We were walking to THOR (The Hotel on Rivington) last night and passed by the Streit’s bakery. We looked inside the open window and saw two men taking freshly baked matzoh off the conveyor belt. Without a word, one of the bakers handed us a piece of warm, slightly salted matzoh. I grew up eating Streit’s from their famous pink box
but never remembered it tasting so good. It was also nice to know that something is still baked on Manhattan’s Lower East Side.
