Hey Heather,
Thought I’d send you a local restaurant update. Not sure when this happened, but passed Vertuccios on Tuesday night, and well…. it looks like Vertuccio’s is no more. ¬†Instead, we’re getting Park Place Wine Bar & Restaurant.

Perhaps this means that neon sign will be taken down?

Vertuccio’s Pizza installed a neon sign today, next to their spy cam, right across from the Green Dome garden.¬† It is time for them to take both down and leave.

My knee jerk reaction to this (after cringing, that is) was to check the Department of Buildings to see if they has a permit for this sign. Sure enough, they do. What I found particularly intriguing was this passage in said permit:

Not knowing offhand about how big McCarren Park is, I decided to consult Google Maps. Vertuccio’s location (232 North 12 Street) is indicated with an “A”.

For those of you who are not in the know an acre is 43,560 square feet. Hmm…
