There's an old live poultry market over on Amsterdam Avenue that's been in the business since the 1930's but we didn't realize that there was another such establishment over in East Harlem. Just west of Second Avenue, the small shop at 248 East 117th Street first caught our eye because of the old hand painted signage and miniature marquee. Upon closer inspection, we found that live chickens were indeed sold on site and so there are definitely two of such poultry shops in Harlem.
