PJ Clarke's at Third & 55th

a nameless yeast posted a 1950s film screen cap. I went looking to see what that location would look like today.


PJ Clarke's has been in business for 125 years.

"... city records date the building from 1868, although the present owners claim 1864."

The Third Avenue El used to rattle past.

The hi-rise behind it went up in 1971; designed by Skidmore Owings & Merrill.
