Joe’s Locksmith πŸ”, East Village, NYC

We fell in love with this #locksmith shop’s #handpainted signage when we first began photographing #storefronts in the late 1990s. Sadly this shop along with its corner neighbor, Mars Bar, was forced to close to make way for a new luxury rental tower building. Since 2014 there has been a TD bank on the new building’s ground floor (taking up the space of both the former Mars Bar located at the corner and the site of this locksmith). It breaks our heart to see that glass and steel bank every time we walk down Second Avenue towards Houston Street.
