- “Zip up your shirt all the way and shut up!”— A Sharfie's waitress
Sharfie's is a moons parlor in the bad part of New York City, known as a place police officers don't patrol. Thin Kinkle and his gang often went there. Kinkle referred to it as "his place". It was at Sharfie's that Janissary James first encountered Kinkle, when she beat him at moons in order to save a man Kinkle was threatening.
