At Christopher and Hudson a small waive of energy washes over me. I'm standing inside of Rivoli Pizza II in February and waiting for two cheese slices, plain slices. Michael Jackson's "Rock with You" plays on the radio. "Love survives," he sings and though I do not dance on the inside I sing along. Later I'm told Rivoli Pizza I stands somewhere along Seventh Avenue near West Twelfth Street –––– different owner, same name.
