Emily's Pork store is not a place it's a destination for all those who love pork in all it's wonderous forms. My family landed in Williamsburg and Greenpoint Brooklyn in 1896 from the Naples region of Italy. We never left. However, our specialty stores and culture for the most part has evaporated. One of the strongholds of the North Brooklyn Italian immigrants is still striving today. Emily's is the place to get the finest tasting sausage (the sweet with or without fennel) and the hot sausage are absolutely off the charts. You will not be disapointed with the olives imported from Sicily or the fresh, dried, dried and smoked mozzarella cheese (pronounced moozadell). Come to think of it all the cheeses he sells there are tremendous. Even though Emily's is a pork store don't be afraid to order beef there either. I've purchased some of the finest steaks from there as well. As a matter of fact I am going to be picking up 15 pounds of sausage there next Friday for a BBQ to celebrate my friends birthday! Happy happy times!!! Can't wait. Oh and before I forget the dried sausage and the sopressatta (pronounced supersod) are out of this world too! Get your behinds to Emily's Pork Store is all I can say and you will see that everything I claim is true you might even think I didn't go far enough in telling you how great the provisions really are.
Lois Bozwell here ! A very handsome and sexy man with dark hair sits in front of the store in his shiny new black Mercedes-Benz and watches over the basil plants he plants in front of the store on the curb every summer. I think he is the owner of the store there, and I never saw such beautiful, lush, green and fragrant basil ! It actually stays healthy and vibrant through mid October there ! Sadly, he yells at you if you pull a few leaves off to take home. What is the purpose of planting it there if you do not want to share it with the customers and neighbors ? Basil is an herb and meant to cook with and eat....not just to admire like flowers ! Funny thing is, everybody likes Italian cuisine, but most of the Russian Jews in that neighborhood do not use basil and have no idea what to do with it. Sadly, this store closed in April and is now out of business and that hot dude is gone, too ! The "flower-beds" by the curbside are now full of big, ugly weeds....and that is sad !
