specifically, I'm looking for a place that sells replacement gaskets for stovetop espresso makers.

Ordering online is ridiculous - they all seem to come packaged with the metal filter, which rarely needs replacing. I used to buy them individually in a coffee shop when I lived in Park Slope for like a buck a gasket... I stocked up the last time I visited, but now I'm out. Any suggestions for places in Lower Westchester that might sell them (Sound Shore ideally)?

Go down to Arthur Ave in the Bronx. It's not that far. There are several shops down there that sell everything in the world having to do with expresso makers.

I second that suggestion. It is a stone throw from lower Westchester, and there are are a number of shops that will have exactly what you need or are looking for. Most of them are located directly on Arthur Avenue or on 187th street (the two streets cross over each other).

Thanks. Actually, I haven't been to Arthur Ave in ages, so it would be a fun little food outing. And yes, you're right it's quite close by.

Love doing food shopping there. We go there frequently.
Casa Mozzarella......delicious homemade cheese.
Borgatti's ....delicious homemade pasta's
Maddonia brothers bakery....excellent Italian bread
Egidio Bakery...IMO best cheesecake
Biancardi's Butcher....fresh and good quality meat
Overall, can't beat the selection and quality of the food in that little hub of the neighborhood.
Now, I am hungry.LOL..

McNulty's on Christopher Street in Manhattan carries those too. I know that's not lower Westchester!

Just curious - why such shops (and many others) don't open in Westchester? Its always the Bronx, Queens and Manhattan of course. Actually, I would expect more wealthy customers interested in gourmet everything in Westchester.

Wrong question, at least in the case of Arthur Ave. The question is "why aren't there any old school ethnic neighborhoods with all the stuff that you'd expect in such a neighborhood?" Those things are restaurants, community, churches and SHOPS. If you disregard the places like Balducci's, those "gourmet shops" are just regular places used by the locals. Arthur Ave is just one example. There's Chinatown, all the Indian shops near Bellvue and Koreatown in Flushing.

OTOH, did you mean "Why isn't there a Balducci's in Westchester?" There is. In Scarsdale. Go figure.

Also you may just have to look more closely - they may not be big name nor interent savvy. In our village there is a premier smoked-fish producer, an excellent fresh pasta maker (and soups too) - you can see the guys making it right there from the counter - and an old school Italian deli who make a bunch of there own stuff and are also packed with imported Italian specialties. All are low key and not so easy to find. being relatively new to the area, we found them by being observant when walking around town and recommendations from older residents.
