Old Florist Shops Show Themselves in Carroll Gardens & Brooklyn Heights
We love old signs, and we're especially amused to find not one, but two, old florist shop signs currently showing themselves in Carroll Gardens and Brooklyn Heights. A special GL correspondent shot and submitted both photos. The "RK LANE FLORI" sign on top is over Bagels by the Park on Smith Street. The one below is from a shop in Brooklyn Heights. Our correspondent writes:
Bagels by the Park's iron gate repair revealed the old Park Lane Florist sign from over 20 years ago, an old Carroll Gardens fixture at Smith & President Streets. Another florist sign blooms on Henry Street in Brooklyn Heights after a façade strip and board job reveals the quaint Flower Mart sign.We're sure that, like all old signs, except the ones that might be sold for decorative purposes, these will be covered up again soon.
