You don't want someone going to a shitty spot and thinking that all NYC pizza is like that, and then, say going to another state and having a better slice than here.
    Iím not saying every pizza spot in nyc is amazing and maybe Iíve just been lucky but Iíve never had anything close to what youíve experienced happen to me.

    You can always ask at your hotel what the best pizza shop in the area is. Google searching will give you plenty of results as well and they will all be good.

    Yea dude... that entire area is slowly changing. Itís still not what I would call a ďgreat areaĒ but tons of bars, restaurants, bike shops and white people from Iowa who canít afford to move to Williamsburg.

    Very few areas in Brooklyn you wouldnít wanna live in these days.

    and once the hipsters cant afford Bushwick which will be pretty soon, they're going to venture to Ridgewood.

    Already there. We've had numerous friends move there. Considered it ourselves.
