Pic Of The Day #269

36 Elm Street was demolished yesterday. The building — most recently Villa del Sol — housed many previous businesses, including for a number of years Werner’s restaurant. It’s owned by David Waldman, who will build a retail/residential complex across the street behind Lux Bond & Green, in exchange for expanded parking next to Bedford Square. (Photo/Jen Berniker)

    I am pretty sure that way back in the early 1950’s there was a restaurant there called The Chanticleer. By 1966 it had moved to the Post Road. It was in the Motel. I should remember the name or Motel Chain but at the Moment it escapes me. I am really sad to see so many places bite the dust.
