This week I took a bike ride around Manhattan for the first time since March to see the effects of the pandemic on independent pizzerias. It was pretty brutal. Dine-in businesses were virtually paused while local favorite slice shops were mostly operating like normal. That being said, slice shops more popular with tourists were frighteningly still. This is a tough time for small businesses in cities like NYC so support them when you can by ordering takeout and purchasing gift certificates. Here are the places I checked out. More to come in the next few weeks.
