I plan on flying to New York toward the end of July. I'm going to be in Times Square, Statue of Liberty, Empire State Building.... I'm looking on here to see if anyone would be interested in chilling when I'm out there. I've never been there or have family currently residing there. I'm looking for someone that is very city oriented and knows there way around town.

 

PM me if your located in the New York area and interested :cool: [/font][/size]

 

 

 

I seriously doubt anybody wants to hang out with you at Times Square or the statue of Liberty you fucking tool.

 

Go to the hood and write on shit like a normal person.

i'll try to post something remotely helpful:

 

1) yeah, stay the fuck away from wall street. i'm from new york and i haven't gone to the empire state building or any of that other shit since i was really young. it's whatever. honestly, you won't really be missing much other than standing on a tall building.

 

2) eat nothing but pizza. but, if you want something other than pizza: take the L to the myrtle-wyckoff stop, go out the entrance on wyckoff and get tacos and stuff from the truck out there. shit is cheap and delicious. make sure you go to the one on WYCKOFF... not the truck around the corner on myrtle.

 

3) ride elevated train lines. all of them.

 

4) go to coney island and walk on the boardwalk down to brighton beach. get food there.

 

5) go to the cloisters: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Cloisters

 

6) go to astoria, and take a photo of yourself in front of the entrance to rykers island. you'll be the envy of all your friends. if nobody has done that planking shit in front of the sign, you should do that.

go to astoria park, too.

 

7) go to the met (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metropolitan_Museum_of_Art) and do NOT pay the suggested 20 dollar donation. give them a quarter.

 

beyond that, i don't know what else to tell you. don't buy weed in washington square park. and if you really want to go to the top of something tall AND times square, theres a hotel in times square with an open roof door and it's cool to hang out up there looking at all the idiots trying to get into the aforementioned times square tgifridays.

 

hope this helps.

Are you talking about El Paisa on Myrtle and Irving?

Their Al Pastor is pretty damn good, but I think they've fallen off. They used to do the tacos proper, now they gringo them up by using tomatoes and shredded lettuce and don't add the avocado sauce.

 

The truck that's behind McDonald's (right off the stop) is pretty good. I always get attitude when I go to the cart right outside the station so I stopped going there. The Chimi stand that is next to KFC is also damn good.

 

The taco place right off the Dekalb stop that looks like a diner is also really good.

 

If you like sushi, there are a ton of places, but if you want to save some money and drink some beers, I recommend going to Edo on E 17th (btwn Broadway and 5th). I went the other night and they had 50% off beers when you ordered food. Get the spicy roll combo and drink all night. It's right around the corner from Union Square.

i know that spot, but i was talking about the cart outside the door if you make a left immediately after going out of the turnstiles (onto wyckoff, on the sidewalk in front of the station).

Some food recommendations.

The spot screams Brooklyn hipster, but the food is fucking good. If you like oysters, try it out.

 

 

 

A good Mexican spot in the Village is Mercadito.

The portions are small and pricey compared to street food or your local Chili's, but it's really fucking good.

 

If you do go to Mercadito, you should then bar hop around to the speak easy joints. They are all in the same general area and you'll get to walk around the East Village.

 

Death and Company

Mayahuel - (Tequila and Mezcal themed)

Cienfuegos (Rum themed)

There are also tons of other bars and a few other speak easy joints in that area. Just wander from bar to bar drinking.

 

There's also Please Don't Tell, but you need to make reservations.

You use a secret door in a phone booth to enter.

If you want to be a tourist and see NYC, take the 7 bus from 110th street, down Columbus Ave, to Broadway, through Times Square, and into Union Square (14th St.) It'll cost you $2.25 and you'll see most of Manhattan.

 

Then make your way down to The Staten Island Ferry for a free boat ride from Lower Manhattan to Staten Island. You'll See NYC from the water, Manhattan, Brooklyn, Staten Island, and even New Jersey. . . and best of all the shit is free.

 

I'd personally do a "Five Boro" tour if I came to NYC, I wouldn't spend all of my time in Manhattan.

 

Check out The Bronx, Brooklyn, and Queens as well.
