I last remember seeing the sign during the Summer of '03. I'm not even sure whether Shea's was still open at the time; can't quite recall. I believe the store sat vacant for a year or two. Anyway, by some point in 2004, the structure was gone. The following year, condos were up in its place.
 
The sign was old and somewhat weathered during the final years of the market's operation, but was likely in fine working order. I guess I can't say for sure, but I assume it could have been refurbished. I don't know whether anyone got it, or if it went down with the ship, so to speak...

Does anyone remember a little grocery store in the Crest by the name of Taylor's?
 
I don't know if it is still open.
 
I vaguely recall that it was a light green color.

Taylor's Market was on NJ - it's not Marcella's Cafe 6111 NJ Ave.

The last year of Shea's Market the actual market was closed. They operated out of the 'take out' store front next store. I sure miss their in house cooked roast beef with the complementary gravy they would give you only if you asked. That sure saved me many a night, when unexpected guests arrived. The worn wood floors, the 'customer service', always the place to go to get the latest news.
The gal behind the deli at Shea's is now at the 24th St. Market.  
Al you're right the sign was really in nasty shape, I think it was '03 when they closed.

I'm glad someone mentioned Russo's. It is my all time favorite place to eat. I took these pictures last summer.

Thanks, this is fun. I finally found a place for all of my pictures!  People always made fun of me for taking so many.
 
Here's another random one...

Wow, I concur with Frank; quite a debut you've made on these forums, walkerbabe.
 
Welcome!  Cheesy
 
Love the shots of Russo's and the Hialeah also, plus all of the others. Great stuff, and thanks for taking the time to share all of your memories with us!  Smiley

I am glad to share.  Wildwood has been my escape for so long.  I was just so glad to hear about Doo Wop preservation in the first place.
I remember going here as a small child one time, before they closed.  Where was it ?

Zaberer's was an incredible place, the kind of restaurant you could never imagine not being around one day while it was in it's prime. Like so many other institutions down in the Wildwoods, it just seemed like it would live on forever. Then, Ed Zaberer sold the business and then, all of a sudden -- FIRE -- and it's gone.  
 
It just goes to show how quickly things can change, a lesson we've been, unfortunately, beaten over the head with in more recent years...
