I know many people will disagree with me, they will say that he has a monopoly etc, but Benabou knows how to turn a business around. Finally, there will be a decent pizza store in crown heights. I personally can’t wait to see what he will do with it.

Shluchim
Guest

I want to wish Shloime Lehrer Hatzlacha. As out-of-towners you always knew you’d be welcomed by a genuinely friendly & warm shop keeper and delicious pizza & homemade fries. If you were short a dollar you said to put it into Tzedakah. Know that you will be sorely missed and were always a definite destination on all visits to Crown Heights.
Hopefully the new owner will be able to follow in your ways…food was always delicious & service was consistently courteous!

We will really miss Kingston Pizza!! Whenever we would come into Crown Heights that was one of my “can’t miss stops”! Being that we can’t eat the pizza where we live we really relished getting your pizza with a BaDatz hechsher! And the breakfast menu and the price can’t be beat! Much hatzlacha to Shloime on your future endeavors, and thanks for being such a mentsch! I also hope that the employees will stay with the new pizza venture – they were always so nice, too! Wish we were there to have a pizza now!!

I REMEMBER WHEN !
Guest
I REMEMBER WHEN !

For those interested in a bit of nostalgic history of Pizza Shops in Crown Heights : The first Pizza store in Crown Heights (and if I am not mistaken-the first in New York ) was named “Chaims Pizza” and opened about 1962-63 and was located on Nostrand Ave. between Montgomery and Crown Sts. Not long after that two Pizza stores called Chopsie & Naftali opened,one located on Utica & Crown and the other on Kingston off Empire. Next came R’Zalmen Tornek’s Pizza store on Kingston near Crown ( about the early 70’s ). Then came the Pizza store on Kingston… Read more »
