Coyote Flaco is a Mexican restaurant located at 273 North Avenue in New Rochelle between the Bank of America branch and the Kaufman Building and opposite the newly redesigned No Defecation Railway Station. Possibly motivated by their neighbor’s renovations, the owners are in the process of fixing up their establishment. At the moment, the ‘Coyote Flaco’ sign and any underlying palimpsets have been removed, revealing a somewhat faded white lettering on the painted black masonry:”Candle Light Club.”
On hearing about this find, New Rochelle Public Library Historian Barbara Davis recommended a visit to the City Hall Bureau of Assessment followed by the New Rochelle History Room at the library. The staff at the Assessors Office were very helpful and quickly located the ownership record for the property. The ownership records begin in 1943 and show seven ownership changes since, at least three involving the same person. In the margins, the cards mention that the property housed the bar-restaurants Beau Brummel’s and Serendipity, but no mention of the Candle Light Club.

In the late 1800's (around 1879) The David Jones Brewery and Malting Establishment operated a brewery on his property located at the westerly corner or Webster Avenue and Union Avenue. It was called the Lager Bier Brewery. He also operated a Brewery for Ale in Manhattan. He died in 1881 and the Brewery and his estate were settled some years later. I will include links to an old map showing the location of the Brewery and his farm, New York Times articles from 1885 describing his heirs and division of property and a picture of the Brewery. What I am trying to find is his living Heirs with the purpose of trying to find out if the original lager and ale recipes exist. I have spent many hours researching but can't seem to come up with anything.
Look at the railway just above the lowest point of the U. The Brewery is at the corner of Webster and Union
