Neiderstein’s was a German restaurant on Metropolitan Avenue near 69th Street that began as a roadhouse on the Williamsburgh & Jamaica Turnpike in the mid-1840s. Over the years it developed into a popular restaurant especially with visitors and workers at Lutheran (All-Faiths) Cemetery, which is nearby. Neiderstein’s closed a few years ago; the building was razed and is currently the site of an Arby’s Roast Beef franchise.
The sign is hanging in the Enchanted Florist, Grand Avenue near Remsen Place.
