2011_08_comtes.jpgThe Times Neighborhood Joint column today focuses on Conte’s Market, a butcher shop and grocery at 89th Street and York Avenue that offers "whiff of the past," in old Yorkville. Led by actor Dominic Chianese (Uncle Junior in the Sopranos) a group of men play music around a card table there every Friday from 10 AM to noon, playing "opera, country and American standards — all as emblematic as ribbons at a parade."
