Vesuvio Bakery, a glimpse at a New York from long ago. Soho, New York City.
This is one of my absolute favorite storefronts in Soho. A little over 90 years old, Vesuvio Bakery still looks as it did for decades. A tiny bit about the original owners of it is found in a newspaper article from 2003 :
"Dapolito, 83, worked as a boy in the bakery on Prince St., decades before the neighborhood came to be known as Soho. His father and mother, Nunzio and Jennie, immigrants from Naples, opened it in 1920 and Tony went on to own it after they died." - Source
The bakery is no longer in the Dapolito family and has changed ownership several times since the article cited above was written. It is currently still operating as a bakery and the owners have kept the storefront intact.
