sun ming in sky


please click on photo to get a better look at the sun ming signage


it's unfortunate that sun ming restaurant is no longer open. I did a google search and found it had an excellent reputation. it's depressing seeing establishments close down one after the other.
though it is still a pretty neat looking building. and somehow the sun makes everything seem a little brighter. if you'd like to see other skies from all around the world, please go here.

also, today is the last day to enter for a chance to win my giveaway, the book, Long Island Daily Photo, in celebration of my one year blogoversary, thanks to the generous sponsorship of blurb. if you like this site, I think you may enjoy the book. please click on the sidebar book icon to enter your name in the comments section. & thanks again for all of your well wishes.

It's always a pity when good restaurants and shops close.

That is quite the colorful restaurant. Why did it close down? Bad economic times?

It is a great building. It is too bad that it is closed.

Do leave word how to get your book, in case it isn't easily found down here in south jersey.

Around here too many empty stores ... I dont understand the landlords .. how can NO rent be better than some rent? Why raise rents so shops have to close ... I dont understand this logic ...

Great photo, sorry to go off topic.
