RE: Mastro Pizza
Can you believe 40 years have passed? Yes, I remember Mastro pizza. Had no money to get into the fair, so I snuck in under the fence along the Long Island Expressway. Pizza at Mastro Pizza was only 25 cents a slice, possibly more toward the end of the fair. For years I have been trying to find a pizza joint to replicate the product put out by Mastro, and the closest I have found is by the mini-chain of Little Vincent's in Lake Ronkonkoma and Huntington, Long Island, New York.
Two years ago, I found a few web sites devoted to the 64-65 New York World's Fair. One of the contributors was Mr. Vincent S. Mastro, son of Vincent Mastro, owner of Mastro pizza at the time. Vinent S. Mastro's father died at a very early age, probably causing Mastro Pizza to go out of business. His web contibutions were enormous, including streaming video of a slide show shown at the Mastro Pizza pavilion. I never copied the URL's, but these sites have info on Mastro:
Vincent S. Mastro also posted on this forum under the screen name of vangelo:
This is now a registration-required website, and I have not been back since.
Hopefully Vincent S. Mastro will find his way to this forum.
