A couple of weeks ago a friend of mine heard a rumor that LA Pizza on Manhattan Ave was closing. I didn’t mention it because truth be told, I didn’t believe it. Plus, I was in vacation mode ready to leave and didn’t have a chance to verify it. But today I got an email from reader Don Jones:
I just wanted to pass along to you some sad news. L and A Pizza on Manhattan Ave has closed. They must have been there for 35+ years. The owners were great and I am very sad as I am sure many other Greenpointers are that they closed. I grew up eating pizza there at least twice a week. I cannot wait for another Dollar store to come in. George’s is gone, St Anthony’s school, L&A, next will be the Donut shop.
Man, this just sucks.
