Old Deli Sign Uncovered on Upper Broadway


A reader sent to me this photo of a lovely old Delicatessen sign that was uncovered during construction on a storefront at Broadway and 103rd. Can't make out the first word—that is, the name of the place. Lovely font on the sign.

Glad you wrote this up. I was going to send you my pictures of it, but hadn't gotten around to it...

It is quite the excellent sign.

I think it says 'Blades'.

I love the concept of this blog. I am a history nerd, and the pursuit of finding little secrets from the past in the city is awesome. I created a site (TheGildedButler.com) that you might be interested in. I write and photograph the old estates in NJ, NY, and other places that many of NYC's richest owned in the 1800-1920s.
