8. Albanese Meats & Poultry in Nolita

Albanese Meat Soho

Albanese Meats & Poultry in Nolita was founded by an Italian immigrant, Vincenzo Albanese in 1923 just across the street from their current location which is located at 238 Elizabeth Street. His son, Moe, was born on Elizabeth Street in 1925 and grew up in the business that he runs today. Moe the Butcher talks of the history of his family shop in the documentary The Last Butcher in Little Italy.
