Ghost Signage Uncovered on Fifth Avenue

Vintage shop Odd Twin closed down after 4 1/2 years on Fifth Avenue and Degraw Street last month, and some of the shop's old awning has been taken down. Lo and behold, some hand-painted ghost signage has been lurking underneath.

The signs (which are on both corners) date from 1995, when Sea View, a video and game rental store, set up shop in the space at 164 5th. It was a real estate office before Odd Twin moved in. Currently there's only one video store left in the neighborhood, the Video Gallery on Seventh.

Go back further and it was Carlini's Refrigerators & Stoves in the 1980s.

From the 1920s till the 1970s it was a grocery/food market, for much of that time owned by a man named Teddy Feder.
