Who knows how long Bartunek Hardware has been on 23rd Avenue between 28th and 29th Streets in Astoria? A long time, judging by this plastic-lettered sign. As New Jersey DJ Don Tandler (The Record Handler) says, they don’t make them like this anymore and they don’t even try!
At first glance, it’s white and red, but a closer look reveals green, orange, blue and purple.
This is a quiet stretch in north Astoria so far ignored by its colonists. How long will it remain a secret?
