Looking back over the archives, it seems that every year around this time I check in on the old Zito Bakery space on Bleecker Street in the Village. And every year I find it in a more advanced state of degradation than the year before.
This is absolutely the worst state in which I've seen the former neighborhood landmark. The door and windows are completely covered with graffiti, stickers and tape. And the transom window above the door is completely gone, allowing any vandal to climb inside should they wish. Whoever's in charge of the maintenance of this storefront (anyone?) should be ashamed of themselves.
