How sad it'll be to see the last of those jaunty, bubbling glasses up on the sign. And below it, at the doorway, an elderly figure looking out, maybe with a Stetson & a fine array of medals, maybe with a cheery greeting & a sly taunt or two. With the OTB gone, and long before that, the old, grim Glasgow's deli, Timboo's was almost the last reminder of the block in the seventies & eighties, & it's hard to think of the corner any other way. More recently I've been thinking of this un-fancy stretch as the land between Dreamy's & Sleepy's (the ugly stores that poetically man the block's borders on the other side). I 've walked it so many thousands of times I do almost walk it in my sleep. I wonder what's next for this little world.
