Signs, Flatbush and Fifth Avenues, Brooklyn (2)

Fifth Avenue and Flatbush Avenue, Brooklyn.
The last one is a ghost sign that surfaced when a newer sign was removed from a now-vacant storefront. It has confused at least one Chowhounder. See also 01.07.


The gold leaf prime meats sign has tugged at me for at least nine months. Yes, because they don't do signs in gold leaf anymore and I can't imagine how far back we'd have to go to find a butcher at this spot. But also, I'm sure you've noticed, we haven't had a butcher in the neighborhood since Berkeley Meat Market closed. You have to go to Windsor Terrace for a butcher.

It used to be that I longed for Astoria because of sausage casings; but now much more mainstream meats are enough to make you whimsical.

Nice suite, sir.
