I Remember Organ Grinder Pizza
by Thomas Newton
I loved your short story of the Organ Grinder. It really took me back.
I grew up in SE Portland and the Organ Grinder was a great place. We would go there after a fun day at Oaks Park or Mt. Scott Park. The upstairs in the Organ Grinder Pizza was for some time part of the arcade as well.
Thank you for doing articles on some of the best parts of the best city ever. My foundest places growing up are now gone. The memories live and we have a kinship to all the original Portlanders...fewer and fewer of us.
