tip: J&S imports on broadway just above union square has completed their move upstairs, to the 4th floor. they hopefully won't vanish soon, as they own the building (according to a Times article), but the wonderful sign is gone. imports from "africa, haiti and spain" ... I always loved how broad "africa" and oddly specific "spain" were joined in this sign.
