Ye Old Burger Shoppe, near Wall Street

touch ups to an old sign
Photo by myself on Water and Broad Streets, in the Wall Street area.

An artist touched up the front sign at Wall Street Burger Shoppe, while talking on his cell phone on Sunday evening.

Modeled after an old-fashioned eatery, Burger Shoppe offers variations on a burger, including a Mac 'n Cheese version (eight ounces of beef + macaroni + four cheeses), a Sub-Prime Melt Down (four ounces of beef + Swiss cheese + mushrooms + caramelized onions), and an Obama Burger (four ounces of beef + mozzarella cheese + marinara sauce + basil).

Mark, Rupert and I walked past the restaurant on Sunday afternoon. We didn't go inside, but judging from their beautiful website, the restaurant is classically outfitted with subway tile, wide plank wood floors and old fashioned light fixtures.

is that guy painting the sign? bending his neck to chat on cell? A hunchback?

Thanks everyone!

This was a super quick walk-by shot and I'm surprised how well it came out.

Ken yes! He is on the phone. What a nice job, to chat and paint.
