A map of all the pizza.

My mother complained to me yesterday that since she doesn't have a twitter or a facebook, she never sees any of the newspaper articles about me or the things that aren't pizza reviews, because I don't put that stuff on the blog anymore. So here you go, ma.

Jeff Manheimer made this map for me. We are still working out some small details, but I was never one to keep things secret until they're finished, so here it is now. I'm almost finished with eating all the pizza in Manhattan; by the time I'm done I'll have been at it for two years. The truth is, lately I've been feeling a little sour about the whole thing, like it's not that important or not that meaningful.

And it's neither of those things, but looking at all the information on this blog aggregated into points on a map makes me realize how monolithic it is. Whether or not it matters, I set out to do something HUGE and in a few weeks I'll have done it. And here is the proof. Thanks, Jeff.

This map is easily accessible at any time of day via the "The Map!" button up there at the top of the page. At Slice Harvester we are working day and night to keep you knowledgeable about local pizza parlors. Don't forget that. I'm not doing this for me, I'm doing this for YOU.


  1. Success is a journey, not a destination. The doing is often more important than the outcome.

    ~The journey is the reward

    The only journey is the one within.

    Nothing is so awesomely unfamiliar as the familiar that discloses itself at the end of a journey

    When you have completed 95 percent of your journey, you are only halfway there

    Experience is the best teacher of all. And for that, there are no guarantees that one will become an artist. Only the journey matters.

    Focus on the journey, not the destination. Joy is found not in finishing an activity but in doing it

  2. whether or not it's monumental, important or anyone cares, one thing is for certain: You Did It.
    that's cool.

  3. Dunno if you plan to double back and capture any places that have opened in the past two years...

    In any event, looking forward to the "playoffs" that you said were going to happen at the end of all this.

  4. One more vote for this being a great project.
