Bar tabac..

A place where you can buy newspapers with a tobacco sign...
A French cafe with a "terrasse" and an awning...
you can see that at every corner in Paris...
But , those fire escapes Are a New York City trademark...
and this Cafe with the Tabac sign is a slice of France in NY !!!
This is a popular hang out for the young French crowd.
They can watch soccer games and later at night are allowed to dance.

Un cafe avec une enseigne Tabac/journaux...
Rien de bien original me direz-vous, on en trouve a tous les coins de rue!
Mais ces escaliers exterieurs eux sont bien la preuve
que cette photo a ete prise a New York...
Ce cafe est un endroit bien connu de la jeunesse Franco Americaine.
Pour avoir acces a un bar ou un club ,aux Etats Unis,
il faut avoir 21 ans, et ce cafe ,
outre les Matchs de foot retransmis en direct
permet a ces jeunes , certains soirs s'ils sont "sages"!!
de pousser les tables et de pouvoir danser.

Un café de "bougnats " à New York!!
Mais pas étonnant, il y a eu tant d'immigrés là bas.

superbe ce "café charbon" on peut même faire son loto ;o). Il doit y avoir une bonne ambiance les soirs de match de foot. j'espere que c'est tenu par des français

On se croirait chez nous, c'est original...

Super! Oui, j'ai aussi vu qu'on peut même jouer au loto! ... et acheter des gauloises sans filtre? :-)

Thanks for your visit to my blog Brookville Daily Photo this morning. I hope you enjoyed my post today showing the baby rabbit eating the hibiscus flower.

I am now taking a diminishing dose of steroids for my Rheumatoid Arthritis pain and it works. I am pain free. I believe the chemotherapy drug is spelled "Methotrexate" that is used to treat a lot of things from cancer to arthritis and it has side effects that are troubling. So I need to talk to my doctor about it before I take it. Just missing a dose can be a real nightmare.

Anyway, I wanted you to know I stopped-in to repay your visit and comment with mine.

I enjoyed reading your blog post for today about the tobacco sign and I thought your photography was excellent.

I don't know if you like to read or not but if you do this place is amazing.

I just got my first shipment of used books from Strand's bookstore in New York City, yesterday. They have 18 miles of used books. Think about that. Anyway, they got here and I am totally happy with those I chose to read. I had to start out by just choosing a category, like photography, and go from there. I don't know how in the world they can keep track of so many books. You must know about it but it was so new to me and I was so impressed with their service that I thought I would spread the word around the world.

Look up Strand bookstore or copy and paste the URL here: http://www.strandbooks.com/app/www/p/home/

J'adore cette photo. Elle va "circuler" de regard en regard autour de moi. C'est typiquement insolite! Je me demande comme Olivier, si les patrons sont français. Si tu y retournes, Marie Noyale, glisse y une oreille! Et fais nous savoir si on y parle le français.
Merci pour cette découverte.

Ancien proverbe italien:
”Bar, Bacco (le dieu du vin), Tabac et Vénus (la femme), ils transforment l'homme (aussi ce Franco-italienne-Americaine), en cendre..."
est-ce que tu le savais?

Ah ! Une carotte à New-York !
Comme tu le dis, heureusement que l'on voit les escaliers extérieurs, sinon, comme dirait ma nièce, on se croirait chez nous, surtout avec le nom bien français du café.

delphinium June 25, 2008 at 12:16 PM  

ah on regarde aussi le foot par chez vous? j'espère que tout va bien pour vous. Je vous embrasse.

Tu t'en es bien tirée avec l'angle de prise de vue de cette photo : j'ai tenté en vain de prendre ces escaliers de secours -que j'adore et qu'on trouve aussi à SF- : Problème d'étroitesse de rue en général et d'exposition trop contrastée.
Là, tu as fait d'une pierre deux coups et la lumière met bien les reliefs en valeur (enseignes et escaliers)

> On parle effectivement Français dans ce café,
par contre il est impossible de trouver des Gauloises bleues!!...

ken mac June 25, 2008 at 7:35 PM  

Beautiful shot! Where in NYC is that exactly?

Marie-Noyale June 25, 2008 at 7:48 PM  

> Yes it's true I should have mentionned the address, here it is:

Café Charbon is located at the corner of Stanton St and Orchard in the lower East side.

I'm a huge fan of signage, and that Tabac sign is glorious!

Clueless in boston June 25, 2008 at 11:02 PM  

Nice shot of the sign. I collect business signs too. I guess you can find enclaves of all types in NYC, that's why it's so great.

Chuck Pefley June 26, 2008 at 2:45 AM  

Very effective. And thanks for the location.

Tabac. Love the word, takes me to South of France straight away. Love those little shops. Great image, very evocative.

Jilly June 26, 2008 at 7:26 AM  

How very French. Two things I love - a French tabac sign and those wonderful NY stairways.
