Pizza Review Page - John's Pizza

POST #    513

Earlier this month, between openhousenewyork events, Audrey, some guest reviewers, and I stopped by John's Pizza for some food. While there, we reviewed it for our Pizza Review Page, as part of our continuing efforts to review the pizza in New York. I finally finished up the review for the site today and it's now up on the pizza page.

John's has a special place in my heart as one of the pizza places that I grew up with. The location is quite close to where I used to live, making it a great place for my family to pick up some pizza or head over for some quality pizza. Unfortunately, the quality of the pizza has slipped and is not as good as I remembered.

Thanks to our guest reviewers, Ingrid, Jess, and Rachelle and thanks to Rachelle for going back to snap a picture of the exterior.

well, i haven't watched the local news recently, but in the ny times, today, on the front page and above the fold, this story ran.

it also said this about julian and cuyamaca:
Julian was also threatened from the northwest, where a wall of fire at least 50 feet high jumped across a winding mountain road and thundered up the hill, taking by surprise a group of firefighters, sheriff's deputies and journalists, forcing them to retreat rapidly.

Officials estimated that about 200 houses had been destroyed around Julian, a mining town that retains much of its Old West character. The three-block-long center of town, 60 miles inland and at an elevation of more than 4,000 feet, remained intact Wednesday afternoon, guarded by a dozen fire engines and their crews, who parked along Main Street.

Every business was closed, and all the residents had long since fled. But as of late Wednesday afternoon, the fire lines had largely held.

The firefighter who was killed, and those who were injured, were in their truck about five miles outside of Julian when the wind shifted and they were overtaken by the flames, a San Diego sheriff's department spokesman said. The firefighter who died was on loan from the Novato Fire Department in Northern California.

South of Julian, the lakeside town of Cuyamaca was almost wiped out late Tuesday. Only the fire station and city hall remained standing. Witnesses reported seeing charred cows lying by the side of the road and cottages reduced to heaps of ash.
