A year and a half ago I wrote about a Starbucks on Columbus Circle and the building's history before the coffee giant came along.
Six months later, one Erika Abelman Zim noticed my post and wrote "The was originally an old fashioned pharmacy/ luncheonette (soda fountain stools and all). It was called Columbus Circle Pharmacy. My dad owned it in the 1960's until Starbucks took it over approximately 10 years ago."
The history continues. Today I received a link to a picture of the old luncheonette. Such a wonderful shot. I love the proper woman just exiting the pharmacy, as well as the one lingering in the doorway. You can see a row of fountain stools to the right of the man inside who's just walking toward the door. Look to the right and see the United Cigars shop next door, and a liquor store next to that.
Check out the great new site that the picture came from, Aaron Signs. I wish I was the scion of an old sign company!
