Goodbye Frankie & Johnnie

 A former speakeasy in the theater district, Frankie & Johnnie steakhouse was quintessential old school New York. The walls were covered in the publicity photos of the many stars who dined their through the years. Jack Klugman, Tony Randall, Alan King, Nanette Fabray, and many, many more. As the tourists walk by the old spot on their way to a show or MacDonalds or Olive Garden, another little piece of genuine NYC history is dead.

The sign reads 1920's something. What an astounding business record. Nice that you captured the culture of this era with your photos. -- barbara
