A Perfect Storefront: Fame Discount Liquors

Fame Discount Liquors on 520 Metropolitan Avenue in Williamsburg is actually just a couple blocks down from the first subject of this new Perfect Storefront feature. Why perfect? Well, corners stores always have an edge on looks if they use the space wisely. And Fame does, from the bold red lettering on either street side (the smaller, but equally bold, blue "Lotto" makes for a nice complement) to the door set at a diagonal to the various-sized window displays. The hovering fire escape adds a gritty, urban edge to the picture. The whole store just thrusts itself into your line of sight, and you're not at all sorry it did.
