Hi Patrick,

Most of New York is a walkable treat.  Still, you might want to consider a few of these.

There are over 30,000 places to eat in New York, and everybody has their favorite.  However, the bottom line is, if you go hungry there, it's because you're trying to.

If you are looking for an authentic New York dining experience consider eating a Katz's Deli. It is Located on the corner of Houston and Ludlow. Open since 1888, it's one of the last real delicatessens in New York City. If you've ever seen the film "When Harry Met Sally", it's where Meg Ryan's famous scene was filmed. It still serves the best Pastrami, anywhere!

For afterhours relaxation I’d recommend McSorley's Old Ale House, at 15 E. 7th Street in the east village, or Pete's Tavern. Both claim to be the oldest pub in New York.

McSorley's was the last of the "men only" bars in New York. Women weren't allowed in until August of 1970, and that was a result of legal action taken against them. It is said that nothing has been removed from the walls since 1910.

Happy Travels!

I agree the Bowery and the Lower East Sideare fun areas to explore.  Along Orchard St are many shops and restaurants.  There are some great delis lin the area like Katz's Deli and Russ & Daughters.  All within easy walking distance.  You can meander downtown to Chinatown New York.  Lower Manhattan has its own free shuttle bus.  You can explore Battery Park,  then take a water taxi back uptown.  Lower Manhattan is a fascinating part of the city with Wall Street, the city government and many grand and historic old buildings.

Walk the Bowery - more lighting stores than anywhere on the planet.  Amazing selection of lights, lamps, you name it.  Plus a bunch of restaurant supply stores if you're into that sort of thing.  Then you can go deeper into the Lower East Side to find the original Doughnut Plant for some of the best gourmet donuts around (another location in Chelsea is larger with seats).
