YORKTOWN, N.Y. - Born and raised in the Bronx, George Zadrima has lived in Yorktown for the past eight years. But as much as he loves the community, when it came to food shopping, he couldn’t help but feel that something was missing.

“We know there are a lot of European people in Yorktown, from Albanians to Greeks to Irish and Italians,” he said. “My wife and I are of Albanian descent ourselves, and every time we wanted to find European food, we had to go down to the Bronx. So we decided to open up a store up here.”

That store is the newly opened G&G Euro Market & Cafe, a cozy little spot tucked away along Crompond Road. Inside, a vast array of meats, cheeses and snacks from across Europe are on display.

“We wanted to serve the community. That’s why we have a lot of different Italian and Turkish and Greek and Irish foods. We serve all different foods from all over Europe.”

Once they’ve finished shopping, customers can then settle down and relax in the market’s bustling coffee bar, where the smells of freshly brewed coffee and pastries intertwine.

G&G Euro Market is located at 2013 Crompond Road, next to Yorktown Pizza & Pasta.

What Is Cambridge Analytica?

Cambridge Analytica is a research organization. Apparently, it is funded by the Mercer family, second only to the Koch brothers on the liberal hit list. Both, through their philanthropy, spend millions on various needy organizations like hospitals. What makes them liberal targets is their funding of various conservative think tanks and candidates. I digress.

The Best of the Best: Albert Capellini

In the spring of 1991, after answering an ad for a judicial race placed in the local Yorktown paper, I was talked into the unenviable position of running for Yorktown councilman as a Democrat in our then solidly Republican town.

Having been a practicing lawyer since 1974, I felt confident about my qualifications for the position of town judge, but being elected to the Town Board was quite ...

‘Sister Act’: A Musical Like Nun Other

Of all the Broadway musicals I’ve seen over the years at Westchester Broadway Theatre, only a handful have elicited the noisily enthusiastic audience response I observed at the recent opening night of “Sister Act.”

There were outbursts of applause in the middle of some numbers, and several clever turns of phrase sprinkled in the dialogue landed squarely, to the delight of big ...

Cleaning the Empty Nest

Part of the shock of being a part-time empty nester is when the kids come back to visit and I have to watch my house transform overnight from a pristine haven of OCD goodness to a place that looks like an explosion happened at Forever 21.

After my kids moved mostly out, I put away whatever tchotchkes they chose to leave behind and then I put on a hazmat suit and cleaned their rooms until they ...

Why Do Kids Hate Math?

Dear Dr. Linda,

I am in second grade and have a problem about math. My teacher just keeps giving me homework and it’s driving me crazy. Because she keeps giving it to me on weekends and spring and summer breaks. And it’s only one level and it’s too hard. But the other people who have special needs get to be moved into a higher or lower group and they learn even more because ...
