    Hey folks! Wonderful news for Pizza’s fans. Just wanna share a great place where you can enjoy a marvelous lunch and dinner in Gaby's. A family-run and owned since 1964, it's like a long Italian family story. There, you can feel the Italian atmosphere and wonderful music enjoying it with a piece of the fabulous pizza. The menu is full of delicious Italian food, so it could be hard to choose one of them. I could advise you to order Napoletana, which is one of the most famous types of Italian pizza and for a drink you can order beer, because Pizza and Beer are a classic combo and you can't go wrong by pairing them two. The most interesting and dynamic period for visiting the restaurant is, of course, from 08:00 pm, because live entertainment starts at that time. Don’t miss to visit them… Sharing a delicious part of my trek. Mmmm ... OMG, I'm in heaven…

    • I'm I invited to try 😋
  • I had no idea that Holliswood was a hot spot in the roaring twenties. So Holliswood was bought by Frederick Dunton in 1884. He had an entire mansion built for himself on the street he named after HIMSELF (Dunton St.) called Hollis Hall! After Frederick Dunton died, it was turned into a speakeasy called Brown’s chophouse! This was during the Prohibition era, of course. I wonder how Frederick Dunton felt about that! Lol. It was torn down after prohibition though, so there’s no way to look at it 🥺 I wonder if there are any legends in the area about it still!

  • I think I’m just gonna give up. New York really has it all 💀 I’m not playing. There’s an actual monastery in Jamaica Estates. With real live monks. It looks like someplace you’d see in Italy or a period movie! It’s called The Passionists Monastary, and wait for it, they’ve been here since 1852. It’s just a regular church, I know that. But I thought monks were something from a past time, you know? Anyways, it is a gorgeous building if you want to check it out!

  • Look. New York is known for its pizza. Everyone has their "spot," but I'm partial to Gaby's. It's family-run and owned since 1964, so you really know that they know what they're doing. Their pies and dishes come from their family's traditional and passed-down Italian recipes. It's not like $1 slice pizza that you're like, "Oh, this is good." No, this is the real deal. When people talk about a New York Slice, they're talking about Gaby's. Seriously do yourself a favor and pop by!
