Pizza per capita
CoastalGypsy joked in a Feb. 11 posting on Apizzo that the Westerly/Pawcatuck area had 59 pizzerias. I did a rough count and came up with 18, which in itself seems rather high for a year-round population of about 25,000. This comes to one pizza joint per approx. 1400 people.
Just curious, is this in line with other areas? (don't even get me started on donut shops!)
There is some hard-core research happening here! I just checked yellowpages.com and saw Westerly lists at least 15 pizza restaurants, Pawcatuck has 8 listed, Charlestown has 5.... so the results are far more frightening than expected (!) We should definitely not venture into donuts or chinese food...
