Tell us about an amusing occurrence
at Russ & Daughters.
Watching customers eat the Holland Herring. The most traditional way to eat it is to lift it up by the tail, tilt your head back and drop the herring in your mouth. It’s quite a sight to see. I’ll never forget it.
What does the store mean to you?
It means so much because the Russ family has opened their arms to me.
What do you like to do in your free time?
Watch movies. I love movies.
What’s another favorite spot on the
Lower East Side?
Katz’s Delicatessen for their delicious pastrami.
