An Astoria pizzeria that has been in business for 50 years has closed.
The operators of Frankie’s Pizza, which is located at 22-56 31st Street, left a note in the window that read:
Thank you for your loyalty and support after 50 years of business– Frankie’s Pizza is closing!
News of the development spread quickly via twitter.
The pizzeria had served generations of residents.
One Yelp reviewer wrote last December that he “loved going here [Frankie’s] as a kid in the 70s, and I hung out here as a teenager in the 80s….I had been away for a while, but I came back there in the late 90s or early 00s.”
ASTORIA — Whoa. Holy crap. Frankie’s Pizza on 31st Street near 23rd Avenue is closed. 50 years. pic.twitter.com/dnWVoytZqy
