The city becomes increasingly cluttered with chain stores and their uniform storefronts with each passing year. But plenty of shops with retro signs remain, giving us glimpses of a bygone New York City and lending classic touches to their neighborhoods.
Here are 22 retro signs and storefronts, from the Hotel Chelsea in Manhattan to Antonio’s Pizzeria in Brooklyn. The photos are drawn from the collection of Rolando Pujol, who chronicles vintage Americana in New York and across the country. See more on his Instagram account: @rolandopujol.
