While working, I was on a budget and did not know where to go to get a good, inexpensive, delicious meal. Until one day when a co-worker came with a slice of pizza. The delicious aroma of the pizza immediately hit my senses. The smell was mouth watering. The co-worker was nice enough to give me the location of the pizza shop.
The pizza shop is located in the corner of 41st Street and 9th Avenue of Manhattan. The shop is named "99 Cents Fresh Pizza". The A, C and E local train runs the closest. The transit stop would be 42nd Street- Port Authority Bus Terminal. People can also take the 1, 2, 3, S, 7, N, Q, R, and W train. The shop is open up till very late at night. The location is nearby Port Authority and Time Square's attractions.
Do not let the outdoor looks deceive you; the shop has no indoor dining area. The outdoor counter space would fit about two to three people. Everyone orders from this outdoor counter space. Behind the counter would be about three servers to attend a customer. There's a large pizza oven that is used to make fresh food for customers. This scenery does not stop regular customers from ordering their fresh, inexpensive, delicious pizza.
The fresh pizza cost 99 cents. With toppings, an additional 50 cents is added. One of their specials is two pizzas and a beverage for $2.75. An 18 inch pie will cost $8.00, $2.00 extra for additional toppings. Donuts and coffee is also served for 50 cents each. They only accept cash. Many cannot expect much convenience with payment options for a small place. These prices may doubt ones opinion before trying the pizza. However, the quality of the pizza is stated to be better than most pizzas that may cost $2.75 per slice. The service is fast and pleasant.
The size and texture of the pizza is most commonly compared to other pizzeria shop's original pizza slices. For any who is on a budget and does not mind buying pizza as a meal should stop by and try the shops food. Since Time Square is a huge attraction, visiting the area can be a good excuse.
As soon as I saw the photograph, I recognized it! While I live in Australia, I've been to New York every year for the last three years. I stay at 420, west 42nd street between 9th and 10th ave. And I have enjoyed pizza from that very shop! New York pizza is the best.
