Eastern Parkway Dubrows, 1945

Reader Brian Merlis sent me this photo of Dubrow's on Eastern Parkway, circa about 1945. What a great find!

See also the watermarked B&W photo at http://www.oldnycphotos.com/crhts35.html which portrays the place in the context of Eastern Parkway. Let me observe that while the block corner was occupied by other establishments, Dubrow's had an entrance on Utica Avenue as well. Me? I'm a Baby Boomer who spent nearly all of his first decade living a short (i.e. not long) block from the corner of this Dubrow's.

Dubrow's sat in the eastern borderlands of Crown Heights, with Brownsville starting on the other side of Lincoln Terrace Park, where all the neighborhood schools I attended stood.
