Great Dive Bars in NYC ?

A bit of an odd request but we are heading to NYC in 2 weeks.

My husband wants to see something that is a bit rough and ready around the edges thats very local and authentic.

Can anyone help please?

I found this article - is there anything worthy in here.

    Vazac's Horseshoe Bar or informally known as "7B". The godfather was filmed there back in the day. Very divey with various types in and out. Arcade games. Actual name is vazac horseshoe bar on 7th street and avenue b. Also check out the small restaurant next door for deep fried burgers.

    I would try McSorleys Old Ale House at 15 E 7th St, New York, NY 10003. Its probably the oldest bar in the city and they serve two types of beer, "Light or Dark".

    Cheers!

    There are a few good bars, with great atmosphere at Stone St, (like The Dubliner) , downtown, near Wall Street. Cobblestone streets, no cars, and a handful of great bars all bundled up. Great scene, especially once the weather is nice.

    The 55 Bar, 55 Christopher St, dates to 1919. It's a shithole, with great staff and music every night. Highly recommended.

    The only thing you'll find at McSorleys and Rudy's are fratty types and very suspect drunken types. Don't go to Midtown for anything authentic. Many of my favorite old spots have been closed, but a few still exist... If you want to stick to Manhattan, check out:

    Grassroots Tavern: an institution even though it's on the raucous St Marks (which is now totally touristy and not at all punk)

    Blue & Gold Tavern was always a favorite... typically quiet earlier in the night, a great jukebox and the cheapest drinks anywhere

    Manitoba's Another gem in Alphabet City

    Welcome To The Johnsons also really "rough and ready" and that whole neighborhood is about the only remaining place you'll find any real NYC edge. Also The Whiskey Ward

    One of my favorite bars in all of NYC, and really in all of the world, is McSorleys Old Ale House. It's more Irish pub, but it's incredibly authentic since it's the oldest Irish pub in NYC and has hosted a ton of dignitaries and famous people. Just an incredible atmosphere, and only two beers (house beers) that you order, a light and a dark. Jimmy's Corner is actually in the middle of Times Square. However, it really is worth the trip in an area of NYC that can leave a lot to be desired. Cheap beer, divey atmosphere, and great people-watching..
