GERMANTOWN RESIDENT EXPRESSES CONCERN THAT NEW PIZZA PLACE ON GOSS MAY INSPIRE OTHER GOOD IDEAS

IMG_2442-601x451A few weeks ago Insider Louisville broke the news that a pizza joint would be opening in the VFW on Goss Avenue next to Yesternook.  The upcoming restaurant was conceived by Germantown residents Nash and Laura Neely and plans to feature New York style pizza.  Not everyone’s happy about this new addition to Germantown, though.  I caught up with one of the angry gentlemen from the comments section, Kevin Gray, who wrote: “I can tell you right now that even before you have opened, I will never step foot in your establishment.”

“Look I was a little worked up at the time I wrote that,” says Gray.  “But I’m just a little concerned that people are doin’ something good for Germantown and that’s a slippery slope.”

Gray continued to compare the pizza place to other great restaurants and retail shops that have opened in Germantown over the last two years.

“I’m telling you, this is how it all starts,”  said Gray. “I’m not trying to be a negative nancy, but just watch.  Before we know it, everywhere you look someone’s gonna be trying to do something nice for the neighborhood.”

With Moes, Eiderdown, and Goss Avenue Antiques all going through renovations, people like Gray are getting more and more upset.

“I told my wife the other day, if this doesn’t stop, we’re sellin’ the house,” Gray says, rocking on his Lazy-Boy recliner.  “Danny Mac had a good idea for the neighborhood already. Do we really need two good ideas?”

Gray’s not alone. There were several other commenters, including Nancy, Gray’s wife, that were just as bothered by the recent string of good things for Germantown.

“Look, I read the article,” said Nancy. “The couple opening up the new pizza place came across very nice and they clearly had Germantown’s best interest at heart.  And that’s concerning.”
