1964: Flamenco at Club 169 on Allen Street, which, as described by The Times, was a “onetime speakeasy on the lower East Side,” and which was on a mission to combat “juvenile delinquency,” limiting its membership to those from ages 16 to 21. “The hardest drink in the house,” read a caption to another photo, “is a 15-cent root beer.” Photo: Sam Falk/The New York Times
