Picture Postcard: The Ashamed Deli

Poor little deli. Seems almost ashamed to be a deli. That must be why it’s out of business. If only the little deli had some pride, it might be in business today.

But seriously, what happened on that awning? What’s with the little word “deli” in parentheses? I’ve looked closely, it’s not too far from me in Brooklyn. That’s not an addition, the word didn’t cover up or replace something else. It was made that way. But why? I have no idea.

    That is very strange. It does seem like they were ashamed to be called a Deli for some reason.

      The place had been there for years but I never went in. It was just one of those stores I drove by on my way to the highway. Other than the awning it looked like any other store from the outside.
