And that's a excellent nightshot
Very colorful night portrait. I like it!
Thanks for looking Daniel. I haven't said this to you already, but good luck with the new one. Glad you got in your enjoyment of getting together with friends for a beer at a local bar, and your now excited to be at home with your the little one. I can only imagine that it's will be hard work. A friend has two: 5 and 6, going on 7 this Sunday, (I get to see her--she's great--she now says "Whacha doin', yo?" but doesn't say it seriously, only as a joke, she had to make sure I understood. You're definitely going to have fun and hard work at the same exact time. I wish the two of you luck. As you may notice, I'm not short in my replies. Just me. Really enjoy NY. :) There are many free concerts along the water fronts and parks of Manhattan and Brooklyn currently...you might want to check them out.
My writing was terrible in that last comment. Geez, gotta reread before I post.
Thanks Chris. I am usually short in my replies and comments too. I think my wife has a whole shlew (if shlew isn't a word it should be damn it!) of things to do over the next 6 days. We are staying in Greenwich Village so I would assume we are staying close by that area. I have never been to NYC so it will be a treat no matter what we do. This will be her 5th trip so I left her in charge. :|
Fantastic. The Village is great. My first experiences, in high school, or cutting out of school, taking the ferry from Staten Island, and going to the Village to just walk around. It's the only neighborhood that goes off the grid, so to speak. It actually has its own grid the tilts to the west, but 6th and 7th Avenues break up that grid. Be sure to stand at the intersection of West 10th St. and West 4th St. Restaurants: Tartine is really good. I'm forgetting the cross streets, but you can look it up. For fun go to the Cowgirl Hall of Fame. Good for lunch or lite snack. For a NY diner experience, in the Village, Manatus is good...breakfast food whatever time of day, Bleecker and Christopher Streets. Stick to breakfast and sandwiches. Entrees, eh. If you want to go to the best restaurant in, I think in NYC, it is Brooklyn. Al di Lá. Northern Italian and a great dinner. A bit pricey but not bad. Have the Malfatti as a starter, swiss chard stuffed with cheese and a sage/butter sauce. It is in Park Slope, Brooklyn on 5th Ave. and Carroll St. Take the B, Q, N, or R trains. You won't regret it.
Excellent! Thanks for the tips. I hate going to a new city and just being another tourist. I'd rather get off the beaten path.
Here's another place, and since you'll be in the West Village you should walk over to the East Village to Veselka, a Ukrainian diner at at E 9th St and 2nd Ave. Really good peirogies and I love their Ukrainian meatballs with mushroom sauce. It's a neighborhood staple and a true NY experience. Don't forget to have the potato pancake with apple sauce. Across the street from it is St. Mark's Church where our first port manager, Pietre Stuyvesant is buried. He lost his leg against the Spanish in St. Maarten in the Carribean--ended up with a peg leg. If you want Indian for cheap E. 6th St between 1st and 2nd Aves is the block to go. Tabla is the high end Indian on the East side of Madison Park, but well worth the price.
If I think of anything else, you know that I'll let you know.
If you've never had Portuguese. It's in the West Village. Really good restaurant. Cale soup is a must.
Hope I'm slightly helpful. These are only suggestions and not taken personally if they don't work for you. :)
Thank you for the suggestions. No worries, I appreciate all the tips. I am sure we will try some of them. I'm pretty open to any food types, besides, nothing can be as bad as the raw eel eggs I had on San Francisco!
RAW EEl EGGS!!! Now I am totally throwing up. ;) Enjoy yourself. Walk down Gay St. because it is where both Al Lewis (Granpa Munster from the Munsters) and Walt Whitman lived. Off of Christopher Street. I once worked around the corner on Greenwich Ave and Christopher, and went to this street to have cigarettes. I sat on a stoop and two young men came out of a townhouse across the street, I sat on the north sideish, they were packing an SUV, one of them apparently forgot to pack other items and Al Lewis yelled at him, noticing me sitting there smoking, he rolled his eyes at the forgetfulness of his assistants. It's a really gorgeous tiny block. OO...you must watch this and see if he is playing in a comedy club near by. John Roberts is the name. Wants to be the Carol Burnette of the Internet.
