Thread: The Birth of El Eggo, Canal Street and York Street shop?

  1. #1

    Default The Birth of El Eggo, Canal Street and York Street shop?

    There was (in the middle-seventies) a shop on that odd little corner of Sixth Avenue, between Canal Street and York Street, with a pseudo-surrrealist fresco painted on the façade, entitled The Birth of El Eggo. There was a large apothecary's balance displayed in the window, but there was no sign of activity and no furnishings, so that the shop must have housed a studio. There were several grotesque faces lying on the bare boards inside, obviously rescued from a demolished house or building. If anyone remembers this, or has any idea what the shop was, or what the enigmatic fresco alluded to?
