Keens Steakhouse, New York. Here, a group of gentlemen dine at Keens in the 1910’s.

Keens Steakhouse is a steakhouse restaurant located at 72 West 36th Steet (between Fifth Avenue and Sixth Avenue) in the Garment District in Manhattan, New York City.   The restaurant houses more than 50,000 smoking pipes.

New York teems with venerable, historic restaurants and boasts a fair share of the country’s most distinguished steakhouses, yet Keens Steakhouse stands above the rest. Albert Keen founded the restaurant in 1885 in what was then the Theater District, Herald Square. Now, it’s a living relic, with a handful of clubby, wood-paneled rooms decked out in historic paraphernalia, framed old paintings, photographs and menus.
