I will be in New York in a couple of weeks and I'm really wanting pierogi. I've done some searches through the Chowhound boards, but haven't come across any specific recommendations. Neighborhood doesn't matter -- what are the places you like?
I've been looking into the same thing, ragna, and so far came up with two: Karczma in Greenpoint, Brooklyn and Veselka in the East Village in Manhattan. Both come highly recommended but I've tried neither yet.
Let me know if you find a place.

The best pierogi in Greenpoint is at Relax, a tiny hole in the wall on Newell Street in Greenpoint.

Hello All -- Thank you for the recommendations! Due to our schedule we were not able to get out of Manhattan so we went to Veselka. To correct foodperestroika, Veselka does serve alcohol -- beer and wine. The pierogi were satisfying & our entire dinner was cheap. It was crazy busy, of course.
Hopefully, my schedule for future trips will allow me to explore Greenpoint pierogi. Thanks for the recommendations!
