New Yorkers are very particular about their pizza, bagels, and black and white cookies. When it comes to pizza in NYC we’ve seen everything from people carrying home giant pizza boxes from their neighborhood pizza shop, eating pizza that rivals the best in Naples in high-end restaurants, and snacking on the ninety-nine cent slices right outside of Grand Central Station.
Who do you think makes the best New York City style pizza? What’s your go-to? We enlisted some experts for their advice and found what we think is the best pizza in Manhattan.
Now when we visit New York City, we always stop for a few slices from Joe’s Pizza on Carmine and Bleecker St in Greenwich Village. It’s a simple storefront that is pretty consistently crowded but the line moves quickly as the team at Carmine’s tosses new pies and warms the giant slices in the oven if needed.
This Greenwich Village pizza shop is the original location, which opened in 1975. There are several other locations around the city, but our favorite is still the one on Carmine. The walls are papered with photos of celebrities stopping by for a slice of pizza at Joe’s. Make sure you stop in to get a slice or two on your next trip to NYC!
