Little change from the 1930's

We have dined at two restaurants on Mott Street and there is little change even today much is the same. My mother used to get Mah Jongg sets here and would shop at several stores. Often the same owner would have different store fronts as you would see the same person in two different stores.


Looking north from just above the foot of Mott St. to the bend at Pell St. Gratifying to see how much is still there.

Those are the prettiest fire escapes I've seen.
