Snapshot: V&J Mini Market - Fordham Heights

Today's Snapshot is not a supermarket, but more like a bodega. It's still one that caught my eye, though, as I was heading east on 183rd St from the Pioneer we saw yesterday.
This store, whose storefront is under construction and previously looked like this, is remarkable because the awning we can see in the street view (just a month before I visited) was installed right on top of past signage which had just been painted over. And very few stores nowadays in New York City still use the term Superette, but it's quite common in other areas (like I'm in Massachusetts now, and you see Superettes very frequently). This one is located at 51 E 183rd St, Bronx, NY.
