I am so glad I escaped New York.
Please prepare for my 2010 move to NY by telling me your favorite:
- Clubs with great music and that you can dance at without constantly being sexually harassed but still have an attractive clientèle in case you misplace your moral compass that night.
Quite happy to see this thread!
http://jacksondiner.com/) is my favorite spot, and it offers both buffet and menu options. Sashay down the street a bit and hit up the large Indian grocery for some amazing products with fantastic packaging.
Will get back to the others in a bit.
It's very likely I'll be in New York from the 25th of November to the 29th. Does anyone know of any good concerts or other eventsthat might be going on in that time span?
My god, I bet that got unbearably hot. The only time I've been there it got ungodly hot and it wasn't for anything near as wild as Monotonix is supposed to be.
Also, recommending places to eat in NY is incredibly difficult because it's so damn big and every place claims to be the "best _____ in New York".
Also Brooklynvegan.com will let you know who's playing and does a comprehensive job.
just reading this thread is making me want to return to NY....really soon
Ill prob have my honeymoon in New York City.... fuckin amazing place...I really wish I could go back for the Yankees postseason...
U2: 6/28 @ United Center
Lollapalooza: 8/1 @ Grant Park

Well, my full NYC schedule this year is this:
October 16 - Sunset Rubdown - Manhattan Center Grand Ballroom
November 5 - Islands - Bowery Ballroom
November 19 - Dirty Projectors - Music Hall of Williamsburg
November 22 - Echo & the Bunnymen - Hammerstein Ballroom
November 24 - Pixies - Hammerstein Ballroom
December 12 - Fiery Furnaces - Bowery Ballroom
September 24 - Pavement - Central Park
Cafe Himalaya in the East Village on E 1st St. & 1 Ave. Majorly cheap (around $6 per person for dinner entrees), and the best thing on their menu is the momo (Tibetan dumplings). They're BYOB, and will let you sit forever and drink chai or whatnot if you so choose.
Edit: here's the link to the Mike Kelley-curated two day experimental music component to the month long festival.
Here's something I've always wondered: do people in NYC dine out more than others?
If so, is it because it's difficult grocery shopping without a car, or maybe it's difficult to cook in such a small kitchen.
How often, about, would you say you eat out (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) each week.
I can tell you that I eat out maybe twice a week (Friday dinner and possibly a weekend lunch). I don't eat breakfast, I bring my lunch to work, and I cook nearly every single night.
I'm just curious.
I know a folks who have lived in Manhattan for years and have perfectly good kitchens that they have never even touched except maybe to make a pot of coffee or to reheat some leftovers. Friends who live in the outer boroughs tend to cook more for whatever reason -- I'm not sure if that's indicative of an overall trend.
I think it's a combination of factors: grocery shopping is not that difficult, but there are just so so many good cheap takeout and delivery places in any neighborhood. And yes, I do think the smallness of the space means that less people will entertain in, and more will go out to meet others at a restaurant or bar.
When I lived in Manhattan, I sure ate lot of takeout. But mostly that was because anytime I cooked, the smell would linger in my tiny apartment for days and days.
Where is nathan and peter Petrelli when you need them!?
Any NYers been to the Kadinsky exhibition at the Guggenheim? My friend Nick just went and was talking about it for days. I'm so jealous.
