☞ REVIVE: The Marquee at 313-315 West 125th

The sidewalk shed finally went down at the commercial building being restored at 313-315 West 125th Street and the new ground floor storefront appears to be bringing back the original marquee.  Walking by the site just west of St. Nicholas Avenue this past weekend, we noticed that an even more accurate restoration was at hand since the suspended marquee or awning seems to be now in place.  It is unclear where this came from but the structure over the main entrance reminds us of the one that used to be over at Blumstein's on 125th Street about a century ago: LINK
