Bleecker Street west of Sixth Avenue has gone upscale over the past decade.
But I wonder how many of the boutique shoppers and cupcake eaters who now crowd this meandering old road notice the old street signage carved into building corners.
This one is on the southeast corner at West 10th Street, above a designer jeans store housed in a classic city six-story tenement.
Across the street is another low-rise brick apartment building. The carving appears on the corner, above Village Apothecary. Is street abbreviated “str”?
You really have to squint to see this next one, two corners away on Perry Street. It’s showing its age on a five-story walkup.
