The pizzeria is in a bizarre location considering that it’s located is a predominately Jewish area with just about all kosher shops. Regardless, people frequently make the trek to Avenue J to try a slice.

Paulie Gee’s opened in Greenpoint, Brooklyn back in 2010. Long lines soon followed, with many wanting to try some of his great Brooklyn pizza.
Kim and I visited soon after Paulie Gee’s opened. We really enjoyed the pizza, only available by the pie. Since then, we’ve visited quite a few times, although we haven’t been there in around two years. (If you don’t arrive on weekends before opening, you’re bound to get stuck waiting to get inside.)
