Origianal Artwork by DANIEL BELLINO ZWICKE
This is a painting produced by author Daniel Bellino-Zwicke of Greenwich Village New York of the facade of the old VESUVIO BAKERY on PRINCE STREET in what locals call GREENWICH VILLAGE, but others know as SOHO .. VESUVIO BAKERY which operated as a Italian Bread Bakery for 90 years (Since 1920) before being closed.
The Vesuvio Bakery at 160 Prince Street has long presented one of New York City’s iconic storefronts. The bakery opened in 1920 and was owned by Anthony Dapolito, who delivered Vesuvio bread on his bicycle as a child, for many years before his death in 2003.
The space is currently Birdbath Bakery, which calls itself “one of the the most eco-friendly businesses on earth.” Bread is delivered by bicycle-powered rickshaws and discounts are given to customers who roll up on bikes. (why not walk-ins?)
MANGIA ITALIANO !

1. Get out the map. Group the sights that you want to see by neighborhood so that you visit one area of the city each day (i.e., visit the Statue of Liberty and Wall Street one day, and Central Park and Times Square another day). This will make the most of your time and save you money on subways and taxis.
2. Expand your reach. Spend at least part of your trip exploring residential neighborhoods like NoHo, Tribeca and Greenwich Village rather than the tourist traps. You’ll get to see the real New York without paying out the wazoo.
3. Purchase a tourist pass. If you know you’ll be packing in a lot of popular attractions into your stay, you may be able to save with a city pass. The New York Pass gives you entry into the dozens of attractions covered by the pass over a set number of days for one fixed price. Another option is the CityPass, which includes admission to six museums and sights, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Empire State Building, over nine days. Passes such as these not only save you money but also enable you to skip the lines.
4. Look for reduced admission. Check the websites of museums you plan to visit and see whether they offer any free or reduced-price admission days. For example, the Museum of Modern Art is free every Friday between 4 and 8 p.m. Some museums also offer coupons or discounts on their websites.
5. Take advantage of freebies. Some attractions are free all the time — including Central Park, where there are almost always street performers and musicians roaming around, and the High Line, a public park recently created from an old elevated rail line. The Downtown Boathouse offers free public kayaking programs.
6. Stock up on coupons. For discounts on food, shopping, spas and attraction admission, try Groupon.com. You register for free, and every day, the site sends you an email with a discount offer for a business in the city you’ve chosen. (Recent deals included up to 69 percent off dinner and drinks at a Latin bistro on the Lower East Side and half-price tickets to the Museum of the American Gangster.) The catch is that you only have 24 hours to purchase each deal (but you do have more than 24 hours to use it). People who know they’ll be traveling to New York City can stock up on said deals (for which they’ll receive printable email confirmation/coupons/verification of purchase) prior to visiting. LivingSocial.com is another similar site to try.
7. Take the ferry. Skip the touristy (and pricey) harbor cruises and take the Staten Island Ferry instead for fantastic views of New York Harbor — it’s free!
8. Find low-cost events. There are free or inexpensive concerts, readings, art exhibits and other events happening all over the city on any given day; the only challenge is finding them. Check out, New York Magazine’s online event search feature that lets you filter results by cost (try “$10 & Under” or “Free”).
9. Save on Broadway tickets. The popular TKTS booths are a great place to check for discounted Broadway tickets, but they’re not your only option. There are often even better deals to be had on discount ticket websites like.
10. Go to the source. Theaters will often sell leftover tickets (for as little as $25) a couple of hours before shows at their respective box offices — but sometimes it’s standing room only, or seats may not be together if you’ve got a group. Some theaters may give discounts to seniors or students with ID; it never hurts to ask.
11. Get a subscription. Theater lovers who visit New York regularly or are planning a lengthy trip should consider an Audience Extras membership. For a yearly fee, you get access to last-minute tickets for local shows and concerts that have empty seats to fill. Tickets are free other than a small ticket service charge. The membership pays for itself after just a few shows.
