Mesa De Development

On W. 28th Street in Manhattan, a construction outfit seems to have taken up makeshift residence in a former Spanish restaurant, called the Mesa De Espana. It's kind of funny, because the company has done nothing to alter the former restaurant's appearance. The signs and awnings are still there. It still has one of those typical whitewashed facades you see on Spanish eateries in this town, with ironwork over the small windows, and ceramic tiles placed here and there.

The restaurant closed only reception. I assume the construction guys have something to do with the huge development project going up next door.

i like these old Spanish restaurants around town. They seem to pop up on quiet little blocks and they all look the same, a remnant of different times.
