LOCATION: Lucia Pizza (13655 Roosevelt Ave B, Flushing, NY 11354)
GUEST(S): Catherine Wing, Bill Buckendorf
ORDER: 1 slice of cheese
A quick slice of New York. Since 1962, Lucia Pizza has been serving up the New York street slice in Flushing, Queens it helped to define. With just five stools at a greasy counter and a walk-up window, this grab-and-go slice joint makes no attempt at fine dining. Instead, all of the effort is focused on getting large oil-rich, sauce-heavy slices into the hands of the clamoring masses. This no frills approach has kept the cost of this convenient, portable and filling product beneath the cost of a subway fare (one of the benchmarks of a quintessential New York street slice). If you are in the vicinity of Flushing’s Main Street and have a hankering, grab a slice of Lucia Pizza, fold it, devour it. Enjoy and repeat.
