New York has always been the city of
"USE TO BE" !!!!!!!!
This use to be a restaurant , I loved
This was where I use to live and now its an office bldg.
This is where the first store I ever bought my first something was, now, it's a parking lot.
ect ect ect
IF YOU CALL IT ---- The Lower East Side / Alphabet City / East Village, or LES its on fast forward. It's changin so fast I can't keep up with it.
I thought I saw a seven eleven the other day. I got off the bus , and bam, it was on Ave A and 12th street.
It felt very New Jersey , no offense to Jersey.
I have great Jersey customers but I always get those slurpies in New Jersey, not ave A
Egg creams and Katz's Delicatessen, www.katzsdelicatessen.com , are part of this neighborhood.
I don't know how this happened but,
Galleria J Antonio
47 ave A between east 3rd and east 4th street
is the last place you can actually walk in and get JUDAICA-in person, down here.
My last client said "JESSE-you have Judaica with SOUL , and -PANASH. "
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU.
I rescued some stuff from the 3rd floor attic of Ben Ari 11 AVE A -before the wrecking ball came in .
I cleaned, rewired, and brought out to daylight some things that make our department gleam.
It's a must see. or a must shop.
See ya soon.
