Ethnic food

I drive past this restaurant almost every day, and only now did it occur to me to snap a photo as I was waiting for the traffic light to change.  Schenectady was noted for her Italian immigrants at the turn of the last century; particularly southern Italy and Sicily.  Even now, Italian surnames are quite commonplace.  Poles and Hungarians had an influx mid-century and today we have Guyanese moving in.  There are small populations of Pakistanis and Chinese too.  We have many interesting faces, sounds and names on our streets.  This take-out restaurant has signs for many of them: halal, kebabs, pizza, gyros, pasta, fried chicken... and they deliver!  The famous Leaning Tower of Pisa is apparently the only Italian illustration the sign maker could find; as an attraction of northern Italy, the famous tower isn't particularly evocative of the many southern Italians.
