Kress 5-10-25 Cent Store

June 19th, 2013

I'm not sure what this building on 124th Street was originally, but the fading painted sign at the far end reads "Kress 5-10-25 Cent Store", identifying that section, I believe, as the back entrance of the old Kress store that fronted on 125th Street and that was the scene of the attempted shoplifting incident that set off the Harlem race riots of 1935.
