I shopped on Arthur Avenue yesterday for the first time
in over a year and was delighted to find that many
shops have been vastly improved.
You kind of got the feeling that everyone had gone back
to Italy for a bit just to see how things were done
Vegtables were the biggest improvement - the stands in
the market looked far better than they ever did before
and several small shops were remodeled to seem more
like modern Italy.
Bakeries also, seem much improved, with all sorts of
breads that could be found in Italy or classy Manhattan
shops, but hadn't reached the Bronx yet.
Has anybody else noticed this? Or am I just growning
nicer with old age?
