Inwood, Broadway Between Isham and 207th Streets

Here is the shell of Dick's Hardware Everything for the Home, now closed for some weeks.  It was here, looking like it was a founding store, when I moved here in 1995, and I found it to be a useful store indeed.  Yelp has two reviews:  the first one vividly describes the store while it was still here; the other laments its demise and asks "When, oh when,will this stretch of Broadway EVER get itself together?"  Lost City hasn't discovered its demise yet, but in June 2009 posted an appreciation for its nice handpainted sign.  Included is a comment from NYC Momma with a little history.

Places like this are going out of business all over the country. It's very sad.
