According to eyewitnesses, AJ's Pizza has indeed closed for good. No answer at speed dial mainstay 718-520-9018 and doors are locked this Tuesday evening. But no sign acknowledging anything. Employees at the card store next door confirm closing and say they heard it was going to be a Chinese restaurant. Much more to come. . .
6/11 Update: Metal gates are indeed down, but some commenters are saying that they're taking a vacation. You would think they would have someone able to run the joint or post something on the gate itself - or at the very least spring for an answering machine to tell people when they are reopening. So maybe AJ's will live to serve another slice.
