    I only count 20.  Take out NYC (New Haven, DC, and Boston are suburbs of NYC), Chicago, chain pizzerias & Texas (WTF?), and there are only 5.

        The pizza from Co. will not win a pretty pizza contest.

              It doesn't have to be pretty, just good tasting!!!

                It's like going to a museum and looking at ugly art. Then all the art lovers who want to "get it" say "noooo the char is a symbol of the struggle of life" Then everyone says "oooooh I see it now" But if you saw it anywhere else...it would just be an ugly pizza....that might be sent back most of the time.

                I like my pizza...attractive & tasty.

                  LOL..point taken......but if you EVER suggest to someone from Boston, DC, or New Haven that they are a suburb of NYC, you will be singing soprano in your suburb of Chicago or Vegas

                    FriedClamFanatic - What do you mean? Both locations are in Flyover, USA.
                     
                    I actually had to tell Europeans that I lived near Chicago.  They had no idea where Milwaukee is.

                      Why would Europeans know where Milwaukee is, unless they had relations there? Is Milwaukee one of the 20 largest cities in America? In how many European countries can you name the 20 largest cities - let alone be able to identify where each is on a map?
                       
                      People know where New York, Chicago and Los Angeles are on a map. Anything else is catch as catch can.
                       
                      As for where the greatest pizzerias are in the country, it should surprise no one that the bulk of them are in Chicago, New York and New Haven. You could make a Top 30 list just from those cities alone. Are there other good pizza joints? Sure. But, the 75th best pizza place in NYC is likely to be better than what most other places have to offer. Should they make a list to include other places just for the sake of geographic diversity, or should it actually be the Top 35 pizzerias (or, at least one man's vision of the Top 35)?
                       
                      And, while you may get away with calling New Haven a "suburb" of NYC, your suggestion - even in jest - that Boston and DC are suburbs of New York is just as ludicrous as anyone discounting the entire midwest as being the same place....even though sometimes it seems like it is.

                          TTM - In case you haven't figured it out, I was just messing with you bushers on the East Coast.

                            Sorry. I usually expect humor to be funny.
                             
                            It's a bad list. Rip it all you want, but rip it for the right reasons.

                              Just to remain on topic, my first issue is that DiFara's isn't the best pizza in Brooklyn, let alone the United States.

                                      Up until the mid-1960s Milwaukee was one of the most ethnically diverse cities in the country; I wouldn't be surprised if some older Europeans are aware of it even though subsequent generations might not be.

                                        I've only had pizza in Dallas once and it was at Campania.  My wife and I thought it was very good and it turned out to be our favorite meal in Dallas.  How does it compare to iL Cane Rosso?

                                            There are no rural spots  or 65mph speed limits between NYC and New Haven so yes it's a suburb (it may not have been 40 or 50 years ago but it it is now)
                                            I'm still laughing at the person  on the forum (I don't remember who it was) that said that Charlottesville VA is a suburb of Washington DC

                                              I only count 20.  Take out NYC (New Haven, DC, and Boston are suburbs of NYC), Chicago, chain pizzerias & Texas (WTF?), and there are only 5.

                                              I'm from New Haven and it is not a suburb of New York City. I suppose you consider Milwaukee to be a suburb of Seattle.


                                              There are no rural spots  or 65mph speed limits between NYC and New Haven so yes it's a suburb (it may not have been 40 or 50 years ago but it it is now)

                                              There are no rural spots or (under) 65 mph speed limits between New Haven and New York City? You might want to run that by the folks with crop farms, livestock farms, woodlots and hunting lands along the way. Maybe chat with those who are always stuck in traffic along the Post Road between New Haven and NYC.
                                               
                                              That aside, in order for a place to be a suburb of a city you first have to make sure the residents of that place identify with that city. In the case of New Haven, it's not even an exurb -- today or 40 or 50 years ago.

                                                    New Haven a suburb of NYC?   That's news to me.   According to mapquest, from center to center, they are 82.38 miles apart and it's a 1 hour and 50 minute drive (110 minutes).   Also, according to the U.S. Census, they are in separate Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSAs).  
                                                    I don't think think havng a commuter train qualifies a place as a suburb, either.   If it did, then the Accela express commuter train would make Washignton, DC another suburb of NYC.     Not buying it 
                                                     
                                                    For the stats afficianados out there, here's a list of the nations Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSAs) in rank order.  No surprise that the New York-Northern NJ-Long Island MSA is 1st on the list.  The New Haven-Milford, CT  MSA is 60th.

                                                        Wow. I guess that would make Milwaukee a suburb of Chicago.

                                                            New Haven a suburb of NYC?   That's news to me.   According to mapquest, from center to center, they are 82.38 miles apart and it's a 1 hour and 50 minute drive (110 minutes).   Also, according to the U.S. Census, they are in separate Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSAs).  
                                                            I don't think think havng a commuter train qualifies a place as a suburb, either.   If it did, then the Accela express commuter train would make Washignton, DC another suburb of NYC.     Not buying it 

                                                            For the stats afficianados out there, here's a list of the nations Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSAs) in rank order.  No surprise that the New York-Northern NJ-Long Island MSA is 1st on the list.  The New Haven-Milford, CT  MSA is 60th.

                                                            With a metro popluation of 20 million  its logical that the larger the population the further the suburbs would extend. Interestingly enough the MSA of Providence (which is tiny) includes both Fall River and New Bedford (which is 30 miles away) even to someone with the most wildest imagination, neither are suburbs of Providence-the suburbs only extend east into Seekonk and myself, living in Providence, I don't know of anyone who considers Fall River or New Bedford part of the metropolitan area.. There are actually turkey farms and barn silos in between Seekonk and Fall River.
                                                             
                                                            Comparing Amtrak, a national train system with regional transit is like comparing apples and oranges, although if you look at most current maps, everything from Fredericksburg VA to Concord NH is just one contiguous megopolis
