Long dog park/run by the railroad tracks. All chips and lots of trees. A terrific spot to let Fido run wild. Check local leashing and licensing laws, though, as there are often patrols checking tags.

Not a bakery in the typical sense, this Afghani restaurant has 'football shaped' pizza that is superb (wait 'til you try the green sauce). Lot of options to-go or eat in. Slow service, but worth wait.

If you love hot dogs, you will love Uncle Franky's! If you love sauerkraut, you will love the Wall Street Dog! If you love fries, you will love their crinkle cut fries! It's a dive, but you can eat in/eat in the parking lot, or get to go (which I never do b/c the bun gets soggy, but that's a personal pref thing!). It's a must-do for those who visit, IMHO!
