NY’s Tavern on the Green restaurant items for sale

NEW YORK — The chandeliers and Tiffany stained glass from New York City’s landmark Tavern on the Green were being sold at an auction of just about everything in the bankrupt restaurant.

The three-day sale in its glitzy Crystal Room started Wednesday afternoon, with the elk-graced Central Park entrance sign first on the block. It fetched $5,000, surpassing the pre-auction estimate of $1,000 to $4,000.

Proceeds from the 20,000 items auctioned by Guernsey’s are going toward the restaurant’s $8 million debt.
