-  Summary of audio segment: That's why people are going more and more to the supermarket for their Italian delicacies. And that takes away from these small stores. And MC doesn't believe we're going to see generation after generation on 21st Avenue with the new groups. Not only with the Hispanic groups, but the Italians too. Gives example of Miraglia's butcher shop, says he knows the place, knows the family. One of the cousins of the owner is a butcher in a supermarket now. That's where they get their benefits. If you're not a relative, not the owner, need to have another job for the benefits. But those three stores in a row were always busy, always made money -- Joe's Meats, R&C Deli, and the produce store, Mario's [which is now Ditaranto's] -- those three stores were always those types of business, and were always busy, ever since MC was a kid. And they always made out.
