Among the oldest and most historic bars in the country, Neir's Tavern & Café is located in the Woodhaven section of Queens in New York City, near the Brooklyn border. Over 180 years old, it is one of the few old drinking establishments that have been in almost continuous operation (Prohibition notwithstanding) and in the same location, for its entire history. Neir's is known as the tavern where Mae West first performed, where actors such as W.C. Fields and businessmen like Fred Trump (Donald's father) would gather for a drink. It has also gained fame as the bar in which the classic Martin Scorsese film, Goodfellas, starring Robert DeNiro, Joe Pesci, Ray Liotta and Lorraine Bracco, was filmed. Recently Tower Heist (fall 2011) movie starring Ben Stiller, Eddie Murphy, Tea Leoni & Alan Alda was filmed here.
