You might be confusing it with the pizza place located between the two stairs on the west side of the Ditmars Station. Rose and Joe's is located at the base of the northwest stairs just north of the newstand. It's a bread and cookie bakery. You have to go to the back of the shop where they have pizza for sale.

Barone's Pizza is located on Main Street in Flushing right next to the LIRR trestle.

 

I've always heard that the reason NY pizza tastes so good is because of the NY water.  NYC water comes from upstate NY & is supposed to be some of the best tasting water in the U.S.

Dear Webguy,

 

I am so disappointed in you.  Don't you know you can't trust things on the internet?  I believe that the lyrics you listed for Pizza Pie have a number of mistakes in them.  For example, line 3 states

 

"And we thought that we would go down down".

 

It should be "And we thought that we would go downtown".

 

I believe that there are other minor errors also.  I will have to search through the garage for my doo-wop collection (this is where it's been since I moved to CA over 30 yrs ago & to San Diego over 25 yrs ago; Californians, especially San Diegans, wouldn't know real doo-wop if it hit them in the face) to find my copy of Pizza Pie.  Then I'll have to hook up the turntable (remember them?) & play the song & listen to the correct lyrics.  Then I'll point out the other errors.  :-)

When you head down the stairs towards 23rd Ave., it's Frankie's Pizza.....Rose & Joe's is down the stairs towards Ditmars and, yes, it is a bakery with the pizza in the back.

 

Happy New Year everyone!!!!!

The place I remember would be Rose and Joe's. I remember a friend stopping at the newstand in the mornings to get a pack of violets candy. He was using them to try to quit smoking. It was right at the bottom of the north west staircase.
Hey Ken, I don't live far from some of those reseviors. The Ashokan, Roundout and Neversink are all in the general area near the jail. After 9/11, they were using CERT teams to guard these places. CERT is the, Corrections Emergency Response Team. The Prison system's equivilant of SWAT, or in New Yorker, ESU.
