31 North Broadway
Downtown Heritage Tour
As early as 1868, Broadway was becoming an important commercial strip. By then, 31 North Broadway had been converted to a butcher shop, operated by Charles Weinang. The Weinang family also lived in the building. Over time many businesses have set up shop at this address, including May & Jungels Shoes (1895), Bowman's Delicatessen (1929), and the Mural Lounge (1955). The building was renovated in 1999 to resemble its 1912 appearance, as seen in the above photo. (Marker Number 17.)
