NYC pizza experience

Kathy P. | Nov 26, 2001 10:14 AM

I went to NYC in mid November for the weekend. It was my first trip back to the city in quite a few years. I now live in southwest Ohio.

Some good food specialties here, but alas, pizza is not one of them. I ate pizza 3 times that weekend: at Patsy Grimaldi's under the Brooklyn Bridge, at the food court in Grand Central and at a little lunch counter place off Rector Street near Ground Zero. Grimaldi's was very good, but we had to wait outside for almost a half hour (good thing it wasn't cold). Grand Central was passable. But, the slice I had at the place near Ground Zero was just as I remembered NY pizza! It was great. And only $1.75 a slice. I wish I could remember the name of the place, but they do have a vinyl Corona Light sign banner hanging out front. Plain place. You order, get your food, pay and then you can either sit at one of the tables or walk out the back and enter a bar and get a beer. I look forward to going back again on my next trip.
