Sunday afternoon, while the hordes were likely occupied with Mothers Day commitments and/or the Festival of Ideas to the north, a colorful commercial mural was painted on a seemingly-forgotten wall Ludlow Street wall. And it’s all about Bruce Cost-branded ginger ale, dubbed Fresh Ginger. The mural wraps around the corner of the building and onto Canal.

As evidenced by the fading signage, 39 Canal Street was the birthplace of Twin Marquis Inc., a company specializing in OU-certified kosher noodles and wrappers. It was founded here in 1989 by Tang brothers Joseph and Terry, but recently unveiled an 80,000 square-foot manufacturing facility in Williamsburg.  This outpost remains a distribution center for the brand.
