On the Right Spot

There are many absurdities and inaccuracies in this “untapped cities” blog post, http://untappedcities.com/newyork/2012/08/27/murder-is-my-business-a-weegee-walk/

Screen shot from “untapped cites” blog.
Mud, Sweat & Tears Pottery is at 654 10th Avenue, New York, NY 10036


Screen shot of 1940 phone book (from NYPL).
Spot Bar & Grill is at 651 10th Ave.

This is the scene today:

The right spot.
