Des Moines / Manhattan Deli

, posted by Matt Niebuhr.

This is part of an initial collection of photographs from a Saturday afternoon on Ingersoll Ave. A lunch time hangout – the Manhattan Deli is part of a unique collection of diversity that can be found along this street. A “mom and pop” ambiance – with terrific picture windows. This is the sort of business along this street that embraces the sidewalk and the street – as opposed to the fast food chain businesses. It’s the sort of place you want to become yours and sit and read a paper. There is a delicate balance between new development along this street and redevelopment of existing businesses. This collection is intended to show over time how the community treats these opportunities.
