We’re sad to report that the Cristoforo Colombo Bakery & Pastry Shop at 6916 18th Avenue has closed. Last week, the staff held an auction of all of the store’s fixtures, according to an anonymous tipster.

The bakery was a neighborhood fixture and well-known for their seeded semolina bread.

Calls to the bakery were not returned.

Goodbye Cristoforo Colombo Bakery, you will be missed.

    Yet another nail in the coffin of “Italian” Bensonhurst. Time goes on. Nothing we can do I guess.

    I think the name of that beauty school on 86th and 24th Ave was Ultissima…but I could be wrong…
