A stretch of France in New York

A French corner in NY

How strange, I found this little bit of france, with all the important details, like the 'tabac' sign, the names, style...in New York, it's quite distcrete really. And the spookiest of all is that just around the corner, there is a huge Newcastle Brown ale sign. it was like a micro jump in my own world, between France and Britain...

it's funny because I walk by that block all the time, and I know those places, but its not until you back up across the street like you obviously did that it becomes so striking.

That's part of the beauty of NYC--around every corner is a brand new discovery!

It looks so familiar. I'm trying to figure out where that is but am drawing blanks.
