WILLIAMSBURG - Officials have shuttered Motorino, a popular pizzeria in Williamsburg, after declaring that the building the eatery is located in is unsafe.

Inspectors say the building is detached from other buildings and starting to lean over.

While repairs may take at least a month before the pizzeria reopens, the company is trying to look out for its 30 employees by trying to find them temporary employment while the repairs are completed.
