I'll be in NYC next weekend (Nov. 4th-7th), visiting from Toronto, running the marathon. I need some cheap, can't miss recs for the weekend. I'll be needing lots of carbs, so anything pasta or noodle based is good. There's room for other food as well. Different, local and ethnic is key. I'm hoping to have breakfast in a cafe, lunch from street vendors, and affordable dinners where I don't have to dress up too much.
Any help would be appreciated.
Also, sights to be seen along the way would be great.
I'm staying in Brooklyn Heights, a few stops from Lower Manhattan, but will travel for something unique.
