old P&G


In this new year, a look back at one of 2009's great losses, the classic P&G Cafe on Columbus near 72nd. An aging neon beauty since WW2, P&G couldn't escape rising rents. Someone still has the neon, I know not who....

Another sad lament... probably turn it into a Walgreens! Yuk!

I love neon!

Crimony! In this economy, you'd think the landlords would leave the rents alone! Greed has no limits...

«Louis» is happy to read the neon was saved.

Another one bites the dust. When will they stop, KM?

I love the soft purplish glow emanating from the window onto the sidewalk.

Ah, change. Looks like another source of cigars is no more.

Have you seen what's there now? A yuppified sweet shop

I hope whoever has the sign will take care of it but I wish it had managed to stay wrapped around the building.

Rob said...

A shame they couldn't hang on. I wonder now how long this spot will remain empty.

I like change and am thankful it includes politicians.

Who was P and who was G?

I went there a handful of times when living on the UWS. The neon signage was impossible to ignore. Just awesome.

Now that I look at it again, I really like that little old lady in the foreground.
