Lost City: Albany Edition: K.W. Savory


K.W. Savory deli on James Street in downtown Albany has been closed since 2002, at least, but the mint-green neon sign is still there, and it has to count as one of my all-time favorites. The color, first of all, is unusual. So is the name, which I imagine is made up and is not someone's name. The purposefully misspelled "Redi Lunches" is intriguing, as it the enticement of "Homemade Ice Cream." Finally, the swooping tail on the "Y."
