Love these views of the old and real New York! Does anyone else see some kind of face in the meat? (no, not Mother Theresa)

I thought I saw a crazy face in the meat too.If it gets out that it looks like Mother Theresa, then watch the pilgrimages begin.

The face in the meat is Edvard Munch’s “The Scream.”

I know! the chopping block out in the middle of the store was what caught my eye.
They must be doing something right, they have been in the same spot for 50 or more years, they ain’t hiding.

You know, it really shows in these photos that photography is your life. Very unusual and creative. Beautiful.

I used to live by this place and loved walking past… it’s like time forgot this little shop. I hope it stays there forever.

I am vegetarian, but one word: FANTASTIC.

I do not eat much meat; the older man could convince me otherwise.

These photos blow me away. The second one is as beautiful a story as I’ve ever seen.

I love the little Infant of Prague…I wonder if the butcher thinks you're nuts.

I have been following you for quite sometime now Mr. Schuman, I really admire you're work and you're wisdom.. but when my girlfriend just sent me a link to a 2006 article of my grandpa doing what he does best I couldn't believe I missed that! I hope you had a nice time there!
And yes everyone the meat is that good, that's why it's been around for so long! It's not in boxes like Trader Joe's, this is the real deal people!
Thank you Sartorialist,Jen Prezioso
ps the store used to be across the street, the owner kept the storefront when it was bought for aesthetic purposes (it's his studio).

Ha and just realized the Fulton Fish Market above– Moe was an inspector there for quite some time.
