Sammy’s Roumanian Finally Visible for the First Time in 6 Years
Talk about blinded by the light. A solid six years held hostage by scaffolding and netting, the northwest corner of Chrystie and Delancey Streets is finally liberated. The inhibitor was removed from the restored facade earlier this week.
The heavy-duty materials were first installed at 157 Chrystie back in the summer of 2010, and later proved a permanent addition to the structure. Or, so we thought. The job is done, for real, and the exterior masonry rehabilitated.
And now the Sammy’s Roumanian is again visible. In full sight. Yes, it’s been a long and dark half-decade here. Surely the ground-level businesses are happy about this. Maybe the stench of piss and feces will even subside.
