WASHINGTON HEIGHTS, Manhattan (WABC) -- A beloved Upper Manhattan bar facing closure will now remain open.
Earlier this week, Coogan's in Washington Heights was going to close because of a rent increase. In response, more than 15 thousand people signed a petition for a new lease that will save the local landmark.
Among the supporters was Lin-Manuel Miranda.
Coogan's has been open since 1985.
