ANN ARBOR – Whether you’ve grabbed a slice midday or at midnight, it’s likely you’ve paid a visit to New York Pizza Depot over the years. And if you haven’t -- do it.

In honor of its 25-year anniversary serving up New York Style Pizza and Italian cuisine steps away from University of Michigan’s campus, NYPD is throwing a block party on Maynard on Aug. 12.

From 4-11 p.m., community members are invited to enjoy live music and performers, all-you-can-eat food and drink and giveaways.

“We have been here for the past 25 years and continue to relish in the true connection to the community that we have built over the years,” owner Domenico Telemaco said in a release. “We felt that this Block Party would be the best way to celebrate this wonderful achievement for a small family-owned restaurant here in Ann Arbor.”

Telemaco opened the downtown eatery with his brothers Mauro and John.
