There's been a never ending list of New York must do's fired at us by friends, guide books, family, blogs, and hearsay. We're doing our best to work our way through them all (I am becoming more and more concerned that the 5 years we have here may not give us enough time to do and see everything New York has to offer). Sifting through our never-ending list, lunching on pizza by the slice seemed to be one edible New York essential that recurred time and time again.
Joe's Pizza in Greenwich Village is (at least, so I'm told), a quintessential New York pizza joint, which serves up a small, select range of pizzas with the simplest of toppings until 4am, seven days a week.
Standing at the counter outside with our $3 slices (we went for some of the fancier options), we were surrounded by the most eclectic mix of New Yorkers and did our best to pretend to be one of the locals as we devoured the crunchy base and perfectly minimal topping in a couple of minutes. And then B went back for more.
