Since 1910, Yonah Schimmel’s Knish Bakery in the Lower East Side has been serving up delicious jewish pastries and knishes to a neighborhood that has changed hands a dozen times.
Yonah Schimmel’s is the oldest knishery in the United States, and is still owned by the family, currently run by Yonah’s great-nephew, Alex Wolfman. Today, whilst most of the original Lower East Side continues to gradually disappear, stopping in for a traditional knish at Yonah Schimmel’s, is to experience a genuine taste of the neighborhood that once flourished here amongst the tenement buildings over a century ago.
