On the Street: Vesuvio Bakery

…at least, this was Vesuvio Bakery, located at 160 Prince Street in Manhattan, from 1920 to 2009. When it closed (a sad day), the space was taken over by City Bakery, which has thoughtfully kept the historic facade (and most of the interior) intact. (You can read a short article about the changeover here.)

I like these towers of cookies surrounding a vintage Statue of Liberty figurine, not to mention the “Big Apple” cookie jar at the right.
