Dingy and derelict store signs in Brooklyn

October 18, 2010

More shabby than chic, these vintage signs do have character.

Kelly’s Tavern in Bay Ridge makes a cameo appearance in Saturday Night Fever. (Tony and Stephanie walk past it after leaving a coffee shop.)

Maiman’s Pharmacy, off Eastern Parkway in Crown Heights, has an enchanting neon sign you’ll never find above a Duane Reade or Rite-Aid.

Hardware stores around the city tend to have great old signs, like Weinstein’s on Kingston Avenue in Crown Heights.

There’s something a little creepy about this bar in Sunset Park. Darkened windows, no-frills signage . . . barhopping frat boys from Manhattan may be viewed with suspicion.
