Ancient Grecian Corner Signage Revealed

Constuction is underway in the space that was last home to Greek diner Grecian Corner, as an outpost of David's Tea is slated to take over the space. The old signage came down yesterday, and lo and behold, most of the original wooden sign had been lurking behind the newer one this whole time, with the Greek-style lettering still plainly visible.

Anyone know how long this diner had been there for? It's reminiscent of the old Karavas sign on West 4th Street in the Village, which has been around for about 30 years.

Grecian Corner dates from 1984. Some of the worst diner food in this hemisphere passed through there. Would always be a "C" or "Grade Pending" place nowadays with frequent Board of Health closings.

Sounds like everyone is happy about the change. At least the Grecian Corner had some nice signage.
