Odd how I had missed out on this one, since I’m a candy store aficionado (though I limit purchases to once or twice a year, lest I become a bigger man) but this Polish candy store had held down the fort at Meserole and Manhattan Avenues for several years and it was written up in books such as Nosh New York. Stodycze Wedel unfortunately closed in April 2013, but rents are so high that the space has not found a taker since. Gracenotes has a good review, as well as photos from inside the place.
What FNY Correspondent Gary Fonville noted, though, was that the awning sign letters are carved out of a block of wood! Not to many of these around. Eventually the space will be rented and this relic will disappear… but that’s why there’s Forgotten New York.
