HALEDON, N.J. — Casa Di Calabria in Haledon has been demolished to make way for new apartments, N orthJersey.com reports.

A deep history runs through the Barbour Street Mexican eatery --formerly Piedmont Restaurant, the article says.

The facility served as a boarding house for Italian immigrants working in the mills in the late 1800s, and was named after the men coming from the Piedmont region, owner Joe Colucci told NorthJersey.com.

Immigrant and chef John Colucci owned the place in the 1960s, the article says. He renovated the kitchen and added a party room and a parking lot, according to NorthJersey.com.

His relatives and offspring have fond memories of manning the restaurant.
