☞ BESPOKE: Awnings

From our post yesterday, we marveled at Perk's use of custom domed awnings lending a distinct, classic feel to the brownstone store front that the local bar inhabits. Having also walked by this South Harlem institution yesterday, we noticed some much needed plaster repair work being done to patch up some peeling paint. Upon returning in the next couple of hours, all the awnings had been dismantled and laying on the sidewalk. The contractor relayed that they were being permanently removed. What was so great about them was the repetition and the custom stripes and lettering around the edges. Let's hope something more interesting comes up since the facade would be nondescript otherwise. See the previous post for more information on Perk's: LINK
