My husband and I are flying to NY for 2 nights to see Wicked, and are trying to plan our one free day. We would like to spend the day exploring one particular neighborhood, instead of dragging ourselves all over town. We would love suggestions for a neighborhood with the following:
1. A bagel - I am from Los Angeles and would like to see why everyone says that New York bagels are so much better
3. Hot Dog from a stand
4. A neighborhood Italian restaurant - no celebrity chefs, no fancy dinners, just good old school food & atmosphere
5. late night after the show reccomendations - diner? bar? dessert?
I know it's a tall order, but any suggestions would be appreciated. Please no tourist hangouts!
