wait...it looks like that bakery may still be open. I better get down there before it closes.I love the blue color.
nope, gertels is closed...:(
I was a tad nervous about enlarging a few of these but I've gotta run. Have an appointment for a spa treatment at Helen's in a few!V
An interesting shop. I think an old warehouse. Have a photo realism.
There was a store on Rivington Street, I think it was, all he sold was various nuts, pistacho, cashews, pecans, etc. And he didn't give a hoot if you ate a handful while you browsed. Bet you that hasn't been there in years.
The Graffiti door is my favorite - maybe there's a painting in it...(will ask you permssion in that case:) )
I love the art decco door, even with the graffiti.
Shame all these nice shops etc are no more :(
Isn't it the asolutely worst thing we when try to sterilze life into this slick, unemcumbered thing? I'd rather your ruins. Then we know someone passed this way.
Actually, only the first business has closed!
I like coyotefe's sentiments!
idea hosiery has the coolest sign.
oooh aaaahhhhh!!!!! wonderfulI like coyotefe's sentiments too!!!
#151 looks like some creative people have stopped by ... and the bakery needs new signage but I bet they dont want to make their neighbors feel bad
All these are so interesting. I love the Art Deco doorway with the glass blocks. I wonder why the owners don't clean off the grafitti? Is it an apartment building?
I've been meaning to tell you about this book I saw at Barnes and Noble the other day:Store Front: The Disappearing Face of New York by James T. Murray
