Joe’s Dairy on Sullivan Street, New York City

Shot last week -Spring Break in NYC.  My sister walked us by and it was open.

They couldn’t be nicer.  People behind counters are captive. I ask for permission after a bit of conversation.  Sometimes you get “I’d rather not.” but here I got a “Sure!”.

Thanks, Rose.

(And if you want to make your own cheese go here and click on the Cheesy Stuff page)

Meet Rose Pianoforte. I know, her apron says Angela.
She was really nice and helpful. And gracious to allow me to photograph her.
Those are olives stuffed with cheese on the counter.

    What a great looking place. I love the array of different cheeses in the fridge behind Rose. All the better that you made conversation since I’m sure there are many regulars that probably think Rose’s name is Angela.

  7. This reminds me of the little markets Dad took us to Sunday mornings when I was a boy. Good to see that they’re still around, Ruth.
