Amy’s Bread shop on Bleecker Street has closed

Amy’s Bread shop on Bleecker Street has just recently closed due to an effort by the company to cut costs in an effort to keep their bread prices competitive. Amy Scherber founded her #breadbakery in Hell’s Kitchen in 1992 (our 2001 photo of the original location appears in our book “Store Front: The Disappearing Face of New York”) and opened the Greenwich Village location later. This news is particularly sad 😢 because Bleecker Street has many empty storefronts due mainly to high rent blight. We hope this #storefront does not remain empty for years like Zito’s Italian bread bakery did after it closed in 2004.
