Spotted: Patsy's in NYC

On my walk back to my hotel yesterday, I spotted this Patsy's location on 23rd Street.  Knowing it is on the list of must-eat pizza places, I had to at least stop for a photo.  I had other plans for dinner (or so I thought), so I couldn't stop in and eat.  Besides, they don't sell slices, so it isn't portable. 

I believe the East Harlem location is the original/best but as far as walk-bys, this one will do just fine for me.  They operate a coal-fired oven and from the sounds of it, turn out some incredible pies. 

There's some dispute (I think) over who had the first pizza joint in New York - both Patsy's and Lombardi's claim to be the first.
