A Survivor in Downtown Brooklyn

Downtown Brooklyn is the Bermuda's Triangle of historic New York. Nothing survives here, not even Gage & Tollner. Everything of value goes down and is replaced by something of unspeakable ugliness. So the Souvlaki House on Lawrence Street near Fulton is a kind of a miracle. Thirty-eight years in the same location! Good prices, and a nice, old-fashioned lunch counter.
