Lower East Side Voices: Economy Candy

Today we are kicking off another round of video stories in our ongoing Lower East Side Voices series. In the next week or so, we will be bringing you profiles of local businesses — some new, some old — all of which add to the neighborhood’s unique character.

We begin with Economy Candy, the Rivington Street classic that just celebrated its 80th birthday last year.

Today’s story was produced by Alexandra Semenova. This series is a collaboration with CUNY Journalism School’s NY City News Service
