'Hoffman's Cafeteria' - 1940 by Arch. Henry Hohauser.

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Jerry's Famous Deli (since 2002), was originally built as Hoffman's Cafeteria in 1940 by Henry Hohauser. After WWII, the building became a social hall for retirees of Polish descent and was renamed the Warsaw Ballroom. For much of the late twentieth century,it was a gay nightclub. Nice façade, but any place with the name Famous over the entrance and open 24 hours has to give you a warning! I only walked in, the place is huge and probably hard to keep clean, because it was quite dirty. Big menu too, way to big to have anything fresh! They are only lucky to be in a perfect location, otherwise they could not be around anymore! I doubt any locals eat there. I walked out without ordering anything! I did eat at David’s Cuban Cafe, nothing to write about, but edible and ½ price of Jerry’s!

Described somewhere on www., as "the bow of a tugboat cutting through the waves. The nautical imagery continues with a central 'smokestack,' flagpoles and cutout portholes on the parapet"

Here it would more likely be a Theatre on Cinema with that stylizing but looks good Like

There were few cinemas in the neighbourhood, but I had to get back on the beach! Too much culture is not good for your health! ;-)
