One of my favorite buildings in Woodside, at Laurel Hill Boulevard and 65th Place, is this frame house, with a deli on the ground floor. This type sign, with vinyl letters, was distributed to many mom and pops by the Coca Cola Company; Coke ads are invariably displayed in either side.

Beats the vinyl awnings that have largely taken over the past couple of decades.

    Yes, it’s a nice sign, but how well does it go with the bulletproof glass inside the store that protects the guy at the cash register? (Or at least there was bp glass inside when I stopped by there years ago.)

    I grew up 2 blocks away. Looks very much the same as it did in the 60’s and 70’s .

    I’d like to see an entire post on this site dedicated to those old Coca-Cola signs.

    These homes converted to stores on otherwise residentially zoned blocks are usually ‘grandfathered’ under the 1916 or 1961 zoning laws. Similar stores in Staten Island along parts of Lincoln Avenue near the Grant City SI Railway station.
