Little Italy on 33rd–Great Midtown Manhattan Pizza for Tourists

Finishing up some serious stuff in my favorite city of New York, I took a lunch time stroll from Times Square south to catch a train back to Jersey.

In fact, after “slicing” for lunch downtown at Roddy’s, my thoughts had turned to coffee, and I was on my way to a Starbucks for my usual post-lunch cold-brew.
