Assemblyman Anthony D’Urso recognized John Cinciripini, age 83, who is retiring after 46 years as proprietor of his tailor shop at 1 Grace Ave. in Great Neck Plaza.

“It was an honor to recognize an individual who has contributed so much to the Great Neck community,” said Assemblyman D’Urso. “I enjoyed connecting with Mr. Cinciripini over our shared Italian heritage.”

Cinciripini immigrated to the United States at a young age and began his apprenticeship as a tailor at 12 years old. After mastering his craft, he went on to work at a shop in Hempstead and later opened his store in Great Neck Plaza. Cinciripini has raised three daughters, Grace, Denise and Nancy and a son, Daniel, and has been a loving grandfather to two grandchildren. He now resides in Franklin Square with his wife, Paola.
