Across the street from the Capron Lofts is the old V.H. Lang Trophies building. The trophy shop closed its doors last month (May) as the owners sought retirement, and it has been rumored that the building was recently sold to an unknown investor. Can you imagine lofts or retail space in this tired-looking historic structure? Will you be the change maker in this city to make that happen? – Signs of life: the next “HOT” Neighborhood?

Frank -

My daughter Allison and I recently joined you for the Open House New York walking tour of the fading ads of Tribeca, and we had a great time (despite the rainy weather). I don’t know if your interest extends all the way to Rochester, but I was there last week, and saw the attached fading ad from my hotel room in the Hyatt Regency. It appears to say “Darling Shop Ladies Childrens Apparel.” It’s near the corner of Main and Stone Streets in the middle of downtown Rochester.

Allison and I now regularly send each other pictures of fading ads that we happen upon. Thanks for helping to spark an interest that we can enjoy together.

Larry Tenenbaum – October 29, 2012

Thank you Larry! I’m glad you had a good time. Thank you for the pic. Give my regards to Allison and looking forward to your next pic! Best, Frank
