On March 13 (sorry, it’s sold out)
Acclaimed photographer and filmmaker, Neil Leifer, turns his lens on a true American success story, New York City restaurateur, Jimmy Neary. The documentary follows Neary’s journey from his humble immigrant roots in Ireland to his 50-year run as proprietor of one of Gotham’s iconic eateries. The film features notable regulars, including Timothy Cardinal Dolan, former NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Goldman Sachs’s CEO Lloyd Blankfein.
The screening will be followed by a panel discussion with:
Timothy Cardinal Dolan, Archbishop of New York
Neil Leifer, Director
Jimmy Neary, Owner of Neary’s
Una Neary, Managing Director, Goldman Sachs
(Neary’s is a bar – or should I say a pub – near the Archdiocesan headquarters, and a favorite of those who work there. To call it “iconic” is to take liberty. But what will Neary’s do, if current plans to sell “1011” materialize?)
