THE fat lady has sung: Belle Via, the beloved Long Island City coal fired pizza restaurant on the corner of Vernon Boulevard and 48th Avenue has closed for good. There is a “For Rent” sign on the front and all the outdoor sheds have been removed.

//EGGS, eggs, eggs, eggs, eggs – the 2022 Easter Egg Hunt at Gantry Plaza State Park is back on. We’ve documented this happening / over the decade / in a manner that has been described as Hemingwayesque, . But if you only want the details of the event then here we go: Saturday, April 16th at Gantry Plaza State Park from 10am til Noon.
Wait, as any veteran (parent) of this ‘scene’ and followers of LICtalk know, you must register for the hunt in advance, and registration opens on Wednesday, April 6 at 10am at the link below.
