A place to just sit and relax with your friends, Spiegel is the restaurant for you, especially if you like coffee. With an extensive variety of coffee options to balance out the international menu of entrées and more, it’s a great place for an early riser to visit. They offer items such as fresh pressed juices, grilled shell steak, waffles, homemade granola, baked feta and a grilled Portobello sandwich.

This is a must! The pastrami is to die for! This is an expensive sandwich but you will remember it forever. it also so large you can split it easily with someone. When you go to the counter to order, ask for a sample. They are happy to give you one.

It’s always the 1950s at Trailer Park Lounge. Festooned with kitsch, fairy lights, and photos of Elvis Presley impersonators, why not run away to a simpler time of post-war optimism and Bobby-soxers? Chow down big plates of backyard home cooking, like beef burgers, mac and cheese, and nachos, and wash them down with a pitcher of margarita or memory-obscuring cocktails, such as Jim Bob’s IQ.

The East Village is home to the greatest concentration of community gardens in the United States, all of which were hard-won by activists. My favorite,Parque de Tranquilidad is exactly what its name suggests, a place of total tranquility that seems removed even from the East Village. If not for the buildings surrounding it, it would be easy to place the small park in the Catskills, and however tiny it might be, it’s easy to lose yourself in.

At first glance, the area around Tompkins Square Park seems like the quintessential New York City neighborhood, with its lively restaurant scene and trendy shops. But it’s was not always this way. Sitting at the heart of East Village, Tompkins Square Park was once home to those on the margins of society—outcasts, immigrants, and homeless alike gathered at this center (and before that, a haunt for artists like Patti Smith and Robert Mapplethorpe). Now it is lovely park with hidden secrets,like the Hare Krishna Tree. On a warm day , bring lunch and enjoy the local scene.

Visiting this museum might be the best way to learn the essence of East Village. (Short of assimilating into an artist’s squat or chaining yourself to a tree in a community garden!) The museum is housed in well-known C-Squat, which was sold by the government to a non-profit for $1 in 2002, and now is being turned into a low-income co-op for the squatters who live there. The museum itself showcases New York’s recent history of protests, grassroots movements, and environmental activism.

While the cost of living has gone up, the White Horse Tavern still maintains its “working class vibe.” It’s old and a bit run-down, but iconic nonetheless.

McSorley’s Old Ale House offers two drinks: McSorley’s Dark Ale and McSorley’s Light Ale. Despite their lack of variety, or perhaps because of it, the bar has thrived throughout the years, managing to keep fairly low prices. Visit McSorley’s on a weekday afternoon, before crowds of tourists pour in to visit “the oldest bar in New York” . It’s been kept much the same as it was when it was opened in the mid-1800s by the Irish immigrant “Old John” McSorley; you can even eat the same meal of cheese, crackers, and raw onions. Pair that with a light and a dark beer — $5.50 for two — and sit in the front table by the pay phone (pick it up when it rings).

Mother of Pearl is the modern Tiki Bar with a space that’s aerielike and bright. On warm days, the cheery front room opens wide to Avenue A, with sheer curtains and hardy-banana plants lining the entrance. Take a seat at a flowery banquette or post up at the tiled bar atop a bar stool modeled after Polynesian sculpture, and ask head bartender Jane Danger for a Shark Eye cocktail ($15) — it blends passion fruit with Maraschino and bourbon and is poured over pebble ice into a shark-shaped glass. To finish, Danger dashes cherry-red tiki bitters into the drink and lets them dribble down the side of the shark’s “mouth,”. Enjoy!!

Mother of Pearl is the modern Tiki Bar with a space that’s aerielike and bright. On warm days, the cheery front room opens wide to Avenue A, with sheer curtains and hardy-banana plants lining the entrance. Take a seat at a flowery banquette or post up at the tiled bar atop a bar stool modeled after Polynesian sculpture, and ask head bartender Jane Danger for a Shark Eye cocktail ($15) — it blends passion fruit with Maraschino and bourbon and is poured over pebble ice into a shark-shaped glass. To finish, Danger dashes cherry-red tiki bitters into the drink and lets them dribble down the side of the shark’s “mouth,”. Enjoy!!
This sliver of a bar seems fashioned for close encounters, from the velvety dark-blue banquettes to the mirrored back bar that allows for covert touch-ups while waiting for your date to arrive. But the most obvious nod to intimacy are the call buttons at every table, guaranteeing that you won’t be disturbed unless you want to be.

http://www.vsparties.com/ Pop-up hip-hop parties aren’t new to the city but The VS Saturday-night parties offer a more universal concept. Promoter Clarence Fruster launched the roving series with DJs ranging from big names like Talib Kweli to locals like Austin Millz spinning hour-long “versus” sets — think Beyoncé versus Rihanna, Drake versus Meek Mill, and old-school Bad Boy versus Roc-A-Fella — that elicit plenty of grinding and “yaaas’s” of approval from the crowd. A $15 to $30 cover charge gets partygoers an hour’s worth of an open bar sponsored by top-shelf liquors like 1800 Tequila and Ciroc. Last one I went to Kanye West stopped by for a set.

There’s a large back room with picnic-table-like seating, and a front room with plenty of barstools and, happily, no televisions to distract your drinking companions. It’s a favorite of bartenders across the city, in part thanks to its reliable 4 a.m. close time. The food’s excellent — order the fries with curry sauce — and the booze is priced in line with the area. Plus, the beer list is long and varied, even for this craft-crazy city. Swift’s a perfect place to end the night, even if you began it there.

Sightseeing
St. Mark’s Place is punk’s geographical embodiment. If it’s funky, sassy, and usually pretty cheap, it’s probably for sale on St. Marks Place, which is the alternate name for 8th Street between Third Avenue and Avenue A. The strip between Third and Second avenues, however, is a permanent street market with countless T-shirt stands, tattoo parlors, and boho jewelry storefronts. Beyond endless sunglasses and hat stands, here used-record and rock-memorabilia collectors can have a field day exploring.

Shopping
If you love coffee, this store is a must. Super delicious aroma right when you enter the shop brings me back here monthly. They have a huge array of barrels of various varietals and blends in both full caffeine strength and also in decaf coffees

The bargains aren’t what they used to be in the Historic Orchard Street Shopping District, which basically runs from Houston to Canal along Allen, Orchard, and Ludlow streets, spreading outward along both sides of Delancey Street. There are a handful of old-fashioned lingerie (really girdle), leather goods, shoes, linens, and fabrics on the bolt shops. But the street today is mostly a hipster haunt, filled with art galleries, designer-owned tiny boutiques, craft beer emporiums and lots of bars and restaurants.

The mother of all discount department stores is Century 21, across Church Street from the World Trade Center site. New inventory flows in literally all day, as do throngs of customers. Despite its often elbow-to-elbow aisles, the store is worth a visit—just aim to go on a weekday morning to take advantage of its bargains before the crowds appear.

Don’t expect to find the bargain of a lifetime on Chinatown’s crowded streets, but there’s always great browsing. The fish and herbal markets along Canal, Mott, Mulberry, and Elizabeth streets are fun for their bustle and exotica—as well as for the handful of Italian joints still hanging on from the Little Italy days. Dispersed among them (especially along Canal), you’ll find a mind-boggling collection of knockoff sunglasses, handbags, fragrances, shoes, and watches. It can be a fun browse, but quality is questionable, and usually so are the sellers—and remember to bargain before busting out your wallet!
