Grimaldi's // Pizza in Brooklyn

As a native New Yorker, I consider it a birthright to be opinionated about local pizza.

After having done the appropriate research (25 years of NY pizza eating), I feel I can say with certainty that some of the very best pies come from Grimaldi’s in Brooklyn.

Their brick oven pies (no slices!) are world famous, so the lines can be incredibly daunting, sometimes stretching nearly to the East River (not an exaggeration!). If possible, I would highly suggest avoiding the line entirely (without revealing my secrets, let’s just say it helps to have Grimaldi’s on speed dial).

The walls are covered with photos of celebrities and politicians – Michelle Obama even popped in for a slice on my last visit. Though they have other locations, none of them gives off the same feeling of authenticity than the original location in Brooklyn has (that their spot is literally under the Brooklyn Bridge doesn’t hurt, either).

Definitely a must for any pizza lover!

Grimaldi's
19 Old Fulton St
Brooklyn, NY 11201

So, here's my weekend in Bandung!

    Shake well and apply to fabric. Blot out excess using a paper towel. Create your design using Inkofilm or anything that casts a shadow. Expose to sunlight or bright UV light for 10-20 minutes or until color reaches full saturation. Machine wash using Inkowash to remove unexposed dye. Double your exposure time in overcast weather. Enjoy the "wow" result!

    Fresh from the Lab: 1990

    A weekend without a lomowalk seems bad, at least for me. One Saturday morning, I decided to join my friends in their lomowalk. It was all cloudy at first but it didn't stop me from going out and walking. I brought my new Nikon FM2 and some expired rolls, just to test my camera. Was it just me being sleepy, or was my Nikon FM2 acting up? My photos turned out grainy, pale, and, in my opinion, looking so 1990s?

    Transient Living: Armitage & McMillan in Denver, Colorado

    If you want to know the heart of a person, peek inside his/her wardrobe! And no, nobody famous said that; I only just made it up. But really, don't you think it's true? After all, the way we dress screams our personality; at least for most of us. And that is why, as soon as I land on a new city, one of the things I absolutely must do is find the local boutiques. Sure, I love the fancy chain boutiques as much as the next person, but there's just something else about a local clothing store. It's unique!

    Summer Hot Spots: Blaavand, Denmark (Part One)

    When I was a child, I regularly went to Blaavand located at the Danish west coast with my brothers and my parents. However, I didn't anymore when I grew up. But in 2012, we hit the road again. It was my first visit there in about 20 years. I took the chance and packed as many cameras as possible into my luggage. In this article, I'm going to present to you the photos I took with my Nikon F-501 SLR.
