I think we can all agree that NY pizza is better than every other pizza in the US (go home Chicago), but what we can't all seem to agree on is the best pizza spot in our own city -- for some it's all about the neighborhood spot, for others it's about how "New York-y" it is, for others it's authenticity and faithfulness to traditions, and, for a whole other group it's whether or not you can shove it in your face at 4am.
