Streit's has been on the Lower East Side for 90 years. When they leave the city, in a couple of months, for New Jersey (of all places!), we'll be sitting shiva.

Tomorrow night at the JCC, you can see an advance screening of the documentary Streit's: Matzo and the American Dream. Sigh.

Joe Holmes spent five weeks documenting Streit's and the results are very beautiful and very sad.

A selection of his images is below. See the full portfolio here. Prints from all of Joe's portfolios are available through Jen Bekman Gallery,
