I could never go on Holiday on my own, but I travel a lot with work and have friends in quite a few cities abroad so eating out drinking doesnt become a problem. Although I have been stuck in some shitholes on my own working and get some free time so have to entertain myself which I have no problem with. I have travelled on my own for Holiday plenty of times, as Im meeting friends who live in say New York and staying with them for the week. I couldnt bring myself to go on my own or knowing someone wasnt greeting me at the other end.

Comedy clubs are great, and I didn't get ID'd either, and I look about 12 - can get tickets from loads of people up near broadway.
Museums are really good too, especially if you are into space (no space geek Oops )
I spent about 3 days on my own and never got bored, theres plenty to do, Barneys is the best shop in the world.
Spent most of my time walking around in pure amazement, absolutely loved it over there.

go to sway or the rub over in bk for a night out, go to for the best pizza, and hear for the corn all the shops are in this area, theres nothing much uptown except the tourist spots of course, talking of shops, im never impressed with shops in NY, as the way is now, you can get everything on the internet, really hard these days to cop something that'll blow everyone away with back home, just hit the streets, get lost, check out all the main attractions, just be a tourist!

Off to NYC in a couple of weeks.

Anyone recommend any decent breakfast/lunch/dinner spots? Got a couple of dinners booked but would like to find a couple of chilled out burger/Mexican type places.

Staying Lower East Side. Thanks

Shake Shack was the best burger i had in NYC. You should go to Baohaus on 14th St between 2nd and 3rd avenue and Caracas Arepa Bar on 7th St. on 1st avenue. Both are relaxed and great.

Gimme a PM if you want more suggestions. It felt like I spent my whole 4 months in NYC eating.
