Porto Rico Importing, East Village, Manhattan
Porto Rico Importing has been in business since 1907. It is one of the few businesses on St Mark’s that has been there for that length of time. They import fine coffees and teas and you can even get a coffee there and sit on the bench outside all year round.
As a photographer and a lover of independent businesses, I am always drawn to hand-painted business signs and the sense of individual personality that shines through. Stop by for a cup or a pound of coffee or tea.
