Re: Going to NYC -- Best pizza?

that's the point -- all of it. stay away from anything that looks like a chain -- only go to places that say "Pizza, Hot subs, Gyros" etc, on the awning.

there's one on every other corner...

In Manhattan...
Try John's Pizza on Bleeker btwn 6th and 7th ave. Excellent Brick oven pie, no slices.
The original Rays is on 6th ave at 11th St.
My favorite Rays is on Columbus at 81st St.

Re: Going to NYC -- Best pizza?

Good Place for Slices:

California Pizza Oven (Union Square South)

The Obvious Touristy Places:

Johns (Bleeker Street)

Arturos (Houston Street)

If you're up near Columbia:

V&T's (Amsterdam Avenue and 110th)

Places without names in Neighborhoods you'll never go to:

The place above the Seventh Avenue D-Train Stop in Park Slope

Place to check out drugged out club kids on Friday night:

Forget the name but it has decent pizza (corner of 8th and Broadway)

if you are in the mood for the best gelatto in NYC...there is this ice cream shop on Bleeker in the W Village about 2-3 blocks W of 6th Ave and right near a pizza shop. its run by an Argentinian dude, but it really is like being in Italy. Yum.

Sorry, forget the name.

V&T's is a shadow of it's former self. When I was at Columbia it was still great, but I wasn't impressed the last time I was there. Then again, I'm no longer a drunken college student either.

Still like John's on Bleecker, the other new branches just don't seem to do it quite so well and the atmosphere at the Lincoln Center location is just too antiseptic to really fit. (Still, I go to that one a lot, it's close to mom and light years ahead of California pizza...)

I like this little hole in the wall on the west side of Broadway, somewhere around 100th St. Jay and Al's? Something or other like that. Two Italian guys' names. Pretty good stuff.

Yeah, it's across from John's Pizza, a little bit east of it. Really good. I have to avoid it...

Re: Going to NYC -- Best pizza?

Yes. I know it well. It's got a few tables in the back and no bathroom.

What year did you graduate?

I don't know if you've been to Broadway between 110th and 116th lately but it's been entirely gentrified. You'd hardly recognize it.

If you're down near City Hall, go to Caruso's on Broadway. EXCELLENT.

There's a place on 23rd and Lexington too. Don't know the name but it's next to the movie theater. Horrid atmosphere but great pizza.

That's the place. Always a convenient slice for me to grab between CU and mom's place. Gets hot as hell in back unless it's really cold out. Sticking the seating area in behind the ovens was probably not a great idea.

Graduated '86. Still involved in a bunch of stuff up there so I actually visit pretty frequently.

Re: Going to NYC -- Best pizza?

I used to go to this diner on (I think) 113th and Broadway when I was high-school. It was called "Grandma's" I think. It's gone now, but I used to be able to sit there all night and read a book or write and they wouldn't kick you out. All the students gave it the right atmosphere. I think they made most of their money off of people coming in late at night to study for exams.

Re: Going to NYC -- Best pizza?

Funny thing about that place. I don't know if you noticed, but they keep one container of black pepper under the cabinet. If you ask them for it they snarl at you then slam it down on the counter. As soon as you're finished they yank it away.

Never noticed that one. I'm not a real big fan of black pepper on pizza. Sort of fits the image of the place though.

Shyt, I remember it, I think. On the west side of Broadway across from the College Inn/ Mama Joy's/ Tom's complex??? They used to sell magazines too? I vaguely remember but don't remeber the name. It closed while I was there and I could probably look it up in my Spectator records (I was an editor and have bound copies of every edition from all those years). Unfortunately they're still in a moving box somewhere.

Re: Going to NYC -- Best pizza?

It was there in 95/96.

The College Inn is gone.

They're also putting a private school on the corner of 110th and Broadway in place of that hot dog place (i.e. strategic crackhead removal).

Yeah, I knew College Inn was history. Maybe I'm thinking of someplace else, or maybe I'm just plain confused. I remember a place on that side of the street but somehow thought it closed sooner.

That whole block south of 110th is going to be knocked down and rebuilt. Primarily faculty housing. The school will be part of it. The new bank on the corner of 109th was designed so that a larger building could be constructed right around it without disturbing anything. Since it's south of 110th, it's a different community board and different zoning rules, so Columbia can do a lot more down there than they can do above 110th.

The last name I remember it having was "Mills Diner" but I'm pretty sure the people who ran or owned it at that time were not named Mills.

And it's been gone a long time.
