Slice: New York Niki Achitoff-Gray 2 comments

I'm sure most of us would agree that pizza-making is an art, but how about pizza as art?

Ray's Pizza on Prince Street: The End of an (ahem) Original ... Maybe

Adam Kuban Post a comment

We've mentioned what I like to call "The Various Rays" a lot on Slice. And to anyone outside NYC, the saga can be confusing to say the least. Heck, even for people who live here, there's often disagreement about which of the "World Famous Original Ray's Famous Pizza" joints is the original. More

'Iron Man' Tony Stark Digs Ray's Famous Pizza

Adam Kuban 6 comments

As you may have guessed from my previous post, I went to the movies this weekend. Not for Indy but to finally see Iron Man. I'd heard some nasty pizza-related rumors about Tony Stark from some of you out there. Turns out, they were true. After escaping from three months in an Afghanistan cave, Stark gets home to Malibu, California, and meets with his business partner and soon-to-be nemesis Obadiah Stane. Stane has just flown in from a Stark Industries board meeting in New York City. And he has pizza that he's schlepped back with him. And where does... More

The Pizza Express

Adam Kuban 8 comments

After starting a six-pizzeria pizza crawl at Franny's, travelers board the" Pizza Express." This afternoon I had the pleasure of riding aboard what I'll call the Scott Wiener Pizza Express. Scott Wiener is a true pizza lover, one who keeps a pizza journal that's legendary among those who know him, and his love and enthusiasm for the pie is truly infectious. So much so that a little more than 20 people showed up for a tour that would take us from Prospect Heights to deep Brooklyn, up to East Harlem, and back again to Brooklyn (see map, after the... More

Our man Richard Blakeley has taken this idea and run with it to new extremes of incrementally disgusting thrills, imprisoning a cheese slice from New York's finest Ray's Pizza in a cardboard box back in the nether regions of the Gawker Media offices. The Ray's Pizza Putrescence Cam [Gridskipper]... More

Elfin Goodness

Adam Kuban 2 comments

Will Ferrell makes me cry. I just saw Elf last night, and the guy's antics had me laughing to the point of tears. Ferrell plays Buddy, a human raised by elves. When Buddy is confronted with his true identity, he's off to New York City, where his father lives. Before leaving the North Pole, he asks Santa (Ed Asner), "What's New York like?" Santa replies, "There are a few things you should know. If you see gum on the sidewalk, leave it. It's not free candy. There are thirty-five Ray's Pizza. They all claim to be the original, but...
