The Moulin Rouge in Paris launched in 1889, just three years after our ClockTower.
600,000 annual visitors consume almost a quarter of a million bottles of good champagne each year, making it the #1 “dinner and a show” venue in the world.
Not to be outdone, our Bronx has its own version.
It’s right up the hill from Yankee Stadium.
It’s a cuchifrito shop.
With fewer visitors.
And no champagne.
Just the windmill.
Ah well. ;-)
