Jon Crispin's Notebook

Moe

Posted in Buildings, Food, History, People, Windows by joncrispin on 30/09/2010

I took the train into New York City on Tuesday and met Craig Williams at City Hall Park.  He took me over to One Liberty Plaza to meet some of the September 11 Memorial folks and have a peek at the WTC site.  We then went over to Engine Company 6 which is just an amazing place. / The main purpose of the trip was to photograph the Albanese Meats & Poultry shop on Elizabeth Street.  The history is a bit too involved to get into, but Moe has been cutting meat here for a very long time.  He worked with his mom, Mary for almost 50 years until she died in 2002 at the age of 97.  He is an amazingly nice guy.  I’ll post more soon.
