Your 99-cent pizza update on Avenue A



As a reminder (way back to March 11), a 99-cent pizza slice emporium is in the works for 131 Avenue A between St. Mark's Place and Ninth Street.

The space is shaping up, as these photos via EVG 99-cent pizza slice emporium correspondent Steven show...



This must be a successful business model: This will be the third 99-cent pizza shop on Avenue A between Houston and Ninth Street, joining Alphabet 99-Cent Fresh Pizza and 99¢ Pizza. (There's also FDR 99¢ Slice Pizza just off of A on Second Street.)

[Updated] Two new quick-service options for Houston and Allen: pizza and gyros



Grand opening signage is up at Empire Gyro on the southeast corner of Allen and Houston ... the quick-serve, 24/7 spot makes its debut on Monday. They'll be serving a variety of gyros and shawarma plates ... as well as burgers, salads and soups.

Meanwhile, a few storefronts away on East Houston ... the doors were open at the under-renovation storefront next to the Army-Navy store...



... the space will be a cheap-slice pizzeria...

The 99-cent pizza place opened yesterday...

Joey Pepperoni looking closed on 1st Avenue



The Joey Pepperoni $1 pizza outpost on First Avenue between 13th Street and 14th Street appears to be closed for good. There's a space for rent sign above the $1 on the marquee... the phone number is also out of service.

This location opened in August 2012, and lasted nearly four years longer than some people anticipated. (The storefront was on the market back in the fall of 2014.)

If this is a permanent closure, then it appears that the Great $1 Pizza War of First Avenue is officially over. Many $1s were lost during this challenging time in which we witnessed multiple sidewalk sandwich boards … the introduction of $1 drafts… and the legendary dancing pizza menu woman.

With JP's closure, along with the July 2014 departure of the 2 Bros. Pizza next door, Vinny Vincenz can have the block back again. (There's still nearby cheap slice competition with Papa John's a block away.)

The Joey Pepperoni closed on 14th Street on IHOP Way in February 2014.

H/T Michael Ivan!

[Updated] Reader report: The 2 Bros. Pizza on 1st Avenue has apparently closed



EVG reader Michael Hirsch spotted workers hauling out the ovens from the dismantled $1 pizzeria between East 13th Street and East 14th Street.

There isn't an official word of a closure just yet.

This 2 Bros. branch opened in February 2013, much to the dismay of next-door neighbor Vinny Vincenz, who has been here for 11 years now. In respond to 2 Bros.'s arrival, Vinny's started offering $1 slices.

For now, it looks as if Vinny's has won this battle…

Updated 7-20

One reader said that a worker on the scene said they were merely remodeling the space.

Oh and another $1 (99 cent) pizza choice for the East Village



This one just opened at 71 Second Ave. near East Fourth Street.

An aside, kinda: Any idea why the fresh is so small on the sign?

The space was previously home to the Cool Gear shop.

And then there was one Joey Pepperoni's (within a few blocks of each other)



The Joey Pepperoni's location on IHOP Way East 14th Street between Second Avenue and Third Avenue has apparently closed, Eater first noted yesterday.

This JPP popped up quickly back in November 2012, turning over an AT&T Store in about two hours.

Meanwhile, the business next door made sure to capitalize on the new-found cheap-pizza void on this side of the street…



JPP fans can still visit the Joey Pepperoni's on First Avenue between East 13th Street and East 14th Street, a location that was alive and well last night along with the other nearby $1 pizza options.

JPP on East 14th Street likely won't be the last $1 pizza casualty. We don't want to speculate on who might be next, but you can!

Important questions of our time



When did Joey Pepperoni on First Avenue start serving breakfast? And tacos? And wings? (We hadn't noticed!)

Also, has anyone tried any of the non-$1 pizza items?

Anyway. Just the latest (or not) development in the grim First Avenue $1 pizza wars.
