People love lists - top 10, top 100, 1001 things one must do, best this, best that, etc. - it's a staple of life, even a bit formulaic, but, like David Letterman's nightly Top Ten List, it's entertaining and fun. And in a complex world with so many choices, what better way to help make decisions than to quantify, rate or make lists?
Of course, many bristle against the idea of reducing subjective things to some objective standard, but lists are useful if for no other reason than to spark conversation and lively debate and to add fun to life's decision making.
Pizza is one of the country's - and likewise, one of New York City's - most enduring and popular food items. It's a rare individual who does not like pizza, the ultimate snack or meal on the go. It's found everywhere, so the question becomes, where do I go? I have assembled a collage of six of New York City's top pizza parlors, along with two stories involving pizza which I have previously written about. Each photo links to the story and photos of that place. There are a number of highly acclaimed places in the city which I have yet to visit and write about. I will get there. In the interim, explore places you may not have yet visited and try some of NewYork City's top pizzas. Enjoy :)
