No, it's not painted green and it doesn't sell green muffins. This old-school bakery in NYC's East Village is green because of the way it's been overhauled, as completely safe for the environment. Now being dubbed the "Birdbath" Bakery, it was recently re-opened with only organic materials inside (including the food of course). Think cork floors, plywood made of bamboo, recycled wallpaper and paint made of milk. Wanna stop by? Addy is 223 First Avenue (south of 14th Street) if you're in the neighborhood.
