Inside You Time Moves, But Ghosts Dont Fade On York Avenue

Robert Pryor 1582 York Ave @ 1948

Last night I had a delicious dinner in Mumtaz a new Indian restaurant at 1582 York Avenue. The restaurant is directly under the apartment where my father's mother lived from 1932 to 1988 with my Dad, uncle and grandfather. It was odd coming home with no one home, but I felt ghosts swooping around the space

It was my first time in the store in 35 years; I remember being there 52 years ago when I was 5 years old.

On the ground floor of my grandmother’s building, 1582 York Avenue, were two storefronts. To the left was Parker's Grocery.
