Circo’s Pastry Shop in Bushwick, Brooklyn has been in business since 1945

This Italian 🇮🇹  #bakery has been using the same original family recipes brought over from Sicily by the current owner, Nino Pierdipino. When we took this #analog photo in 2004 for our book “Store Front: The Disappearing Face of New York” Nino’s son (and 2nd generation owner), Anthony told us that the @circospastryshop #neon #signage is original and was covered by mesh for safety reasons in the 1970s. It has now been uncovered and restored to working condition.

Circo's and 15 other of our #storefront photos are part of the new exhibition “The Business of Brooklyn” at the Brooklyn Historical Society’s @brooklynhistory location at Pierrepoint Street in Brooklyn Heights.
