All the Pizza Places in the East Village

How many pizzerias are there in the East Village? If you Google “East Village Pizza” the results are fragmented into the several pages we’ve all become familiar with and not quite been satisfied by (Google, why do some places always seem to be missing?). Then you have Yelp, whose results are paid for, er… just patently absurd (Lombardi’s and Prince Street Pizza are both in Nolita, and not so fast, &pizza). Using Houston to 14th Streets as the south-north boundaries and the East River to the Bowery as the east-west limits, doing a block by block survey on Google images and street maps, the answer seems to be 37.

That number is a little fuzzy. A few places (Emily and Joe & Pat’s) haven’t opened yet and a few places aren’t technically pizzerias but do serve pizza. That 37 also doesn’t include Domino’s, which is its own animal. Pie by the Pound and Artichoke technically aren’t in the East Village. The former is on the other side of the hood’s western boundary (4th Avenue). And since Artichoke moved to its new location across 14th Street, it joins the jumble of neighborhoods (Gramercy Park, Stuyvesant Square, and Stuyvesant Town) north of the East Village and Alphabet City.

2010 New York City Pizza Run

Ready, set, go! Er, no, wait, eat! No! Run!

There may have been some confused passers-by and homeless people at Tompkins Square Park on Sunday, but the 65 people who gathered there at 11 o’clock in the morning knew the score. Four laps around the park (2.25 miles), with stops after three for a slice of pizza. It was the first annual New York City Pizza Run, an event conceived by pizza blogger, Jason Feirman (I Dream of Pizza).
