Last July I did a post titled The grocery stores of St. James Place. I've always liked Peter's grocery at 25 Madison St. on the corner of St. James Place down on the outskirts of Chinatown and the LES. And for good reasons. You don't see many old-school storefronts like this anymore.
A great sign.
And I love the corner angle.
Unfortunately, when I went by the other day, Peter's was gone. I'm not sure how long ago it disappeared.
Peter's is featured in "Storefront: The Disappearing Face of New York," by James and Karla Murray. Peter's was owned by Peter Migliorini, who took over the business from his father (also named Peter).
Knickbocker Village has a post on Peter's.
So what will become of this unique space?
