After 20 years at 208 Columbus (between 69th & 70th), UWS pizza fixture Rigoletto is relocating elsewhere in the neighborhood. They’re moving nearby, into the former Red Velvet Bakery space at 141 W. 72nd, between Amsterdam & Columbus.

Granted, that’s across all their locations and not just the UWS outpost, but still… Now I know why I have [...]
