Earlier today, Yonah Schimmel Knish Bakery.

We led a walking tour of the Storefronts of the East Village/L.E.S. today for a the Municipal Art Society of New York and stopped in Yonah Schimmel Knishery, which has been in business since 1910. Everyone on the tour learned the history of the knish which is baked fresh every day in the basement bakery of the storefront. Seen in this photo is Julie, one of the tour attendees, who also purchased Yonah's homemade yogurt, which is still made using the same yogurt culture that was brought over from Romania by Rabbi Yonah Schimmel in the late 1800s.
