Paying Tribute

Though the bar's now called "Max Fish," the inspiration for its name -- left over from the space's previous life as a Judaica store -- is still evident above the front door. Come end of summer, however, that'll be all that remains of what has become an iconic skater/artist/locals' haven since 1989. The Fish will swim across the river to Williamsburg (and more budget-friendly environs); follow its journey on Instagram at @maxfishbar.
