Old Signs of Havemeyer Street – Brooklyn
These vintage signs were spotted on a recent walk along Havemeyer Street in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. As far as I know all these businesses are still operating.
Incidentally, Havemeyer was the name of a 19th family that dealt in manufactured sugar products, a Williamsburg tradition largely forgotten, except for the massive Domino plant along the river.
