The Stuyvesant Curiosity Shop at 48 Third Avenue and 10th Street offered a cornucopia of goods: shotguns and rifles for $5, ammunition, diamonds, watches and jewelry, fishing rods & reels and tools. Appraised, bought and sold! The store was located under the Third Avenue El rail line, which was demolished in the 1950s.
Flanking the business were another pawn shop, Sig. Klein Fat Men's Shop at 52 Third Avenue (in the background above and below) and Sipmeier's Restaurant for ladies and gents.
