Pizza of course, but also cheesecakes and pies (oh my!). Make the most of the city with the Chevy Trax rearview camera. It makes parallel parking at your favorite hidden gem easy as pie.

Eileen's gives you a warm, homey feeling the second you walk into it's downtown shop. The cheesecake is similarly comforting, topped with juicy strawberries. It'll make you feel perfectly at home in the big city.

These bake shops in Queens have great ambience and a very wide variety of cakes. Make sure you have the New York-style cheesecake along with what ever other tasty treat you find.

4. Margherita – Roberta's Pizza

Roberta's is fresh to death. The store front has a cool open-roof, industrial feel that gives real Brooklyn vibes. The Margherita pizza serves one to three (if your friends want something light), and every slice will have you looking for the next one.

5. Fresh Mozzarella Pizza – Joe's Pizza

Joe's is a staple in the Village. They know their way around a slice. We suggest splurging on some fresh mozzarella to fully experience the authentic flavors that this place is known for.

6. Artichoke Pizza – Artichoke Basille's Pizza

The artichoke pizza is a must for anyone looking to enjoy all that New York City pizza has to offer. It's a savory white pizza with a delicious artichoke zing that will have you coming back for more time and time again.

7. Xtra Cheese Pizza – Best Pizza

Williamsburg's Best Pizza lets you choose from a menu full of toppings ranging from bacon to caramelized onions. What ever you choose, however, remember not to skimp on the cheese.

8. Rhubarb Almond Pie – Pie Corps

Pie Corps has both savory and sweet pies that play off seasonal ingredients to create a rotating menu of interesting treats to try. The rhubarb almond pie may only have its fresh rhubarb in the early summer, so go grab a slice quick.

9. Crack Pie® – Milk Bar

Milk Bar is one stop you wont want to miss. The Crack Pie® has a crunchy crust with an addictive butter filling. Just don't forget to grab yourself some Cereal Milk™ to wash it down.

10. Bourbon Pecan Pie – Pies 'n' Thighs

There's a restaurant in both Williamsburg and the Lower East Side, so it's no wonder this place feels hip when you sit down for dinner. The Pecan Pie is a fan favorite and delivers all the Southern comfort you could ask for all the way up here in the North.
