More Details:

Ess-A-Bagel: These humongous bagels are considered by some to be the best in NYC. They deliver, so if you don’t feel like leaving your hotel room, you can have your bagels brought right to your door! Well, to the hotel’s front entrance. (This photo was taken awhile ago; don’t worry, I’ve updated my phone since then.)

Artichoke Pizza: Get the artichoke slice – you won’t find it anywhere else!

53rd & 6th Halal Cart: There are dozens of halal carts in the city, but this one is by far the most famous. You’ll probably hear people referring to it as simply “chicken and rice”. The original one opens after 7pm and is located in front of the Hilton, but the one across the street opens earlier in the day and is operated by the same guys. Don’t worry, the food is just as good!

  1. Love your wonderful suggestions. I was in NYC last year and plan to go again in a few months.

    Thank you for visiting my blog today. I appreciate the time you took to stop by. May your day be filled with joy and peace.

    • Thanks so much! I have a couple of friends getting their Master’s Degrees from Columbia, and they all seem to love the school. Hope you end up going there!
