My college age son and 3 of his buddies are making a 3 day pilgrimage to New York and staying at the Crown Brownstone Hostel at 958 St. Marks in Brooklyn. They plan to spend most of their time in Manhattan and will go to Yankee Stadium to catch a game on the evening of the 21st. I think they plan to take the subway into Manhattan and then travel up and down--I know a couple of spots for them in Lower Manhattan and one or two in Upper Manhattan. But what about in Brooklyn? Places that would either be near their hostel or en route between the hostel and Manhattan/Yankee Stadium? They are adventurous eaters but I know they'd love a slice of good pizza.
Any advice is appreciated!!!
