Signs signs


P. J. Clarke's coming to World Financial Center marina this summer. As I recall, the place that was there before was called Moran's, but I don't think it was related to the one up on 10th in the teens. I ate there once, but only had a chef salad.

94 Greenwich now has a sign, Cafe Bravo. I don't know, does that sound like another deli? I'm clinging to the belief that it'll be a cafe as in coffee house, not cafe as in steam tables.

George's sign going up. Not a bad one. "established 1950" It's not the old one though. I wish I had a photo, but the old one was a huge orange neon job that wrapped around the corner. "George's and Sons Luncheonette" I think, with something like "sandwiches" and "orange juice" written smaller. I think the sign survived 9/11, but there was a bad storm not long afterward with high winds that broke the neon.

UPDATE: Huge thanks to the commenter who left this link showing the orginal George & Sons sign. Wonderful.

You can see a picture of the original George's on the New York Public Library digital database, which is an incredibly cool place to find local images. I found this one by simply doing a search for "Rector" and "Trinity":

I really hope at least one of these places will be a decent place to eat at. I really wish we had more restaurant options downtown. Hard to find anything good, besides Southwest NY and maybe Giovanni's Atrium.

Wow, that is really great! Thanks for the tip. I added a photo from 1929 to my earlier entry about 94 Greenwich Street too.
