Hotels/restaurants/ money savers in that order.
Michelangelo Hotel Room
Al with Esat Aloshi at Rosie O'Grady's
We always stay at the Michelangelo. Everything is around
Food: Carmine’s 44th and Broadway. They tell you to split entrees…because they are so huge. Salad for one and pasta for one will still leave food on your plate. Be prepared to wait a while. Its popular.
Carnegie Deli. .a NY must. Huge sandwiches but very good. Landmark place. 52nd /7th. Alternative with great desserts, Roxy Deli. 47th on TS.
Ben Bensons for steak but I prefer Uncle Jacks 56th st. or Ruth Chris….yes …Ruth Chris, next door to the hotel.
Ellen’s starlight diner, brk, lunch, or dinner. Singing waiters cheap food. Great experience.
Chinese…WO Pah….(call me about this one)
Get the 27.50 subway card….good for a week, will save you over a hundred dollars or more on cab fare and it’s fun and safe.
Food: McCormick and Kuleto’s. waterfront. Great seafood, a tad pricy, entrees around 25 to 30 but every table has a great view of the water including
ELO trading post. On Sutter. Most magnificent Asian fusion food around. Butternut squash dumplings and ribs the size of
Uncle Vitos. Pasta and ravioli and home made pizza. Less than ten bucks and cheap wine and beer. Bush @ Mason.
Sears….like the store …..on Sutter. Home of silver dollar pancakes, great breakfast, super reuben sandwiches and full meals at a very low price.
Aliottos, Scomas, seafood at the wharf…lot of money touristy, good..but touristy.
Clam chowder in the bowl which is made of cut out sourdough bread. Five bucks and great...Pier 39 at the Wharf.
If you are going to
I am writing this hours ahead of what I hope will be an election that will be determined by the time we all wake up tomorrow. I know deep down, there will be dissatisfaction no matter which way it goes. We are a polarized nation and that is putting it mildly. I hope both candidates are gracious enough to congratulate the other and may the winner work to put hands across the aisle and work for compromise. We can no longer do what we have been doing and remain the great nation we are. The time for calling names and making hate speeches needs to be put aside. Neither party likes the other and that is not going to change, but watching NFL players at games end, shaking hands and patting one another on the back tells me we can do this at a much higher stakes game. A game that will determine not only who wins, but who exists. We see in the last days that our infrastructure everywhere is in dire need of replacement or repair. We see invisible jobs and an economy that needs fixing. Whether we are Texas or Tennessee, South Carolina or South Dakota, New Jersey or New Mexico ….we are the United…I said United States of America. Let’s start acting like it. God Bless America.!!
