Just this week Gandolfo Albanese, died due to complications from the Coronavirus. He would have been 95 on April 15. He was affectionately known as “Moe the Butcher” and has pretty much been in the neighborhood since he was born. The Albanese Meats & Poultry was started by his parents in 1923. His mother grew up here and his father was an immigrant from Sicily. "Moe" was a much beloved figure in the neighborhood and will be truly missed.

So today instead of writing in the blog I took a walk around the neighborhood and took photos of a neighborhood which could easily be in mourning at the loss of one of its beloved citizens but also in mourning at the loss of our street life, which has gone through so many changes since I moved in in 1978 and had already gone through many more a 100 years before. Living in this neighborhood you feel so much a part of its disappearing past, its hectic present, and modernizing future.
