A Good Sign: Coffee Shop

I adore the old sign attached to this hole-in-the-wall coffee shop on 21st Street near Sixth. It's almost bigger than the shop itself. The owners make good use of the space inside. There's a counter with five stools and a grill behind it. A fridge with sodas at the back and shelving to the left. I asked how long they had been there. The lady at the register said "Forever." Forever turns out to be 28 years. The way things are going in this City, 28-years-old might just turn out to be a championship tenure for an indy biz.
