Look at how Starr chose to outfit the brand new Pizzeria Stella:
- Reclaimed planks from the Coney Island Boardwalk for the tables inside.
- Reclaimed folding chairs from the old Philadelphia Civic Center for the outdoor seating.
- Reclaimed chairs from a Pennsylvania elementary school for the tables inside.
More likely emblematic of cost-cutting and time-saving measures than anything else — a) they got this recession on and b) at five months, this was one of Starr’s fastest openings to date — however, it’s nonetheless cool to see.
Moreover, Starr was an early Obama supporter, so we take that to mean he likes to be green whenever he can.
