What You See in Sunset Park: Three on 5th Avenue

Tony's, originally uploaded by mysteryship.

This photo is excellent in every way. (Thanks to mysteryship for uploading it to the BViB photo pool!) Not only does it feature Tony's Barber Shop (super-friendly place), but it shows the reflections of International Restaurant and Tacos Nuevo Mexico in its windows.

That's a lot of what you need to know about the changes on 5th Avenue: Tony's has been there for over 40 years, then you've got International, which is Dominican (I highly recommend the queso frito con yucca), and Tacos Nuevo Mexico (with a decent mole) rounds out the trio.

Not a bad collection if you want to know a little about Sunset Park's metamorphoses over the years.
