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.

I only hope that the Kardashian (sp) fans who are so worried about what she will name her baby aren’t too shocked when they see an oops on their pay check. We are becoming immune to anything that people throw at us. Shootings, subway pushings, gas price hikes, decreases in wages, layoffs have all phased us for only a moment, if at all. Maybe that’s the way it’s meant to be. My dad used to call it “whistling when you walk thru the cemetery”. Meaning: Trying to act as if you are not scared. There is no use in being scared but there is no reason that reasonable human beings cannot at least be aware of things that go on in this world. I realize we cannot singlehandedly stop any of the chaos. But we at least need to be aware of it. “Take away the guns”. “Don’t arm school teachers.” “Trust the government”. Have you noticed the squeaky wheel gets the grease? Those that protest the loudest get it done. Prayer in school. Merry Christmas. Ten Commandments. What’s happened to them is someone paid enough attention to delete a great deal of that. The rest of us just kept our mouths shut. See what that got?
