Another mom and pops bites the dust.
I was walking and noticed the sign posted in the window of Jay’s Laundromat. Located on Ave U between East 22. And East 23. I remember before Jay’s it was Ng’s laundromat and he was in business way before 1980.
What’s gonna be next ? Another nail salon ? 99 cent store ? Japanese restaurant ? I’m aactually hopin a Starbucks would pop up. That’ll really put us on the map as up and coming.
