Patsy's Pizza

Best pizza in Harlem. This place has been open for many years.

I moved to East Harlem in the early 50's and my dad worked in the restaurant as a dish washer. I think it was his first job when he arrived from Puerto Rico.

I visited Patsy's Pizza Jul 3, 2007 and had me a slize of pizza. When we were kids a slice was 25 cents. I think I paid $1.00 or more for a slice. Whatever it was it was worth it.

Rex Icy closed up. I think he served his last icy sometime last year.
He served the best ICY in the neighborhood. My favorite which I know I will never find another icy like his was "Lilly With Nuts". I went to the Icy place in Corona Queens and the now call it "Almund" but it's not the same as Rex's good old Lilly with Nuts.

Rex wherever you are I wish you the best in your retirement. I hope you join the East-Harlem gang on this website. We sure would love to hear from you and those memories of yesterday that made this website what it is today.

Martha from Miami
