Tommaso Izzo, who owned 3 Sons for over 40 years, gave his keys and his blessing to two new owners. The two new owners, and brothers, are excited and energized to maintain the same warm atmosphere, hot pizza, and look forward to revamping the restaurant into a Queens destination.

The new owners of 3 Sons are super excited for the chance to serve the Maspeth and surrounding communities,” said Joe, an employee of 3 Sons (now WB Pizza Restaurant) for over 15 years.

“WB Pizza Restaurant would like to thank Maspeth, Middle Village, & all of Queens for Welcoming WB Pizza Restaurant into your Community. We look forward to serving you for the next 30 years,” said the new owners, who are scheduled to sit down with the Queens Ledger Newspaper to tell their full story.

Apparently, an emergency situation has the city shutting off the water supply to hundreds in Maspeth this morning, Thursday, May 17th, for just today.

We’re not sure how long it will last, but at the Community Board 5 meeting last night, it was reported that some of the homes in the area between 69th Street, Jay Avenue, 53rd Avenue and 66th Street will not have water today.

We wish they would have given us the report yesterday morning when they knew about it so we could give you guys fair warning, but nonetheless, here it is.
