A Google map error?

I don't know what this place is,but it says "market" on top.The address is 652 46th St,in Manhattan's Hells Kitchen neighborhood's.When I googled the address it showed a French rotisserie restaurant called Le Bon Choix (the "good choice") on the map,AND that it's closed temporarily for renovations until November 2017!The Le Bon Choix restaurant is actually around the corner,but it extends to the rear where the door is in the photo.That green canvas cover wasn't in on the Google map image either,only a glass window.The metal hatch doors you see on the ground leads to the cellar downstairs where items are stored,in case you were wondering.You'll see many of them in front of small businesses in NYC.

 

Danish,or Viennese?Well,you might be surprised to know that the danish pastry did not originate in Denmark.In fact,while the Danish pastry workers were on strike in the 1850's,the pastry was brought over to Denmark from Austria and the Danish people called them,ironically,"Viennese" (or wienerbrød).
