Eagle’s Nest: New York Gay Leather Landmark Renovated


Towleroad reader Duke Sherman sent us some photos to let us know that the space which used to house NYC legendary leather bar The Eagle, seen above at its original location at 11th Ave. and 21st street back in the day, is under renovation.


Above, the property in Google's most recent "street view" capture. 

Below, Sherman's pics. He writes: "I walked by the old Eagle this weekend and they were hauling out the entire interior… something is going to arise from the ashes. This location was before my time, the pix are pretty crappy, but perhaps someone can make something of this. One of those NYC time capsules that opens up every so often, an homage to a different time."


A history of The Eagle here.
