Monday's parting archival shot

Facebook reminded me of this grainy photo posted on the evening of Aug. 30, 2013.

I took this on the second-to-last night of the old Odessa, 117 Avenue A between Seventh Street and St. Mark's Place. This space dated to the mid-1960s. 

The Odessa Restaurant next door (circa 1995) remained open until July 2020. Superiority Burger is taking over that space.

I love that kooky photo and miss the old Odessa! Thanks for the memory.

I loved the red glitter ceiling, so very 60s.

@2:27 - thank you for reminding me of the red glitter ceiling! I caught a bit of it in this photo from 2013:

I miss spending my Saturday evenings there - chicken parmesan and broccoli for dinner and always fun music and company.
