Vesuvio Bakery

Vesuvio Bakery is at 160 Prince Street in SOHO. The green facade is one of the distinctive images and colors of downtown NYC which inhabitants would recognize immediately - the shade of blue green is so striking that nearly everyone that sees the shop comments on the color. The bread is handmade daily and presented simply by being piled up in helplessly beautiful stacks in the windows. The shop is a fixture of the old little Italy in NYC which has survived many generations, a tremendous feat in this city of constant change, and is still family owned. Recently, a few small tables and a wider variety of food have been added. This place became special by preserving itself on its own intimate terms while the neighborhood has gentrified exponentially around it. Seeing it is like taking a few seconds of a visual calming and restorative meditative break.

Aww, I wanted to start a New York daily photo, but I was waiting until I was back in the city. Oh well, I'll just drool over your pictures instead. I can't wait for more updates.
