Bar closing time in NYC, c. 1970

This is just such a little thing, but I want to get it right. What time did bars close in New York City around 1970? I found through Googling that now it's 4am, but was that the case then? I tried searching the archives of the NYT for the few years around 1970 and found a few stories that (from the snippet I could see without paying) seem to suggest it was 3am, but also that there were after-hours clubs and the like. Basically my question is if someone wanted a drink in the wee hours of the morning, at what time would they be out of luck?
