There's a lot of history at this address. Artichoke Basille's wrote:

Growing more Artichokes in the Garden State. Coming soon to Red Bank, NJ! And for all you Springsteen fans out there- Artichoke Pizza in Red Bank is opening up in the same space which used to be the “Off Broad Street Coffee House.” This is the same place a 19-year old Bruce Springsteen played one of his first performances in 1968.

Cousins and best friends, Francis Garcia and Sal Basille are fourth-generation restaurateurs.

What started as a single location in New York City’s East Village in 2008, Artichoke Basille’s Pizza has expanded to twelve hugely successful locations across the country.

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
