Join us in welcoming Alison Cuzzolino to The LP fam. Alison recently joined our board of directors—read our short Q&A to get to know her.
The LP: What is your neighborhood? What’s your favorite thing about it?
Alison Cuzzolino: I live in Prospect Lefferts Gardens, Brooklyn. I love the vibrancy and diversity—and of course the Caribbean food! As another multiracial, multigenerational, and artist-filled Brooklyn neighborhood, PLG shares many elements with The LP’s home of Bed-Stuy that I value so deeply.
LP: What song gets you moving and going when work gets hard?
AC: Lizzo’s Good as Hell. I loved seeing her perform while I worked at PS1’s Warm Up a few years back.
LP: What’s your favorite home-cooked dish?
AC: Hands-down my grandma’s homemade lasagna, followed by her icebox cake for dessert. She’s still going strong at 92, but hung up her apron a while back. I’m grateful to have learned some of her recipes, especially her homemade sauce.
