Home of Palagonia – World’s Finest Italian Bread – Brooklyn, NY

Junius Street - Brownsville, Brooklyn - © Frank H. Jump

Bread is one of the oldest prepared foods, dating back to the Neolithic era. The development of leavened bread can probably also be traced to prehistoric times. – Wikipedia

At one time, Palagonia was the ONLY Italian bread you could buy at a corner deli. I wouldn’t call it the best anymore. Vincenzo is a fan (see Enzo’s View) of Cityline’s Rosa Maria Bakery & Deli on 101st Avenue – if you want a really good semolina bread. Another favorite of ours is Paneantico Bakery off 65th Street & 14th Avenue in Bensonhurst.

On another Vespa tour through Boro Park, Saul Rendelstein, Inc. (quite possibly Sigmund RendelsteinAncestry.com) was pointed out to me by Vincenzo. Further searching at Ancestry turned up this thread that suggests Rendelstein hailed from Kozova, Galicia – which is now Ukraine. Still no clue as to what goods this corporation produced. Any leads?
