Newsstand-Luncheonette was one of Albert’s go-to bodegas for bacon, egg, and cheese sandwiches and coffee that would come in the famous blue, white, and gold Greek coffee cup. If you look at some of Albert’s pieces, you will find these cups littered about just as they were in real life.


Newsstand-Luncheonette serves as an homage to what these stands and bodegas once signified. It speaks of a time when bodegas served as gathering spots for the neighborhood and when store owners did not emphasize who they were as much as what they sold.
