I recently moved from queens as well. i was in corona, right under the long island expressway, and i had to move to the O4W on edgewood ave. just to get a little commotion. i do not need a stranger to wave to me on the street, i do not need someone hold up a line of moving traffic so i can cross the street, what i need is 24 hour newsstands where i can buy cigarettes, what i need is a fucking 12 pack on sunday when i am watching the new york football giants. also, the pizza thing is true, and even though everyone has "this one place over by the so-and-so" that has "pretty good pizza" it is rarely even close. it has to do with the differences of in the water. the chattahoochee's rolling mountain water was not meant for pizza, where as the hudson's mercury and raw sewage levels are a serendipitous combination for wafer thin crust (oh, and stop using canned mushrooms and ground sausage). that being said, i love the southern grease belt cuisine, so instead of wasting time trying to emulate the greatest city in world's finest contribution to modern late night eating, someone needs to come up with "atlanta style _____" because a hormone laced chicken breast with two goddamn pickles isn't cutting it. and another reason new yorkers are cool and stoic. we gave up on god awhile a go, the south needs to catch up.
