Worth stopping and eating at Jon's too! The address is supposed to be where Larry Fine was born, so the foods are named after the area and Stooges!

Three Stooges - Larry Fine Mural

The mural has been redone. This time Larry is playing a violin. It looks amazing.

Three Stooges - Larry Fine Mural

The Larry Fine Mural was removed in 2005 because it was painted on cheap plaster which, unfortunately, had started to peel away from the building and crumble. Funds are being collected to have the original artist re-do the mural.
