Have any tips on where the owner might be or memories related to this shop? Please drop me a line.
Because my preliminary research had not turned up a business address for the shop, it took a little architectural detective work to figure out that it had once occupied the same space as Parkside Bicycles and what is now VIP Cleaners. It was the multi-paned windows on the building to the south, at this point I had gotten into the habit of looking up for such details, and then the parking garage in the building to the north that confirmed that I had indeed found the right space. But what about the owner? A little online research turned up the owner's name, Delphine Lameni, for which I then found several pieces of contact information: an address on Manhattan Avenue, a msn.com email address, and a Facebook page. I tried them all. All dead ends. Whatever happened to Delphine Lameni? I wonder if she started another business some place else? Or did she leave the city all together?
