From an Anonymous commenter, regarding the Gramercy Pawn Broker:
This building that houses the Pawn shop is odd as it had the cheap hotel in it. Also funny that your image of the pawnbrokers sign is it self broken. In any event, I have had a Post Office Box at the Madison Square P.O. on that block for 40 years, I look into that pawn shop every time I pass by and have never ever—1. Have never seen a customer in there. 2. Have not seen anything in the window change in 15 years like the cheap Bongos and yes cassette player radio and other things no one in their right mind would wish for.
