Brooklyn's Grimaldi's Pizza Gets Pushed Out by Landlord
Everybody's got landlord problems at some point, and right now the famous Grimaldi's Pizza in Brooklyn has them too. AFP's Sebastian Smith has the story:
The world of pizza in New York is in meltdown over who will be the big cheese on one of the Big Apple's hottest slices of pizza real estate.
At stake is a corner of Brooklyn under the end of the Brooklyn Bridge that has been ruled for more than a decade by Grimaldi's, an old-world-style pizzeria with crusts as thin as the line of tourists is long, a special oven, and now - a feud.
Grimaldi's troubles began with disputes between the Ciolli family who own the restaurant and the landlord over rental payments and taxes. This year the landlord refused to renew the lease.
