preserved and becoming of the best laid plans of Louis Winthorpe III and Billy Ray Valentine #TradingPlaces

    You can order wings from "Atomic Wings" here. The nuclear wings were pretty weak - ate all ten without sipping my beer. Anyways, if you're looking for a convenient dive bar, this place works.

    The new location is cleaner than the old one but the bartenders, jukebox, and crowd are the same which is good. Atomic Wings in the back of the bar.

    The food is great. There is just a great vibe here, food energy. Bartenders are fantastic. Always a good time.

    Only place in an upscale neighborhood for a working person to get a fair priced drink to unwind after work. Mingle with all aspects of life from suits to dish washers in this dive bar from another era

    One of our 10 best Manhattan bars- the dirty floors, slanted seats, ancient bar staff, and old regulars reeking of booze and death are ambiance you want to bottle.

    We truly don't value something until it is no longer there. I'm not a bar customer anywhere, so I was not one to help support them - but valued their style (& use of their bathroom a couple times.)

    Not as good as the original, but still far better than any bars in this area. Cold beer. Cheap. Clean lines. Characters.

    A genuine dive (on the upper east-side). Across from Bloomingdales.

    It still has that new bar smell! Post-renovation, it's spacious. It has no charm and definitely not a dive bar look but some divey patrons for sure.

    Great dive in a neighborhood not known for that. Watching the guys in suits try to score with women you wouldn't expect to see them with is great fun.

    Great, great dive bar. Avoid looking into the light on the booths though. They'll blind you.

    While the wife, gf or significant other shops, buying me stuff that doesn't fit, that I won't wear and is instant joke material, I sit here, drinking.
