Upon the demise of Nina's 2 I had experienced a sad gap of not having a local default pizzeria for straight slices. Now I did go to Sal's Pizzeria (located at 544 Lorimer St) and they did have some great grandma slices (and I will be returning) but their plain slices were more on the average.
So a friend who use to live in the hood then recommended San Marco to me and I have to say that I was very pleased. Make no mistake this isn't high end coal oven goodness, but good old fashioned slices. I'll have to make a few trips back to further explore their menu, but my understanding is that the pasta is worth checking out and that their killer secret is a high quality cappuccinos.

It's also always mazing to me how much more high end the commuters looks on the line, it's always much more of a hipster fashion show event.

For about a week now I've been seeing these flyers all around my neighborhood on every corner. On one sign (which I didn't take a picture of) there was another flyer asking about a person who may have been seen with Milo the missing Yorkie (a guy with a tattoo on his neck dressed up as a UPS man or something like that). What angers me is that somebody would ever steal a dog — first you can tell that Milo means a great deal to his family, and next there are so many dogs waiting for adoption in shelters that it's criminal to not help those poor creatures if you can.
In this follow up flyer below you can see how distressed Milo's family is...
According to this flyer Milo was last spotted around Rodney and South 5th, if anybody has any clues please call 917.224.0088.
