How many NYC businesses do you know that have survived 110 years? On March 15, 2020, Yonah Schimmel Knish Bakery will celebrate their founding from a pushcart on Coney Island in 1890 to their current location on East Houston Street. In honor of this very special occasion, they will be selling Knishes for $1.10 to the first 110 sold that day.
The new exhibition at The Africa Center, Ezra Wube: Project Junction, couldn’t have been timed better ~ running during NYC Restaurant Week. This commissioned mixed media installation explores food “as a collective identity in its ever evolving state,” with the exhibition including a visit to some local, well-known African restaurants.
