I'm a Pittsburgh ex-pat living in New York and I'm amazed at how many famous Ray's Pizzas there are here. It seems like there's one on every corner around here. I seriously have no idea where the original one is. I think after I make some money here, I might open one up myself.

Don't waste your time at any of the Ray's. Go to Traviata at 68th & Columbus and bring a glass to collect the grease run-off. It makes a tasty treat.
