J. Yormark Survives

Some months ago, whatever had once occupied the spot next to Left Bank Books on 8th Avenue near Jane Street had a piece of its facade torn off to reveal a lovely piece of glass signage.

J. YORMARK SHOES it read in stained glass. GVSHP did a little digging--they found a bit, but it seems there is not much to be found on this little shoe store of the past.

I worried how the new occupants of the spot would treat the un-vanished sign. In February, a barber shop moved in.

They kept the sign.

The barbershop is called Igor's "Be Good" Barber Shop. It sounds like Igor of the Little Tony & Igor Be Good barber shop has branched out on his own.

Wow that's cool that they kept the sign. Any idea how far back this glass sign dates or where it was made?
