We grew up in a New York City that was always moving, always changing. Yet today, the change feels different. As the rise of chain stores, condos, and banks threaten to dominate the urban landscape of New York City, pizza shops serve as guardians of authenticity in the face of homogenization. This project is an homage to them and to the other small businesses that keep New York real.

Now Available: A beautifully printed 192-page hardcover coffee table book documenting New York City's last authentic pizzerias through photography and interviews. Foreword written by New York Times bestselling author and native Brooklynite, Jonathan Lethem.
