Great shot of a snowy wet and dark winters day. I must have passed you by hundreds of times.

Here's a pic of what was there before the 5 Spot

I wrote to a friend of mine who traveled about the neighborhood years ago, he wrote back:

That was the 5 Spot as I knew it - but probably not the 5 Spot where
Ornette played, as they moved to this new location after Ornette played there, I
think - but that's nit picking - it was nice to see, & I prefer NYC in the
rain - at least in photographs - I hate rain in real life.

I believe the original Five Spot was a little to the south on Cooper Square/Third Avenue.

I love this photo!! I actually blog my grandma Maggie's diary, who lived on St. Mark's place in the 30s and it is wild to think this was in the future for her!
