Got a great little email from Debbie over at thirteen.org about a feature of our very own Donna Siafakas, owner of Peter Pan Donut Shop. I *love* the part where she refers to the first shop she and her husband opened in “Italian Greenpoint” and she struggles to even refer to it as “Williamsburg” now with an eye roll. Pretty much sums up every natives feelings on that!
Channel Thirteen has an online-only series called “New York on the Clock.” Each week we feature a short interview with a New Yorker on the job. I thought you might like to share this one with your readers…
This week’s episode features Donna, the owner of the Peter Pan Donut and Pastry Shop on Manhattan Ave. A favorite stop for both neighborhood regulars and out-of-town visitors, Peter Pan features hand-cut donuts and a few seasonal and special items, such as their donut ice cream sandwich.
