The elusive Westchester pizza graffiti artist has made a mark (or two) in Larchmont.
A slice of pizza was painted outside Nicky’s Pizza on the North Avenue side of the building. The graffiti artist has painted slices at four other pizzerias throughout Westchester, including locations in Pelham, Tuckahoe and New Rochelle. Nicky’s staff says they love the artwork and do not wish to pursue charges if the mysterious tagger is caught. No idea if the artist has actually eaten pizza there.
He’s in Mamaroneck, too. Jimmy’s Pizza got the tag, too.
Meanwhile, police continue a crackdown in Willow Park in the Manor where some dog owners dare to allow their pets to roam without a leash. After receiving several complaints from one neighbor who called several days in a row, Larchmont Police have begun early morning patrols and are warning dog owners.
In Mamaroneck, the very popular Don Jito’s restaurant on Mamaroneck Avenue was closed after a fight broke out during which Village of Mamaroneck Police called for police assistance from Village of Larchmont and Town of Mamaroneck. The Village of Mamaroneck Building Department forced the closing of the restaurant after citing several violations.
