I'm from the South where pie shops are very common. But I find this is hard to come by in NYC. Sure, there are diners that serve average cakes and we're spoiled for choice when it comes to bakeries specializing in gourmet cupcakes, scones, cream puffs and other specialty pastry items.
But is there some place in the city that offers homemade, delicious, old-fashioned pies like banana cream, boston cream, chocolate cream, coconut, etc...by the slice !?
