Day 968

99 years on this block

August 24th, 2014

After finishing my walk in Staten Island and heading to Brooklyn, I noticed a cool engraving on this building at Grand and Waterbury Streets that I had missed when I previously walked by.

Sounds like F.H. Von Damm started as a grocery store before becoming an animal feed and fertilizer wholesaler. And the business seems to have lasted well over 99 years at this location.
