Elmo's pizza thread...

...at TrekBBS made me nostalgic and homesick for New York. I spent the first ten years of my life eating real New York style pizza (not at all like the Big New Yorker from Pizza Hut). The best place was about two blocks from my house in Staten Island...When I went to New York ten years ago to visit friends, I was sad to learn that it had recently closed. Bugger. Nothing lasts forever. The great Italian ice place near my house is also gone. 

I'm looking forward to the little trip Mom and I are taking more than ever. We'll go to Chinatown for dim sum, take in a show (hopefully Wicked), visit a few friends and get some real pizza. Hell, if there's time, we might even take in a Mets game before they tear down Shea Stadium (if they haven't already!). One thing in S.I. that I know is still there(as of December, anyway) is Alfonso's pastry shop. We'll have to stock up on canolis. *drools*

Damn. I really miss New York. I love the D.C. area, I adored Denver/Boulder, but I'm a New Yorker at heart and always will be (though it's too damn expensive to live there now!). The one thing I'm not looking forward to on this trip is seeing the post-9/11 skyline.

Shea is still there! If you want to see Wicked, you might need to try and get tickets now. Its hard to get into.

Best show ever! Loved Wicked. 2 weeks later, and I'm still listening to the soundtrack over and over again. Can't wait to see it again. Jealous you're gonna see it on Broadway!

I might see it on Broadway. I hope so. :p I might see Spamalot instead, I've heard it's easier to get tickets.

When Wicked came to D.C. last year, the tickets sold out before I could get online. Grr!

yes shea still has some time before the coming of ebbets two.
of the two plays i think i would like spamalot better.
i have heard some music from both plays.
if i ever make it to new york i think i will need several days because there are some museums i really want to see.
