1. Pino Prime Meats
Located in the shadow of St. Anthony of Padua Church sits the tiny Pino Prime Meats now run by Pino’s sons Leo and Sal. You might recognize the shop from it’s film appearances in The Godfather Part II and The Pope of Greenwich Village. Located at 149 Sullivan Street, just south of Houston, they have recently been in the news over a threat of losing their lease. That threat recently resolved, at least for the next few years, they were a recent recipient of an award by the Greenwich VIllage Society of Historic Preservation for providing over a century of good products and service. They are also known as the shop across the street from Joe’s Dairy, who closed shuttered in 2013.
