Fresh suckling pig -where to buy?

Where can I find a fresh suckling pig - the 12-16 pound variety - not the larger pigs - in Manhattan? I'm assuming that the Hispanic population roast a lot of pigs for their special events? Which butchers are they using? Please be specific - name and address if you have it, Thanks!

      just a sure to specify the size that you want and not just "suckling pig". I have been offered 20 lb pigs almost every time when I have asked for sucking pigs. A true suckling pig seems hard to find sometimes.

        An old thread, but useful info for anyone finding this later. I did some research and found the following:

        Ottomanelli: $8.99 per pound (3 days advance notice)
        Pino's: $8 per pound (little less for larger pigs - 1+ days advance notice)
        Florence: $10 per pound (7 days advance notice)
