If you are going to fundamentally change the question, why limit yourself to NYC? Or even this planet for that matter...

I wasn't necessarily limiting myself to nyc. That said, I wouldn't want to waste any of my last 48 hours on a plane and I certainly wouldn't waste it eating pizza.

  • Pizza is not bread.

In that case, me either. I want to drink myself to death on Romulan ale.

I was always disappointed harry didn't post his favorites. He did eventually post them on another site, I hope he doesn't mind the cross-post here.

My son is working on a political campaign on staten island and asked for our help today, so we're off to stand in the rain and monitor a polling site  :o Still, it will be fun to finally try staten island pizza, one of harry's recommendations is close by.

Manhattan: Plain pie at John's of Bleecker, Half plain/half clam pie or garbage pie at Denino's, Half plain/half pepperoni or vodka pie at Rubirosa, Squares at Rizzo's Fine Pizza, Patsy's in Harlem, long pie at Numero28 in West Village. Slices at NY Suprema, Sacco, Fiore's, P&M Classic Pizza in Harlem, Como Pizza in Washington Heights.

Queens: Slices at New Park Pizzeria, Margherita, Lucia, Amore, Lillian, Dani's. The upside down Sicilian square and a pepperoni pinwheel at Rosa's in Maspeth or Astoria, Grandma slice at Louie's, Sicilian square at Alfie's

Bronx: Sam's Pizza on 232 W. 231st St., Tommy's on Tremont Ave, Louie & Ernie's, Frank's in Country Club, Yankee J-Z Pizza in Soundview, Ivana's Pizzeria in Belmont, Pugley's.

Brooklyn: Squares at L&B Spumoni, DiFara. Slices at Luigi's, Pizza Wagon, Sicilian at J&V Pizzeria.

Staten Island: Joe and Pats/Pier76, Denino's, Lee's Tavern, Mimmo's, the Ciro Special, Sfincione Sicilian pizza at DOUGH

Again, no particular order, (and yes, I've been to Patsy's in Harlem and left them off the list)

1) Juliana's
2) Luzzo's
3) New Park
4) Best
5) Prince St.
6) Williamsburg on Union
7) John's
8] Johnny's (have not been, but if it's what I expect it to be, it likely would have been on my other list).

Is this the Johnny's Pizza you are talking about (in Brooklyn)?  If so, this would be on my list.

http://www.johnnyspizzeria.com/ 

An ex girl friend of mine's father was a NY cab driver for several years who lived in Brooklyn and he swore by this place.  I could eat here every day (although it has been 20 years).  When I think about what an old school, unchanged, NY neighborhood pizza place should look like and offer - This place fit the bill. 

The photos posted on Yelp are eye candy and the place hasn't changed a bit from what I can see (other than a flat screen TV screwed into the wall back in the little dining area).

Deninos was 5 mins from the polling site, we decided to take Harryís suggestion of half cheese and half garbage. Pizza was delicious, tf btw .06 and .07, the garbage slices were really interesting, the combination, placement and amount of toppings all worked harmoniously.

On another note, my son was a field manager for a house campaign, his candidate was an underdog but ended up winning! Now to see if he gets a job as an aide!

As I have stated more than once, I've never had a NY pizza. Until now, the pictures I've seen have not made me feel like I'm missing anything. Usually they look downright unappetising to me, particularly the crust.
But, I reckon I'd be keen to try that there garbage! That looks real good.

Edit: looking back to when I joined the forum umpteen years ago, I used to think that NY style described the sort of pizza I liked at the time.
Now, I like to call me pizzas Nearlypolitan.

Mike, all good, as I said, that's a great list. The point of my post was to prod you to post another list because I'm sure that's gonna be great too!

going off topic for a moment, is embers in bay ridge still good?

I know the Manhattan scene very well. In Brooklyn, I've only had Di Fara and Grimaldi's. Haven't tried any in the other Boros.

1) NY Pizza Suprema - regular slice, and upside down - both superb
2) Di Fara
3) Prince Street - Spicy Spring
4) John's of Bleeker
5) Sauce Pizzeria
6) Joe's
7) Grimaldi's
8) Roberta's (the Midtown east one)
