Yonah Schimmel was a Romanian rabbi who gained notoriety in the 1890s for the potato and kasha dumplings — known as knishes — he sold on the Lower East Side from a pushcart. By 1910 he'd opened this storefront on Houston Street, over the years serving the Eastern European specialty to locals, politicians, cops, and notables like Eleanor Roosevelt, Barbara Streisand and Woody Allen. Today it's is the only knish bakery left in Manhattan, still run by Mr. Schimmel's family.
