From Metropolitan to Marcy: A Walking Tour of North Brooklyn's Bodegas Photos by Ian Stroud

813 Deli and Grocery

Intersection: Marcy Ave. and Monroe St.
Notable Sights Nearby: Celeste Beauty Salon

The sun-faded containers of laundry detergent and cleaning supplies in the store windows of bodegas seem more like relics than actual merchandise available for purchase. You've never seen anyone buy a bottle Trend or Final Touch; hell, you've never even seen that in someone's apartment. These products are only bought in a pinch, if at all. And why put them out front? Can you imagine someone saying, "Yeah man, I saw your Trend out front. Give me three bottles and tonight's Powerball"?
