Definitely a dive bar leftover from the New York of yesteryear—it turned 30 in 2009—you can never be sure who or exactly what you'll meet at Rawhide, Chelsea's self-proclaimed first and oldest gay bar. Weekends seem to be open almost at all times, and when every other place is closed, the good, the bad and the ugly drift here. It's where fascinating meets terrifying, where old meets young, and where the rubber meets the road—in more ways than one. It's a cultural anthropoligist's dream come true determining here who has his hand on the bottle or feet on the throttle.
