Today, many celebrities reside in the village, so be sure to keep a look-out during your tour. Enjoy sampling three different interpretations of NY’s classic comfort food… Neapolitan, Sicilian and New York pizza. Then, visit nearby SoHo, Manhattan’s most famous art district.

Manhattan’s Lower East side is packed with dozens of pizzerias – it truly is a pizza-lover’s paradise.
