Conti’s Pastry Shop has been in business for one-hundred years at 786 Morris Park Avenue. Mr. Sal Paljevic has been the owner the past twenty years, and he has kept up the top quality products Conti Pastry Shop is famous for. 

Friday Bronx Borough President candidate City Councilman Fernando Cabrera came to Conti’s to chat for a while with Morris Park Community Association President and Community Board 11 Chair Al D’Angelo, Sal Conforto, Owner of the Bronx Chronicle, Sal Paljevic the owner of Conti’s Pastry shop, and this reporter to talk about community needs.  

Several items were mentioned starting with public safety. Everyone agreed a person must feel safe in their homes and on the streets of their community. Quality of life, good schools, overdevelopment, affordable housing, and mass transit were among the topics discussed during the next borough president’s visit. The Bronx Chronicle as well as Mr. Al D’Angelo have already endorsed Fernando Cabrera for Bronx Borough President, and this reporter has predicted Fernando Cabrera as the next Bronx Borough President after Ruben Diaz Jr.
