199 Fifth

The Jany's Meat Market sign at this location is on top of an earlier one, presumably San Jose's, which was there before Jany's.  Maybe Jany's has some fresh meat tucked away at the back, but when you go in it looks pretty much like a regular grocery/deli. This little cow though, peering out from under a contractor's sign, is evidence of a meatier past.  I asked the guy behind the counter about the older sign, but he told me he was from Manhattan & knew nothing about it.  Fleisher's,the up-scale butcher business from upstate Kingston (originally founded in Kensington, Brooklyn) is about to set up on this block very soon.

Great sentence, love that cow photo!
