De Blasio’s Pizza Fork Sold for $2,500 in Charity Sale

NEW YORK (AP) -

The results of an auction just might put a fork in the mini-flap over Mayor Bill de Blasio’s decision to use cutlery to eat pizza at a Staten Island restaurant.

A charity auction website shows the fork that he used sold for $2,500 to an anonymous bidder. The item fetched six bids in an online auction that ended Friday.

Proceeds will benefit the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation, which helps first responders and wounded soldiers.

The winning bidder gave the fork back to the pizzeria where de Blasio had his infamous pizza without using his hands.

“It’s a nice piece of New York history to have,” pizzeria co-owner Marc Cosentino said.
