"It’s enough for me to be sure that you and I exist at this moment" - Gabriel García Márquez
Ahem: The Isle of Man? Look at it, overlooked and forlornly purple, when in fact it’s not part of Ireland, Scotland, England, or Wales, and is not claimed by any of them. Nor is it part of the UK (though it is a Crown Protectorate).
A Tale of Two Pizzas:
At 19 Old Fulton Street, with the red awning, Juliana’s (formerly Grimaldi’s, formerly Patsy Grimaldi’s, formerly Patsy’s) bakes coal-fired, brick oven pizza under the Brooklyn Bridge. The location is once again owned and operated by Patsy Grimaldi (who sold the licensing of his name somewhere in the deep past of the tangled history of New York pizza*) and names his new restaurant Juliana’s for his late mother.
At N°1 Front Street in the handsome white building on the corner is Grimaldi’s, which moved from the location now operated as Juliana’s (by Patsy Grimaldi) after the owners, the Ciolli family, had a protracted falling out with the landlord over rent and city taxes. Grimaldi’s bakes coal-fired, brick oven pizza under the Brooklyn Bridge.
*Alright, it was 1998 and he sold to Frank Ciolli
