Esposito's & Sons is an old-fashioned meat market in Hell's Kitchen. They've been around since 1933.
Esposito's supposedly sells 10,000 lbs of sausage every week to nearby restaurants. I haven't shopped here, but the online reviews are terrific.

The few blocks south of the Port Authority Bus Terminal at 42nd Street is still a little sketchy. The people hanging out on the street corners look like they are up to no good. I wouldn't say that it's unsafe, but I would not attempt to take candids there, for fear of offending people.
