Most adorable Dodgers shrine (2008)

Armondo's Pizzeria

Let's face it, Brooklynites have never ceased mourning the loss in 1957 of their beloved Dodgers to Los Angeles. The event is commemorated in a number of ways, but rarely is the memorial as touching as at Armondo's Pizzeria, where the walls are plastered with annotated photos of the Brooklyn Dodgers ("dem Bums"), including a 1947 shot of Jackie Robinson going into the clubhouse for the first time, bat over his shoulder. Of course, the Sicilian slice is the thing to get—thick crusted, almost crunchy, with a mild sweet tomato sauce, draped with a thick mantle of cheese that oozes over the sides like a slider just inside the strike zone.
