Food Scene

32nd Street is known as Korea Town. It is filled with amazing Korean Restaurants, Kaoreoke and delicous desserts. I enjoy this location because of the unlimited options and good prices. It is almost like a food court, but much better. My favorites are the barbeque on the left and the ramen all the way in the back, and The Spot on the 3rd floor has award winning dessert and presentation. For a higher end Korean experience Miss Korea (across the street) is one of the best Korean Barbecues in Manhattan. Woorjip is the most budget friendly option for food on the go but still good quality. For date night, try the second floor of the Stanford Hotel for a chique Wine Bar with a piano.

This is my go to breakfeast spot on a budget. On weekends they serve brunch very late. After much trial and error I enjoy the crêpes and the Q2 Breakfeast bowl as my favorites. Great for two and to mix and match. I enjoy getting this to go and eating it at the park or on the rooftop lounge. Also very healthy food and delicious food options throughout the day.

Some of the best quality food in the area. Good date spot. A little more expensive. Hotel bar in the back is a good night lounge. A little more expensive than my other options.

Closer than shake shack, and I think better. If you download the app you will get a free burger. Try the brussel sprout sides!

If you look outside your window and see lights and are wondering where they are coming from, it's this fun little spot across the street. Usually not too hard to get into. Drinks are expensive. Great view of the Empire State Building.

New hotel that opened in the last year trying to be the new go to night spot. It's a similar crowd to meat packing. Great decor for fun instagram pictures, including a carousel dinner table and fun statues and signs.

You're in NYC, you should go to a speakeasy! Step inside 1920s NY in this brand new beautiful spot. The whole staff sings and joins the piano player after 8PM for a fun night, great vibes and playful drink presentation. Go between 5-7 for a more intimiate intimate evening.

Sightseeing

This is a must to visit any time of the year. In the winter, they have the best ice skating rink in NYC (less touristy than the others, and cheaper, only pay for your ice skates!) Plus they have the winter wonderland. Go in the summer and there is almost always a fun event planned for that night. Monday movie nights, Thursday FREE outdoor yoga with 1000 people (its amazing) 6-7 I've seen it all at this park, from Musical Chairs with 1,000 people, free plays, the Opera, Kareem Abdul Jabaar doing a book signing, paint and sip, bingo, trivia, ping pong, bocce ball, etc.

Entertainment & Activities

This is NYCs best kept secret. The store doesn't sell anything, it just shows the latest and greatest technology, especially within AR/VR. I've personally done VR Skiing with real skiis, VR surfing with a real surf board and I've bounced around in weightlessness space astronaut simulation. They also have free speakers like Ariana Huffington and free concerts with free drinks (check their schedule) Afterwards you are in the middle of the iconic meatpacking and the highline. If it's during the day go across the street to Le Bain at the standard for a stunning view of NYC (very difficult to get into at night)

This subway hub has everything If you're going somewhere, odds are the NQRW and BDFM trains will bring you there. Take the NQRW Uptown one stop to be in the heart of times square (its also a 6 minute walk, or 3 stops to be in Central Park) Going to Jersey City, Hoboken or downtown / the West Village, jump on the PATH!

Best place for everyday items. I recommend this place for souvenirs at the best price. They are cheaper than Amazon, and it has almost everything! I get snacks here or anything you may have forgot on your trip.
