Must be something in the air today, because I received two wonderful Old Tribeca artifacts. The first is from Lynn Rogoff: Her grandfather Issac Wagner had a butter and egg business, I Wagner, at 147 Reade; this flyer (?) is from the early 1940s. She also sent a PDF of “Tribeca’s Coming of Age,” an article she wrote in 1988 for the New York Press. It’s a wonderful snapshot in time: Worrying that what made the neighborhood special has disappeared, marveling about the improvements (such as the Food Emporium), describing new businesses that didn’t end up surviving.
And then J. emailed me a flyer that D. had found online and sent around their building, saying, “Maybe you can do something with this old flyer from some 70’s nightlife in The Spice Building 64 N. Moore St in Tribeca. I understand there are still some pink walls in our storage units in the basement!”
