112th Street Area 2012/09/14 - Photo #21


The southwest corner of 110th Street and Broadway, a D'Agostino supermarket. In other times this was the site of an Orange Julius, a Daitch Shopwell, and a Grey's Papaya (and going back even farther, the Nemo movie theater, 1919-1963). Even after D'Agostino arrived, the old low-profile building on this corner that housed it was torn down and a new Columbia building erected, leaving D'Agostino homeless for a couple years. For a time both D'Agostino and West Side Market were closed and University Food Market on 115th Street had a virtual monopoly on grocery shopping.
