Anyway, yesterday, Bayou shared the photo of the ghost signage for "Appetizers" on what was most recently New Herbal World.
As a follow-up, EVG regular Edmund John Dunn, who grew up nearby with his family, shared the following photo... of his brother (photoshopped to protect his privacy!) from the early 1960s... the photographer is looking to the east, with the corner of Avenue A visible in the background... as well as the ConEd plant in the distance ...
The previous post on the ghost signage has a little more history about the place.
Meanwhile, back to that top photo, workers dispensed with the ghost signage in combining the storefronts — New Herbal World and Lower East Side Coffee Shop for the next tenant: Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen.
