Public Auction At Farinella's Bakery And Pizza Follows Closing

Farinella Italian Bakery & Pizzeria, owned and operated by Alberto Cretara, a well known Italian rapper, closed their Worth Street location after two years. Like George Jefferson perhaps, they have moved on up to the Upper East Side, on Lexington Avenue between 78th and 79th Street. Here's video from their opening party for their new UES location, held downtown at the now closed Chinatown Fair. A public auction was held in their Worth Street location yesterday and attracted a crowd of people. Two more photos from the auction below.

Here's more from The New York Times in 2000 on Cretara's role as a rapper in Italy.
