Nice and Necessary (Fourth Ave.)
I'm pretty sure I posted a picture of this store years ago. Back then I didn't know its name. How drawn I am to the place, with those wild shades of green, and (unseen here) the sparkling green tinsel around the entrance. What lust for a color!
The lack of a sign is a magnet, too. Online, we find scant information, but we do learn that Nice & Necessary (a winning tease of kindness & asperity) sells "herbal preparations." I've peered inside a few times & seen a stark waiting room, devoid of customers. Once a woman, standing way back in the shadowy interior, shot me a look of blank severity.
