My father, Joseph DeCandia, was born in Bari, Italy and came to America in 1956 at the age of 18.
He took odd jobs as a dishwasher, a baker and a butcher. In 1958 he took a job at "Lenny's Pizza" in Brooklyn on 86th Street where he started to learn the pizza business. A year later he went to work at "Lenny's Pizza" on Nostrand Avenue which he later purchased in 1960. I realized while working alongside my father that together with hard work, great food, good service and his personal attention what truly can be attributed to Lenny's popularity and fame was him inviting people into his restaurant by saying "Ask for Joe and get a free glass of wine on the house."

"It was a mess," said Joe De Candia, owner of Lenny's Clam Bar.
The restaurant lost power for about three weeks, but De Candia said they immediately started making repairs, which were paid for out-of-pocket. After the power returned it took another two weeks before they had a partial reopening. "We were limping but we were able to reopen," De Candia said. But because of Sandy, Lenny's was able to come back bigger and better. The gym next door, Better Bodies Fitness for Women, wasn't able to rebuild so De Candia bought the property and expanded the restaurant and added a party room. He also shifted the bar to make it bigger. Joe De Candia, who inherited Lenny's Clam Bar from his parents, says the well-known establishment on Cross Bay Boulevard tries to keep with original recipes while keeping up with the times. "I think it's location," said De Candia in reference to what makes Lenny's so popular. "We're a landmark here in the area. We give a good meal and we're reasonably priced." While Lenny's gets a lot of attention from people outside of Howard Beach, De Candia is invested in the community. Having lived in the neighborhood for 49 years, going to school and raising his kids here, he has tried to give back to the area in a number of ways. He has actively taken part in the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) and organizes an annual walk in Howard Beach to raise money and awareness for the disease. Joe De Candia, who owns Lenny's, said there had been consistent crowds around the bar area during Euro Cup games. After Spain scored its second goal Sunday, July 1, the mood died down "like a balloon deflated," he said.

Joe DeCandia, owner of Lenny's Clam Bar, was back in business less than a month after the storm.
He worked practically around the clock on repairs. Now, he said, the popular eatery along with most of the boulevard is in good shape. "We're doing pretty good," he said. "We're up and running.
