Lots Of Recycled Furniture At Pizzeria Stella — Is Stephen Starr Going Green?

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.
