vesuvio bakery

This week we have been working out of the Gothamist downtown office, and grabbing lunch at the M&O deli on Prince and Thompson Street. Looking across the street, we noticed a commotion in front of Vesuvio Bakery. When we walked over we were sad to discover all the flowers were there because the owner had died the day before. Apparently they are going to reopen the bakery in his honor pretty soon (it's been closed for renovations).

Inappropriate celebrity sighting: Looking up from the flowers, we couldn't help but notice Willem Dafoe standing behind us.
