New York 1965 - 1967. Part Three

Living as we did just off Union Square above the Village, we often crisscrossed the square, notable mainly for its low end storefronts and grungy subway station. In the sixties it was less than chic, although Andy Warhol's Factory and Max's Kansas City made their appearance there.
But its main occupant at the time was S. Klein, a fading discount emporium on the east side of the square with a garish front.  Eventually it closed and the boarded up front was a sorry sight.
I could not resist painting it.
