The best pizza in Manhattan?

55

I love New York style pizza.  To me, the best pizza is a plain cheese slice with plenty of sauce, and dripping with grease.  The perfect slice will flop over when picked up unless you fold it in half first.  Yummmmm.

I wrote this post last week, but by the time you read this, I’ll be in Manhattan with my extended family.  I want to make sure that we try some of the best pizza around while we’re here. 

Do you have a favorite pizza place in Manhattan?  Below are Yelp’s top 10 in Manhattan (at the time I wrote this), followed by the top 6 near Midtown East (where we’ll be staying).
