Joined by business leaders and the Myrtle Avenue BID, Comptroller Scott stringer toured the shops along Myrtle Avenue last week.
His first stop was Joe & John’s pizzeria, where he got a regular slice.
As he was chowing down the fresh slice, he noted that he was eating with his hands, not with a fork and knife – a not-so-subtle dig at the current mayor, who was famously photographed eating pizza with utensils.
Stringer then visited Tasty Diner, but didn’t order anything. He stopped at the retail store Pants Pantry, where he was intrigued by a red suit.
His final stop was Rudy’s Bakery & Cafe.
The comptroller made the quick visit as part of a daylong trip to Queens, meeting with local stakeholders and visiting two senior centers in Ridgewood.
