Locate that Element!
Ok, so this feature, "It's Elemental," was supposed to be regular and somewhat interactive. I send out apologies for the lag time between posts. But we did have a few respondents, all answering correctly that the red "Restaurant" sign featured on November 26, was indeed a detail from the sign of the Broadway Restaurant pictured on this page in fuller context.
I was inspired to feature it when the NYT ran this piece about the Vanishing Diner Culture that I refuse to believe in. I can't bury one more special thing about this city, so the VDC needs to be rectified pronto stat.
In the article, the Times chose to focus on the neo-retro Metro while the downer-'n-dirtier retro-retro cousin just north and across the street is what I think of when I think of a diner.
Alas both are at risk in this VDC.
For playing along and successfully locating the sign, renewed hat tips go to Terence and Anthony. But Ozzie was new to the game and also answered right off the bat.
Now with all that said, please locate the element at the top of this page! If you do, I promise to tighten the elapsed time between postings.
Extra points if you can tell me the original name of the building at top.
