This is #7 in my 100 strangers assignment. Check out the 100 Strangers website to see more pictures and people working on the same assignment:
Arthur Avenue is the epicenter of an Italian neighborhood in the Bronx. The Arthur Avenue Café, is a small restaurant on a street filled with butcher shops, grocery stores, bakeries and, of course, other restaurants.
Mama Greco is the proprietress of the establishment and, if you're interested, will tell you her family history and if you're willing to share, she'll listen to yours.
Before we left she had sung a beautiful operatic-quality Ave Maria, whose last 6 seconds I was able to video with my camera. The other 23 seconds show our and the other patron's appreciation of her lovely voice. The book she's holding is an Arthur Avenue cookbook that I bought and she had just finished signing.This link will take you to the actual photo I posted to flickr.
