Again, notice how you've got a couple of New Haven pizzerias near the top. Connecticut has a large Italian population so yeah, they've got some killer pizza too!
Great list and photos, about a third of them look completely unappealing while a third or so look really good.

From the pictures anyway Di Fara seems somewhere in the middle. #6, 25, 38, 3 are more to my liking, some like 70, 56, 49, 48, 42 look pretty scary, 31 looks like a dog's breakfast, 27, 26, 9, 4 just awful. IMNSHO.

#77 and #66 (particularly 66) are considered the gold standard on LI.

Thanks for that list and I would like to try all the pizzas, please. I feel like New Haven would be my favorite.

Also I forgot there's a little documentary about Dom DeMarco that's quite good:

Quote:
Hailed as the “godfather of Brooklyn pizza,” for forty five years Domenico DeMarco, Italian émigré and father of seven, has been slinging pizzas in his legendary corner shop, Di Fara. Employing five of his children, Dom works tirelessly from morning until night hand crafting each and every pizza himself while his kids take orders and manage the mob of devoted pizza aficionados. The Best Thing I Ever Done is a portrait of DeMarco and his beloved pizzeria, an exploration of his rise to fame and an ode to pizzaioli who take their time to 'make it right.'
