Authentic NYC Pizza

Hello Chowhounds! My wife, daughter & I will be visiting NYC this week, and I want to get a slice (or whole) of truly authentic NYC pizza (preferrably cheese and/or sausage & mushroom, but I'll take other suggestions as well. We were there last year and I asked the concierge, and he recommended a place that had a wonderful gourmet artisan pizza, but I'm more looking for the kind that folds in half and half the cheese comes off when you pick it up. I worked in a place in Virginia in grad school that had great NY style pizza, so now I'm longing for the real thing. We live in the SF Bay area, so we can get great pizza, and we always see NY style pizza, but the crust never seems to be the same, too dooughy.

We're staying in Midtown near Rockerfeller center, so anywhere within walking distance from there would be great. Please nothing near times square, great place, but been there, done that, got the M&Ms...but way too crowded this time of year. Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
