To the native New Yorker, to the word “bodega” goes beyond stock and trade. The word we New Yorkers use to describe our metropolis is freighted with subtle meaning and reflects our city’s long and ethnically diverse history. It can often be lumped into the peculiarities of the New York accents, grammar, and language. But critically, when a New Yorker hears the word “bodega” he or she also pictures a specific style of design. This includes red and yellow awnings (“cold cuts and cold beer”), a variety of window ads, and a small sign advertising, a sense of pride in ethnic and cultural proprietorship, and the diverse community that patrons them.
