Brooklyn Heights Shoe Master: Then & Now

The Brooklyn Heights Shoe Master at 100 Henry Street, inside the St. George Hotel 2/3 subway entrance, sure looks like it’s been in place for decades, but there’s little public info about its history, other than a few Yelp reviews giving it a thumbs up.

One factoid: A phone number in a lighted box above the store is no longer relevant: 852-2016. Has the joint been there long enough to have had a 212 exchange? (Current tele is 718-243-2355.) Oh, and… psych! The image above was digitally aged to look as if it’s from a bygone era. See the actual April 2012 image below the jump. *
