Totonno’s, the family-run institution in Coney Island that has been dealing hot pies since 1924, is headed for the exits one way or another. The pizzeria announced on its website on Wednesday that it was looking for a buyer or investor, explaining to the New York Times, “We’re coming up in age and we don’t have the manpower to continue.”

The sentiment is reminiscent of the one expressed by Lenny’s in Bensonhurst, which shuttered last year after 70 years in the business.

Totonno’s announcement hardly comes as a surprise. Last year the restaurant revealed that its focus would be selling its pizzas frozen.
