Gino's at Lexington Avenue near 60th Street on the Upper East Side was opened in 1945 by Gino Circiello. It specialized in moderately priced #Italian 🇮🇹food 🍝and was known for its tomato-red wallpaper printed with 314 leaping zebras. Ed Sullivan and Frank Sinatra often dined at Gino's aka Gino of Capri. Gino passed away in 2001 at age 89 and his long-time waiter, Salvatore Doria, took ownership of the restaurant along with the chef, Michele Miele. Sadly, they were forced to close the #restaurant in 2010 when their rent was increased by $8,000 a month to over $30,000 a month and health-care costs of their employees also increased. A cupcake cafe (Sprinkles Cupcakes) took its place. #storefront #disappearingfaceofnewyork #signgeeks #script #signcollective #type #typography #typevstime #dailytype

This place is lit!! 🔥 Situated in a strip mall between a laundromat and a liquor store, The Torch Room Lounge seemed like an innocuous little dive bar by day. I didn't realize that there had been a gang related murder right there in the parking lot a few years ago... seemed like a nice little suburban city but apparently the gang problem is serious! Look at the peril I put myself in just to shoot a sign!!! Don't think I'll be going back for the night shot!! 😱 #norwalk #norwalkca #losangeles #torchroom #royalsnappingartists #RSA_Main #rsa_mycity #rsa_streetview #vscocam #picoftheday #instagood #jj #the_visionaries #signofthetimes #somewheremagazine #SignCollective

Strand Television & Radio Service in Astoria, Queens. This TV 📺 sales and repair shop was named after the Strand Theatre which opened in 1941 just down the block on Broadway. The 1,228-seat theatre operated into the 1980s and in its last years played XXX movies. It was converted into a retail space in the 1990s. We love the window of this store which is jam-packed with televisions. We also love the #vintage #handpainted sign which looks like it had been longer at one point because only the letters RA for Radio remains. Photo from 2006appears in our book "Store Front: The Disappearing Face of New York". #storefront #signgeeks #type #typevstime #typography #signcollective #everything_signage #ig_signage #queenscapes #disappearingfaceofnewyork

Action. #typevstime

Jersey City is just across the river from Manhattan and while the waterfront and other areas have seen unbelievable development with a skyline that rivals any big city, some areas still retain a small town feel. Family owned Mastrolia Pharmacy on 7th Street, a classic "corner store" with this rusty crusty sign harkens back to a much simpler time... long before the war on drugs!! #jerseycity #just_newjersey #royalsnappingartists #RSA_Main #rsa_mycity #rsa_streetview #vscocam #picoftheday #instagood #jj #the_visionaries #signofthetimes #somewheremagazine #peelypaint #rustlord_communitythrive #grime_lords #SignCollective
