I opened my second Jack's Stir Brew Coffee shop in New York's Financial District & Historic South Street Seaport in 2005. I love the grittiness of old New York and that's a lot of what attracted me to Front St - you can feel it when you're here. The historic fish market, the cobblestone streets, views of The Brooklyn Bridge. It's a place that deserves to be discovered, even now. Our Fidi coffee shop is particularly important to me because I built it with my own hands. Twice. Priceless and irreplaceable photos from the Fulton Fish Market once hung on the walls above reclaimed wooden tables and chairs I had hunted for, but I lost it all when Sandy hit New York in October of 2012. It was such a tragic loss for me at the time - a tough financial hit for the business and yours truly. I felt like the odds were stacked against me and feared the storm had got the best of me. I called in a lot of favors and relied heavily on friends and family to rebuild and move forward. That's community.
