Filmmaker Jay Cusato is hard at work on a documentary about Farrell’s Bar on ninth avenue and 16th street. Jay and his crew will tell the story of the famous bar in “Why Farrell’s?”
There will be a launch party on Saturday, February 29th. Shepherd’s Hall at Holy Name (Ninth Avenue and Prospect Avenue) will be the place to be. The party gets under way at 6:30 PM.
There will be a full night of entertainment. Music, beer, wine, and snacks included. There will also be some rare and unique collectible items that will only be available this night. There will also be a silent auction.
Everyone who grew up in the neighborhood has a story or two about Farrell’s. Even those that grew up outside the neighborhood could share a few stories too. Somehow we have to get the Pete Hamil-Shirley MacLaine story straight…
Here’s a link to Jay’s website on the documentary. https://whyfarrells.com/
Also, here’s a cool trailer on some of the work put together thus far.
