Anonymous asked: Hi Adam, I have a question for you. What is the best place to get a pizza slice in New York. I'm going for my first time in March :) Also, if you wouldn't mind recommending a few things you think I should check out to really captivate the New York experience. I would really appreciate it! If you're too busy, that's fine too. I understand. Have a lovely day. X
Nobody ever asks me questions about life in New York, which I am usually pretty grateful for because I don’t really know how to answer them. I’ve been here for 8 months and it feels like 1, somehow. In New York years I was born tomorrow or next week, basically. The best place to get a pizza slice is probably anywhere.
I like Vinnie’s because there are a lot of vegan options so anybody can eat it and it’s like a fifteen minute walk from my apartment. But there’s dollar pizza everywhere and it’s pretty good for a dollar. There’s free pizza with drink purchase at a lot of bars. FREE! Some people swear by Artichoke but the other day I was right near there and there was an entire slice facedown on the sidewalk and I prefer to internalize that as “someone hated their pizza so much that they threw it on the floor.” Pizza in New York is like pizza in any other city. When it’s awesome, it’s awesome. When it’s shitty, it’s still kind of awesome. People will tell you that the pizza here is just better. I am not that guy. I don’t know the fucking difference. The best pizza is wherever you stop at your hungriest, when you only have 3 dollars in your pocket, and you’re with a friend.
Same goes for basically everything in this city. I don’t know how to help you captivate the New York experience because I can’t curate your experience I can only speak to my own. Life doesn’t happen in a plan or on a schedule. A good way to do it might be to plan 1 big thing that matters to you (shopping, a museum, a landmark, etc) in the morning and evening and let your food choices happen by accident. Have a random cup of coffee wherever you are at. It will probably be good enough. Have lunch from a cart or just eat a pretzel for lunch. It’s not going to be the best pretzel in the world but you will be in New York City eating a soft pretzel, that is your postcard moment.
All that being said, my favorite donut in New York is Peter Pan in Greenpoint. I love Prosperity Dumpling in Chinatown because it is dirt cheap and so good. I like brunch at Saxon + Parole or Habitat (both have bloody mary bars), and I really, really like The Bagel Store. Oh, and back to pizza, Slice Harvester might have your back.
i would rather pick a half sandwich and soup if U catch my drift
this is seriously so cute. i miss you, baltimore, see you next month :)
