The Gracie Mansion Conservancy is a private not-for-profit organization established in 1981 to preserve, maintain, and enhance Gracie Mansion – a 209-year old structure which has been home to New York City Mayors since 1942. The house is a unique and historic landmark which underwent a major restoration in 2002 under Mayor Bloomberg, transforming Gracie Mansion into the “People’s House” with increased accessibility to the public and to City agencies. Gracie Mansion is presently more frequently used than at any other time in its history. In addition to the individuals and civic and community groups who have visited Gracie Mansion, over ten thousand school children have toured the house over the past five years. To support Gracie Mansion’s important uses, The Conservancy raises private funds to preserve and maintain the house.

“Don Luigi Olive Oil: The Fruit of the Vine”

One of the world’s most marketable first cold-pressed extra virgin olive oils ever to line the shelves of Teitel Brothers Wholesale and Retail Grocery Company is Don Luigi Extra Virgin olive oil. Produced and imported from Italy, from the finest olive groves of Sicily, Don Luigi surpasses all other olive oils, from its’ rich, vibrant green color, its’ smooth and silky texture, to its’ aromatic and authentic olive oil taste. Such genuine oil cannot be reproduced or replicated and still be called extra virgin. Only Don Luigi bears the name of such excellent quality extra virgin olive oil; and only Teitel Brothers retains the right to market such an invaluable product under their label. What makes Don Luigi stand out amongst the others? Made from the ripest, most verdant olives from the lush trees of Sicily, Don Luigi olive oil is first cold-pressed to produce the truest extra virgin olive oil, in its’ purest, most natural form. With no additives or artificial flavorings, Don Luigi is one of the most bona-fide olive oils ever created. Use it as dressing to flavor salads, drizzle some over sliced tomatoes and mozzarella for an appetizing starter, add hot pepper flakes for a wondrous bread dip, and simply, grace your dinner table with a bottle.
