Happy Thanksgiving to all who celebrate it.

[Today 223 and 225 Fulton Street are ghosts in a pedestrian area between One World Trade Center and the 9/11 Memorial North Pool. But 309 Madison Avenue is fresh&co, offering a “blended nut & nut-free and gluten-free & gluten environment.”]

Yep. Every address says to me, “Try Google Maps.” I was hoping to find the stores in the archive of 1940 NYC real-estate photos, but no luck. Those exact addresses are missing, but other photos suggest that the stores were gone by then.
