Preserving the Cultural Importance of NYC Pizza Joints Through "The NY Pizza Project"

Pizza joints are part of the fabric of our City, not just because of their delicious slices or quick service, but because of their history and character. This is exactly what five 30-year-old NYC natives have set out to capture in The NY Pizza Project.

Split into four areas of focus–the makers, the eaters, the shop, and the block–the project documents the life of hundreds of pizzerias through photos and interviews. To witness how pizza shops are “keeping it real” during a time of mass gentrification, pick up a copy of The NY Pizza Project coffee table book. and watch the video above.
