L’incontro Hosts ‘69 Mets Great Ed Charles



It was a glorious first weekend of summer at Trattoria L’incontro where Ed Charles, 1969 World Series champion Mets 3rd baseman, “The Glider,” enjoyed dinner with friends Art Loveley, U.S. Marine Corps veteran of the Korean war; Peter Kazanas, owner of the famed and very popular Pizza Haven pizzeria, at 49-42 Broadway at 207th Street, in Inwood; Jack and Nancy Turner of Ocean Grove, New Jersey. Jack was only 14 years old when he attended that 1969 World Series Mets game, sat just behind third base, and saw Ed Charles’ outstanding plays gliding the Mets to victory, and Olga Nikiciuk, Loveley’s attorney. Nikiciuk said, “The evening was great fun, and filled with much joy, love, laughter and great memories for the Glider. God bless Ed Charles, a true gem, a gifted player, and a wonderful person. Let's go Mets! and Many thanks to owner Rocco Sacramone for a being a wonderful host and for the amazing Italian cuisine...grazie!” It was a glorious first weekend of summer at Trattoria L’incontro where Ed Charles, 1969 World Series champion Mets 3rd baseman, “The Glider,” enjoyed dinner with friends Art Loveley, U.S. Marine Corps veteran of the Korean war; Peter Kazanas, owner of the famed and very popular Pizza Haven pizzeria, at 49-42 Broadway at 207th Street, in Inwood; Jack and Nancy Turner of Ocean Grove, New Jersey.
