New York • A dive bar that's been open on Manhattan's Upper East Side for almost eight decades is facing eviction, and the family that owns it is asking for help to keep that from happening.

The owners of the Subway Inn say they got a call last month telling them building owner World-Wide Holdings Corp. wanted them out by Aug. 20.

World-Wide owns much of the block where the bar is, across the street from Bloomingdales. The real estate developer issued a statement saying it had always made it clear that redeveloping the area was the intended goal.



The Subway, with its bright neon sign and checkerboard floor, has long been a neighborhood hangout. Part of the bar's lore is that Marilyn Monroe would stop in when she was filming "The Seven Year Itch."
