Borough Wide

Italian Americans were feted at a gala hosted by Brooklyn’s other booster, Borough President Markowitz, on Oct. 4 at Borough Hall. The annual “Italian American Heritage Celebrazione” (that’s “celebration” in Italiano (that’s Italian)) celebrates outstanding Italian Brooklynites for their dedication, devotion, and involvement in their communities! What a great combination.

This year’s honorees included primo pasta padron Antonio Miglacccio, owner of Noodle Pudding in Brooklyn Heights, which, as we all know, is the best Italian restaurant with a funny name; Elana Solitario, president and founder of Pilo Arts Day Spa and Salon in Bay Ridge; Carlo Scissura, president of Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce and former aid to the borough president, (it’s not what you know, but who you know); and the School Settlement Association board of directors — John D’Arienzo, Felicia Pecoraro, Margaret Falco, Lisa Bamonte, Vincent Abate, Anthony Menta, Lisa Summa, and Joseph Franquinha.

Standing O says, “It’s good to be a Brooklyn Italian. We’re such a special bunch.”
