In New York, a very popular way of eating pizza is on the go. Which is the concept of Joe’s Pizza: customers mostly come for a quick meal, with the pizzas sold in slices.
Joe’s Pizza was founded in 1975 by Neapolitan Joe Pozzuoli, who wanted to share the art of pizza with new yorkers: it now has 5 addresses in the city! But the first address next to Washington Square Park remains the most popular.
The customers, mainly businessmen and working people, come eat their pizza slices on the go for a few dollars. Even if you order a slice, it is still very filling. You can also get a full pizza!

Di Fara Pizza
At Di Fara Pizza, the Italian original founder Domenico is still the one cooking your pizza, since 1965! With the help of his children, he makes the most delicious pizza, now very famous in New York City.
