Here's a photo of a storefront in Brooklyn (specifically the Bushwick area):

I couldn't help but notice how similar the layout of the facade is visually similar to the building housing the Fix/Mail-It Shop/Laundromat/whatever and Hooper's Store, which makes me wonder if something like this is what served as the inspiration for designing the building, much like Harlem brownstones inspired the design of 123.
