Cityscape: Digging into Pizza
New York-style pizza tops “best of” lists across the web. A google search turns up images of mostly big, hearty cheese slices. The kind of photos that make your mouth water. Pizza has a long history in the Big Apple. In fact, Lombardi's in Manhattan is said to be the first pizzeria in America.
Brooklyn resident Scott Weiner is an expert on all things pizza. He turned his love for the food into a career. Scott runs tours of significant pizzerias in New York City. We recently visited with him at his apartment in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn, where he keeps a super large collection of pizza boxes. You'll hear that interview on this week's Cityscape. Also on this week's show, we'll visit a pizza school on Manhattan's Lower East Side, and talk with a co-owner of a Staten Island pizza joint that's been around since 1937.
