Delancey & Orchard [NW Corner] (August 2013)

Girls walk by Cohen's Fashion Optical on the Lower East Side. The sign for S Beckenstein on Orchard Street can be seen in the background. This fabric emporium was launched here in 1910 by a Polish immigrant pushcart peddler. The business has since moved to 32 West 20th Street in Chelsea / Flatiron.              CLICK TO ENLARGE
