This Thursday, after 16 years behind a Hell’s Kitchen desk, Jon Stewart will cue his last Moment of Zen.

However you lean politically, there’s no denying the man is a Manhattanite through and through. So on the eve of Stewart’s final show, we went in search of the times The Daily Show was at its New York best (many of which involve epic pizza rants).

THE NYC VS. CHICAGO PIZZA RANT

If ever there were a rally cry for the City of New York, this is it.

THE DONALD TRUMP PIZZA RANT

But we can’t neglect the original pizza rant--the one that involves Donald Trump and Sarah Palin.

THE BILL DE BLASIO PIZZA RANT

We told you there were a lot of pie-related clips. And this just proves that no political party is safe.

THE ROBERT DURST REACTION

Nope, not in response to HBO's The Jinx--but to the New York newspapers’ coverage of his 2003 acquittal. 

THE MOSQUE CONTROVERSY

Then-Mayor Michael Bloomberg came on the show to air his (strangely hilarious) feelings on religious freedom. And bagel taxes.

THE 2014 U.E.S. SNOWPOCALYPSE

Remember that storm where, for once, Brooklyn was shoveled clean and the Upper East Side still had sludge?

THE FIRST SHOW BACK FROM 9/11

And on a serious note, Stewart was just two years in as host and still managed to give one of the most poignant media monologues of the time.
