Where do y'all buy your daily comestibles in Manhattan? I'm here for awhile at 5th and 59th and will go broke if I have to buy everything from room service. I want a source of cereals, fresh produce items, milk and also some CRUSHED ICE so I don't have to pay room service to bring it.
As I recall last time this happened, I was near Penn Station and bought some ice from a Korean market under the table because the cashier went back and filled a plastic grocery bag from their ice machine. But that can't be the norm.
New Yorkers look great but that can't be just because you never eat at home and never put ice in your drinks. Let me in on your secrets please.
P.S. Yes I know there's a Whole Foods in Columbus Circle but am looking for closer/alternate sources.
