In fact, taking a casual stroll on any given day will likely result in you sharing a carafe of wine with some of the area’s neighborhood residents at La Carafe – one of the city’s oldest bars in the city’s oldest commercial building and who’s celebrity roster includes artists and musicians such as Liberace and James Baldwin – to grabbing a coveted spot on the lawn at nearby Market Square Park, where friends and families have already begun gathering for a night of Blanket Bingo or an outdoor movie.
