Hi folks. A little late to join this I know. But the Cici in Cici's Pizza (the local owned store in Point Pleasant NOT the chain) was my dad's uncle. This picture was recently posted on my family's Facebook group (apparently the site is now a Dell Store).
I grew up on Long Island, so I never remember going there, but have heard the stories. Apparently before they hit the big time, the Four Seasons played Martel's on the boardwalk regularly. They would come into the pizzeria to have dinner before going on.
It's been a long time since, I came back to this site. This is a great photograph, of you and your friends in front of the now defunct CiCi's Pizza, on the Point Pleasant boardwalk. Thanks for posting the photo of the place.
CiCi's Pizza, was gutted by fire. The result was an electrical fire in their basement and, it was ruled accidental. Tommy has owned the restaurant for 36 years, on the boardwalk. The fire was discovered by joggers at 5:30 am and, a half hour later the fire was underway to be extinguished.
The date of the incident was discovered on February 5, 1990.
Recently, I came across an article about it and, that was the reason why it was boarded up.
Now, Joey's Tomatoes remain's a hit to this day on its former spot.
Everyone has enjoyed eating there and I bet it was a sad chapter in everyones lives, year in year out.
RIP CiCi's Pizza 1954-1990.
