Discunt Rice - A Drug Storefront Circa 1992

This awning was on the south side of East 4th Street a little bit west of Avenue of B. At the time I took the photo the storefront next door was occupied by a motorcycle repair shop called Cyclopedia. Discunt Rice morphed into another drug storefront awning: Joe's Records Shop. After that the location became a Hari Krishna food preparation and distribution space. Now it's a hair salon. A sign of the times, perhaps?

I remember this awning well. I have been telling people about it for over 15 years! A friend of mine got a couple shots of it as well, but yours is especially good. Thank you!
