Lombardi's is supposed to be the original pizzeria and still have the 1st brick oven that they currently use.

Lombardi's opened in little Italy as a grocery store in 1897. It was established as the first pizzeria in America in 1905.
32 Spring Street.Corner of Spring and Mott.

Honestly, walk around and go into some nice italian pizzerias and grab a slice.
There is a place in Penn Station called Rosa's. The pizza is SSOOO good.

Lombardi's is in Little Italy. Walk around...go to the Italian shops, ask them and follow your nose. Every block has a few.

Hope this helps!

Great information!!! Thanks!

Pizza in NYC is sort of like cheesteak in Philly... it is pretty good almost everywhere (except chains and malls) You will find pizzarias all over the city and they are mostly good with great selections of slices.

Grimaldis in Brooklyn is the place to go for bragging rights and foodie cred Grimaldi's Pizzeria this is where natives will wait an hour to get Pizza.

Little Italy is largely a tourist attraction.

The Best slices IMHO will be found in the still ethnically Italian borough hoods. Belmont (Arthur Ave) in The Bronx has some amazing pizza and is in general a paradise of Italian food shopping. It is a bit of a hike for a tourist... but the Botanical Garden is right near by and so is the Zoo so it is a nice side trip although I would use caution near the Tigers if I was carrying a bag full of fresh pastry and cheese.

oddly enough if you are not looking to go off the beaten path Rosa's in the lobby of the Empire State Building is actually very good (This is a working persons luch place not a tourist joint it is tucked away on the SW corner of the lobby near the post office.)

I believe the brew pub is the Westside brewery or something like that. The Golden Tee bar ... I totally forgot what its name is.

Even I recommend 'Lombardi's Pizza center' where you can get good Italian Pizza.
'Gonzo Restaurant' on 140 W 13th St is the other place you can visit, here the pizza is divine, excellent..

Have a nice trip.

I've eaten pizza in quite a few places in NYC, but my favorite is Totonno's on Neptune in Coney Island.
