Thought I’d go along for a progress walk with the locals. Apparently this project is way behind schedule.

Katz’s Wurst Fabric – LES, NYC

And physical artifacts weren’t the only antiques discovered at the project site. The clearance work has, however, afforded a unique ghost advertisement for old Katz’s Deli. Much of the lettering is faded, but “Katz’s Fabric” is still legible. It’s missing the word “Wurst,” though, the same language that appears on its Ludlow frontage. This was likely the exterior of the restaurant decades before the now-demolished row of retail was built. – Bowery Boogie – February 19, 2016
