After half a century, the pizza shop has now suddenly closed – leaving many feeling the loss. One hilarious tweeter called out the current pizza crisis:
RIP Larusso and now Frankie’s Pizza. This has been a devastating few months in Astoria. HOW WILL I NOURISH MYSELF…???????

Another tweeted a picture of the sign hanging outside the door – trapped behind the now permanent gates:
ASTORIA — Whoa. Holy crap. Frankie’s Pizza on 31st Street near 23rd Avenue is closed. 50 years. pic.twitter.com/dnWVoytZqy

Frankie’s will be missed. We’re sad to see another neighborhood staple go.
