Out of the Blue

Happy birthday to our oldest niece, who, in an effort to make us wonder where the time goes, turns seven years old today!

A forum post yesterday raised the question about recommendations for a Manhattan visit that are not typical tourist destinations. Since nothing good in NYC remains obscure for too long, the list I've compiled is probably more touristy than the poster had wished, but I figured if I post it here on a slow Sunday it can serve as a guide for others, and perhaps informed New Yorkers can add suggestions:

The number-one rule for an authentic NYC dining experience is to avoid Times Square. No natives eat there, and there's probably a Planet Hollywood and a Hard Rock Cafe near where you came from anyway.

* For the truly daring, follow the advice of an old boss of mine and seek out the vendor with the dirtiest fingernails.

As a New Yorker who has relocated and settled in the mid-south, I'm here to tell ya that you can't really go wrong at any pizzeria in New York. They are all great. Sure some are better than others, but the worst one I've ever had was better than anything you could get down here. In the south, they have the idea of pizza; but getting real NY pizza is basically a pipe dream.

Prez open up an authentic New York pizzeria. I guarantee you it will be popular.
