I finally made it to the Arepa Lady. She and her arepas were exactly as they've been described, and they were very good (I liked the yellow ones best, but the large white ones were good too; I didn't try the small ones). I'm looking forward to going back, which leads me to my main question.
From what Jim has said, the Arepa Lady isn't always there, even on weekends after 10:30 P. M. I myself had gone in search of her once before with no luck, even though the weather was nice. Since I'd hate to go all that way and come back empty-stomached, so to speak, what alternatives does a chowhound have in that neighborhood at that time of night if the Arepa Lady isn't there? The neighborhood has quite a few restaurants, taco stands, etc. open late at night, but which are good? I go by subway, incidentally, so it has to be within walking distance.
