My favourite place is Bryant Park to sit and people-watch. It is a refuge when it is hot, sitting under the trees, enjoying a cool beverage or a deli meal. There is always something happening there!
In Grand Central Terminal I head for Boots Pizza on the lower level for a great slice of pizza for lunch.
Visit the market in Grand Central Terminal and pick up some cheese and fruit to enjoy later on. Murray’s Cheeses have a huge selection of cheese.
Walk the Hi-Line…the park above the city on the old rail line not used anymore.
The Heartland Brewery at the base of the Empire State Building is great for meals, and the beers are varied and good.
I like to go to Au bon Pain for a pastry and coffee or tea and a sit-down.
Herald Square outside of Macy’s is great for sitting and people-watching.
