Ratings (1=terrible, 5=mind-blowingly great)
- This is classic “Hey youse guys, how bouta slice?” kind of “New York Style” pizza. I suppose there are some New Yorkers out there who stick their noses up at this, but I think it’s pretty darn good. In my mind, it’s the best pizza in the area.
- NYPD also serves deep dish style pizza, salads, pasta, a bunch of different kinds of sandwiches, etc. I have no idea why you would get any of these things. The reason why one goes to NYPD is to eat a slice of New York style pizza. Simple as that.
- They do have some more “modern” flavors here (for example, they frequently have some kind of chicken pizza available), but Will and I tend to favor the classics. Will likes pepperoni, and I like the “white” pizza, which is mozzarella, ricotta, parmesan, and seasonings– no red sauce.
- They’ve recently (like in the last year or so) remodeled the inside of this place and made it a lot bigger, though it is still not exactly what you call elegant dinning. There is also a branch/franchise on University Ave., but I’ve never been to that one.
