Speedy Romeo
Behind every sublime pizza is an equally impressive oven and the one at Speedy Romeo is no exception. Found in Brownstone-laden Clinton Hill, Speedy Romeo is named after one of the owners’ family champion racehorses – you will find his portrait sitting royally atop the wood-burning oven. In this wood-fire vessel, the magic is created that separates this Brooklyn pizzeria from the pack. Built in a former auto-body shop, Speedy Romeo offers a straightforward menu that includes 11 creative Neapolitan-style pies along with a selection of grill items from the majesty of that oven. You won’t make a bad choice when you visit, which is why you will be planning your next visit immediately after taking your first bite.

Something Else on Smith
After delighting your taste buds at Speedy Romeo, take the G train to the Bergen Street stop in beautiful Carroll Gardens. A short 1-minute walk will lead you to Something Else on Smith, which, as the name aptly suggests, is located on Smith Street. If you haven’t been to Smith Street yet, your senses are in for a treat. With the delicious aroma that perfumes the air, the vibrant colors of the independent stores and the area’s quaint architecture, it will motivate you to don your Sunday best. Walk inside Something Else on Smith and find a collection of independently designed crafts, clothing, and goods that will become essential once you peruse the shelves.

Monsignor McGolrick Park
Certain parks are great year-round. I’m sure Central and Prospect Park are at the top of your list. At ELITE, we are eager to unveil the under-the-radar jewels that even native New Yorkers may overlook. One such green space is beautiful Monsignor McGolrick Park in idyllic Greenpoint. While only nine acres, McGolrick certainly punches above its weight, featuring an impressive brick and limestone Beaux-Arts Shelter Pavilion, lush trees, and plenty of benches to enjoy a high-quality coffee from the several nearby coffee shops.
