One of our oldest and bestest retailers is Bowne & Co.,
Robert and Fela run the shop.
Robert showing us how to print on a beautiful old press.
Here he is, rolling the ink onto the form.
Ken pushing the platen into position to print.
The back of the shop is a treasure trove of vintage printing items,
where Robert does his beautiful letterpress work.
Fela is always gracious and charming! She showed us around
the seaport area, and even recommended a great noodle place
near our hotel. Thank you Fela!!!
One of the places in South Seaport that Fela recommended was
Jack's Coffee. A great coffee shop that sounds and smells like a
coffee shop should, when you walk in the door.
There's a great view of the Brooklyn Bridge from the site
of the old Fulton fish market, which is just around the
corner from Bowne & Co. and Jack's.
