Owner of 15 Year Old Peter Pan Donuts Reflects On Changing Greenpoint Neighborhood

Peter Pan Donut & Pastry Shop is a classic 15-year-old Greenpoint bakery with counter seating that serving up donuts, pastries, shakes, egg creams and other delicious desserts.

In this short video from 1 Minute Meal, we hear from co-owner Donna Siafakas on how the neighborhood has changed and how it affects her business.

Peter Pan Donuts, one of New York’s most beloved doughnut shops, has seen the immigrant neighborhood of Greenpoint changed by an influx of developments and younger residents over the past 15 years. Co-owner Donna Siafakas expresses gratitude for how lively these newcomers have made her slice of home, but without an essential place like Peter Pan for locals of all stripes to sit at the counter and get along, it’s hard to imagine what would link the old fashioned and the new generation together.
