This photo was taken on East 6th Street in 1971. I’m sure you’re thinking that it looks much older than that. But in reality this is a 1970s photo of East 6th Street all dolled up to look much older – for the filming of the Godfather II! Pretty cool, right? The Oscar-winning sequel used East 6th Street to depict Vito Corleone’s Italian neighborhood of 1917, where he first started his family and his life of crime. I even found a couple stills from the movie where you can clearly make out the buildings and storefronts on the block – here you can see the double arched windows of the S. Fiore storefront at the far left of our photo, and here you can see that beautiful painted glass storefront bearing the name “The Washington.”

NEW YORK NY

 

 
 
This is 100 years after the time our photo depicts, and 45 years after it was actually taken.  Thankfully we’ve managed to hold on to this entire strip of tenements, and many of their architectural details. The arched windows at 524 and the protruding glass storefront and centered wooden doorway of 520 (now a bar, rather than The Washington) all remain. At 522, the ground-level configuration is the same although in The Godfather image they appear to be two separate storefronts (one with an awning, one with Instituto Italiano at the frieze). This building’s upper floors seem to have lost their arched windows and lintels, too.

The GODFATHER Part II
 
Francis Ford Coppola
 
After visiting Florida to seal the deal with Roth, Michael pays an unannounced visit to Pentangeli on Long Island and asks him to help take his revenge. As part of his plan, he insists that Pentangeli capitulate to the Rosato brothers so that Roth will not suspect that Michael is on to him. Pentangeli prefers open warfare against Roth and the Rosatos, but reluctantly obeys Michael’s order.
Pentangeli arranges a meeting with the Rosato brothers. Arriving at the meeting place, Pentangeli leaves his bodyguard outside and enters the bar alone. Once inside, Tony Rosato (Danny Aiello) ambushes Pentangeli with a garotte, telling him, “Michael Corleone says hello.” A policeman steps inside, and the attack degenerates into a shootout in the street. Pentangeli disappears and is believed to be dead.

CACIO PEPE
“Anthony Bourddain ‘s Favorite Pasta”
RIP TONY




RECIPE
INGREDIENTS :
1 pound Imported Italian Spaghetti
2 tablespoon freshly, coarsely grated Black Pepper
4 tablespoons Butter
2 1/4 cups grated Pecorino Romano Cheese
PREPARATION
Cook the spaghetti according to the directions for that brand, usually about 8 or 9 minutes. Start the sauce when the spaghetti is not quite cooked, about 3 minutes before you would normally take it out of the water. In a already heated saute pan big enough to eventually hold your pasta, add the boiling pasta water, the butter and the pepper. Pull the pasta out of the water and let it drain. Add the drained pasta to the pan and toss through the water mixture until the pasta absorbs almost all of the water. Remove from the heat, and add the grated cheese to the pasta. Very quickly, stir the cheese into the pasta so that it becomes creamy. If it starts to clump or becomes too dry, add a little more of the pasta water as you are  stirring.  Place the pasta into the Parmesan cup and garnish with more grated cheese and freshly grated pepper, to taste.

The KNICKS SUCK The NY Knicks Suck

 

AM I MAKING MYSELF CLEAR ?

The NEW YORK KNICKS SUCK

.

knicks6970champs

THIS TEAM Was GREAT

The 1969 /70 WORLD CHAMPION NEW YORK KNICKS

knicks19

This TEAM SUCKS !!!

So BIG TIME IT ISN’T EVEN FUNNY

The 2018 /19 NEW YORK KNICKS Basketball Team

“THEY’RE PITIFUL” !!!

KNICKS RECORD

2017 -2018 Season   29 WINS  53 LOST  “BAD”

2016 – 2017 Season   31 WINS  51 LOST “PRETTY Fing BAD”

2014 -2015  Season   17  WINS  65 LOST  “SUCKS”

As of January 30, 2019 the Knicks record so far for the 2018 / 19 Seaso is10 Wins & 40 Losses, “That Fucking Sucks!” The KNICKS SUCK so Bad it isn’t even funny, and not just this year. Look at their “PISS POOR” Record in the past few years? This team is Pitiful, and collectively for the last 5 Years “The Worst NY KNICKS Team” in the history of the frachise. Thhey “Fucking Suck” ! Am I making myself clear here? The KNICKS SUCK !!! The loyal fans do not deserve this. I’ve heard of teams being bad, but this is rediculous. At this point in the season with a disgustingly HORRIBLE win loss recor of 10 Wins and 40 Losses the Knicks are on pace to have the Worst Record in New York Knickerbocker History if the finish with a record of 15 Wins & 67 Losses or worse which the current Knicks are on pace to do. “They Suck.” And I really don’t care that much, I’m not really a fan of NBA Basketball, which I think SUCKS, I’d much rather watch College Basketball which as an overall experience of watching better basketball games and overall feel of basketball, the experience of watching premier college basketball is superior than watching any NBA game at all, which to me and a multitude of others just quite simply sucks, just like the Knicks, who of all NBA Teams, the Knicks Suck the most. As a proud New York, it’s one thing to have a Professional New York Sports Team have one or two bad seasons, but this team has been pretty dam bad for the past 5 year or so. In fact, guess what? They “Suck.”

kristapsporzingis

When is PORZY Coming Back ?

Kristap Porkingis has been one of the few Bright Lights for the Knicks in the past few years. Only Problem? He’s been injured and not playing for more than a year now. When is he coming back?

billbradley69

Bill Bradley

Back when the Knicks were great. Bill Bradley played on a great Knick team with the likes of players like; Walt “Clyde” Frazier, Willis Reed, Dave DeBusschere, Cazzie Russell, Dick Barnett, Dave Stallworth, and Mike Riordn. The won the NBA Championship in 1969 / 1970 , with a season record of 60 Wins against 22 losses.

The 1972 / 73 Knicks had a record of W 57 – L 25  and Wond The NBA Champiships again under Coach Red Holtzman again. They still had Walt Frazier, Willis Red, Bill Bradley, Dick Barnett, and Dave DeBusschere, but this time with the additon of the Awesome Earl “The Pearl” Monroe, Dean “The Dream” Meminger, Jerry Lucas, and Phil Jackson.

Oh by The WAY “The GIANTS SUCK” Too !!!!

2018 NY GIANTS – WINS 5 – LOSSES 11 “They SUCK” But not quite as Bad as 2018

2017 NY GIANTS  3 WINS 13 LOSSES “THEY SUCK” WORST GIANT TEAM EVER !!!

PATSY’S  “Franks Favorite Restaurant”

Frank’s Favorite Restaurant in The World, was Patsy’s on West 56th Street in New York, in The Theater District near Times Square .. Frank’s Favorites were; Calms Posillipo, Spaghetti Pomodoro,  Veal Milanes (extra Thin & Crispy) and Spaghetti & Meatballs of which patsy’s makes The Best in The City ..

PATSY’S is by far the restaurant most associated with SINATRA — on its website, the restaurant notes that it “has been known for years as the restaurant Frank Sinatra made famous.” You can still order up old-school Italian there, but you might not have the exact same experience as Sinatra, who was said to have entered through a special door to sit at a reserved table on the second floor. Sinatra became especially loyal to the restaurant after making a solo Thanksgiving reservation one year, not realizing the restaurant was slated to be closed that day. Patsy Scognamillo didn’t want to turn Sinatra away, so he allowed the reservation. He also didn’t want Sinatra to know the restaurant was opened just for him — so he had the entire staff bring their families to fill the place up, something Sinatra didn’t learn until years later, according to Patsy’s lore. The restaurant still celebrates its connection to Sinatra: At right, in 2002, Joe Scognamillo served actor Bill Boggs, who had dressed up as Sinatra . (236 West 56th St.)

Want to Eat Like SINATRA? It’s quite a fun thing to do, follow in the footsteps of the great Francis Albert SInatra, and eat and hang at Frank’s favorite haunts of all-time. You can go to The 21 Club and eat there famous 21 Burger, and get some Jack Daniels while you’re at it, it was Sinatra’s favorite drink.

Also, not far from The 21 Club, and a lot more affordable, is PJ Clarke’s on 3rd Avenue at 52 nd Street. Get one of their tasty Burgers, Frank loved them. And again, do like Frank and order up a Jack Daniels while you’re at it. This is the place that Johhny Merver and Harold Arlen were thinking of when they wrote one of Sinatra’s most beloved song, “One For My Baby.”

Go up to East Harlem for Frank’s Favorite Pizza at Patsy’s Pizzeria at 2287 First Avenue, New York.

And there’s another Patsy’s down on West 56th Street between 8th Avenue and Broadway. No, it has nothing to do with Patsy’s Pizzeria. Patsy’s on W. 56th is a full fleged Italian Restaurant, and as almost anyone knows, this was Sinatra’s favorite restuarant ever. It’s still run by the same family who started cooking for Frank way back in the 40s. Go in and eat like Frank. Order some Clams Posillipo, Spaghetti Pomodoro, and Veal Milanese just the way Frank did.

And if you want to do it like Sinatra in the comfort of your own home, get yourself a copy of Daniel Bellino’s great book SUNDAY SAUCE

with recipes for  DOLLY SINATRA ‘S MEATBALLS and ITALIAN-AMERICAN SUNDAY SAUCE GRAVY … You’ll be eating like the Sinatra Clan anytime you like. Cook up some Meatballs and Sunday Sauce, get a nice bottle of Chianti, throw on some Sinatra LPs and you’ll be in your own little Sinatra Heaven. “What’s Better than that?”

GRANDMA BELLINO’S COOKBOOK

“RECIPES FROM MY SICILIAN NONNA”

by Daniel Bellino “Z”

Author Daniel Bellino “Z” has the same ancestral Sicilian Roots as Frank Sinatra and one Charles “Lucky” Luciano who was born in LERCARA FRIDDI SICILY , as was Frank SInatra ‘s father Martino Severino Sinatra and Bellino ‘s maternal grandparents Giussepina Salemi and Fillipo Bellino who both immigrated from Lercara Friddi to New York through Ellis Island in 1904 . In 1906 Luciano ‘s parents immigrated and settled on the Lower East Side of New York when young Charlie (Salvatore ) was 9 years old.
