    Every time I look back at photos they seem so old, then I wonder what will today look like, twenty years from now?

    Thanks for the outstanding array of images. The boys at the hot dog cart brought back a flood of childhood memories. The guy behind the stuffed deli counter _ outstanding. Those delis and candy stores seemed to have everything anyone could possibly want behind those counters. How did they do it!

      Probably because they didn’t have vendors buying up all their shelf space. So there was no need to have, for example, a whole aisle devoted to 500 different variations of Crest toothpaste.


  3. Hello. Relatives of mine once owned a bialy bakery on Grand Street. They supplied bialys and other baked items to countless walk-in customers and stores.

    Great collection of images related to food in New York. They really capture a time and place. I particularly like Shoe Shine Boy and Corona Plaza. It’s great to see them beside each other.
