Henri Garrou’s Legacy

In the heart of bustling Hell’s Kitchen, nestled along Ninth Avenue, stands a relic from a bygone era—an enchanting neon sign that has witnessed the ebb and flow of New York City’s history. 

In 1934, Henri Garrou, a visionary with a penchant for fine libations, commissioned the sign. Just a year after the repeal of Prohibition, he declared to the world that Ninth Avenue Wine & Liquor was open for business. The sign became a beacon of hope, drawing thirsty patrons seeking solace in a glass of wine or a well-crafted spirit.

And so, through decades of change—wars, celebrations, and quiet revolutions—the sign persisted. It watched as Hell’s Kitchen transformed, as new generations of New Yorkers passed beneath its glow. It became a silent witness to countless stories—a sentinel of taste, tradition, and tenacity.

So, next time you walk Ninth Avenue, pause. Look up. Let the neon sign weave its magic, connecting you to a time when Henri Garrou dreamed of sharing the finest wines with the world.
