Restaurants:
May's Place in St. Mark's Place - an amazing sushi restaurant. all sushi 50% off everyday, haha.

I forgot the name of the place, but right next to May's Place is this small little restaurant that serves the best fries! You'll smell it a block away!

Momofuku Milk Bar in East Village and Midtown - a branch off of the restaurant, the milk bar has these quirky flavors of soft serve and cookies. my favorite soft serves are cereal milk (which tastes just like milk that had cereal in it), and blueberry muffin (which tastes just like what it is...except soft serve version, haha!). the cookies are ingenious as well. the compost cookie (pretzels, potato chips, coffee, oats, butterscotch,
chocolate chips) and the blueberry cream are the best!

St. Marks has the best food, hands down, for the best price. There's $1 pizza and $1 falafel, and my mouth is watering just thinking about it, haha!

Parks:
I love Battery Park. It's quieter and more low key than Central Park.

Bars/Concerts:
Bowery Ballroom (on Bowery St)
The Knitting Factory (in Brooklyn)
Gramercy Theatre (on 127 East 23rd Street)

The best thing to do in New York City is basically just roam around. I've lived here all my life so far and there are still places I haven't managed to find.
