A recently vacated storefront at the corner of 147th Street and Broadway had some severely modern signage removed in the past week and a nice vintage sign has now been revealed. This location was the Jocelyn liquor store but apparently it was George's several decades ago. Many establishments that are opening downtown have kept the original vintage signs such as this one on their storefronts even though the business have switched over. This would be a great spot for a diner or even a wine bar if the new owners could replicate a retro aesthetic within the interior. Does anyone have details on what will happen to the space or if it is available?
