MANHATTAN (PIX11) -- Marcello Salinas started working at the Subway Inn in 1973, he and his wife bought the bar 8 years ago, a bar that stood for 77 years on 60th street and Lexington Avenue in Manhattan.
"To open this place, man, I spent all that I have, all that I have," said Marcello Salinas.
They thought they had to close last year, but with support from the community they were able to find a new home, on 60th street and 2nd Avenue.
Steven Salinas showed PIX11 around.
Some of the former booth material is here, the hard hats, and there is also a picture of Marilyn Monroe.
The Salinas family expressed their gratitude for the support that they have received from fans from all over.
This iconic bar on the East Side was a favorite for stars like Marilyn Monroe and Tony Bennett.
There is the still the table with decades of gum underneath, the "Subway Inn" sign, and other items. A neon sign they hope burns outside brightly for many years to come.
