After months of research and outreach our report is now available on the National Park Service website. The bar, which was listed just a day before the Sip-In’s 50th anniversary, is now the eighth site in the country listed on the National Register for its significance to LGBT history.
In New York City, Julius’ is the third LGBT-specific site to be added to the National Register. The other two are the recently-listed Bayard Rustin Residence in Chelsea and the Stonewall Inn in Greenwich Village, which was listed in 1999. Stonewall is still the only LGBT-specific site in the city to be named a National Historic Landmark.
The nomination of Julius’ also fulfills part of our mission to add more LGBT-specific sites to the National Register. Stay tuned for our next nomination!
