4th & Broadway [SW Corner] (1960s & 2012)


Back in the day, L'elite Coffee Shop occupied this Greenwich Village corner... And the coffee shop sported an awesome "Enjoy Tab" Cola signage... As trucks from New Deal Delivery Service and Emery Air Freight idled out in the street... And a loft was for sale on the 2nd floor. I wonder who eventually bought that loft... A family? A winner? A loser? An average Joe? How much did it cost? Nostalgia makes all this stuff seem so much cooler than a yellow hybrid taxi idling in front of a Duane Reade pharmacy.       CLICK TO ENLARGE

I don't recall the source of this "then" photo
