Day 261

Moe’s Meat Market

September 16th, 2012



Moe is the last butcher left in Little Italy. He used to be in Little Italy, anyway, before all the Italians left and the upscale boutiques moved in. The neighborhood is now known as Nolita, as it is north of (what remains of) Little Italy.

Also, as you may have noticed, this meat market looks an awful lot like an art gallery. That's because it is an art gallery; Moe's shop is actually located across the street. The artist whose work is for sale here is no Johnny-come-lately, however; he's an elderly Hawaiian man who's owned this building since 1977.

    I used to live across the street from here – love that you featured the gallery here. Definitely one of the hidden gems of the city. It’s going to be a really depressing day when Moe’s Meat Market – and Moe’s butcher shop – are replaced by the boutiques that have become standard for that block. That block will lose whatever of its original character it has left when that happens.
