What is meant by New York pizza....and does it exist in Chicago as I recall it?

Try out Jimmy's Pizza Cafe, newly opened , located 5159 N. Lincoln Ave., Chicago. Jimmy's will satisfy homesick New Yorkers living in Chicago. Thin folderble slice is a typical New York Pizza. crispy and chewy crust is fantastic!! Instead zeppoles, Jimmy's serves beignets that is better than Cafe Du monde's in New Orleans. Garlic Knots and White pizza too!!

I feel like it's only a matter of time before they're recognized as the best Ny style slice in Chicago.
I've tried nearly every NY style pizza on the other Ny style pizza thread and none of them can match Jimmy's. Finally we have a fine example of how NY style pizza should be executed.
