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.
