Henry Street Deli in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn.

We took this photo in 2003, at a time when people still purchased newspapers 🗞daily as you can see from the large stacks of various newspapers lined up on the yellow rack outside the shop. You didn’t even have to go inside if you were only buying a paper 📰, you could simply put your coins on the ledge of the walk-up window. We miss this aspect as we often would flip through the paper before committing to buying a copy. These days so few newspapers are sold at delis and newsstands (one owner told us that he is lucky if he sells 6 or 7 copies of the Sunday New York Times vs. in the 1990s when he sold hundreds of copies in just a few hours in the morning).
