Bruckner Bar & Grill is located in the Mott Haven section of the South #Bronx.

The #bar and grill is housed in a former elevator repair factory and is one of the pioneering small businesses taking part in the revitalization of the South Bronx or "SoBro" which began in the late 1990s. We love it's oversize #neonsign with the martini glass 🍸which is animated. Photo from 2010 and full text appears in our book "New York Nights".

Hornstein's Stationery Store in Harlem

This one-stop shop for toys, cards, office supplies πŸ““ ✂️, sporting goods ⚽️🏈 πŸ€, gifts, games, bicycles 🚲, and stationery has a great #vintage #handpainted sign. We are not sure how they fit all those items into this small #store but the window displays were jam packed. Photo from 2004 appears in our book "Store Front: The Disappearing Face of New York."
