I have my parents fooled. They think I'm going to New York to look for a job, but I'm really going to eat and see shows. Silly parents.
Anyway, I have 9 days and a decent (though not outrageous) budget, garnered from my recently completed summer job in L.A.
I'll be staying with a friend in Chelsea but I'll go anywhere for good grub (she's a vegetarian, which may prove important).
So, help me out please: what cheap great places should I hit in my 9 days?
