I am a teacher at a public high school in the Bronx. One of the things that we do in my school is take a group of our students out of school to explore the city one day every season. I have taken the students to Chinatown for dim sum and they thought it was remarkable, since the only Chinese food that they ever had was from a Chinese Buffet.
I thought that it would be amazing to take them on a quick food tour around the 5 boroughs on the next trip day. We have use of the subways (not buses), and the trip should be from around 9 AM to 3:30 PM. I think that it would be great if we could grab some food in Queens and Brooklyn and eat some on the ferry to Staten Island. (Is there anything good on the Staten Island side, near the ferry?)
Does anyone have any ideas regarding the logistics of travel or places to stop?
