"From Bowery to the Bronx"

Only 1 street away from the Lexington Avenue 4/5/6, Third Ave is a place filled with food, fun and plenty to do. Whether it's going out all night at the bars strewn along Third Ave. between 2nd St.-17...

"Great Downtown: Awful Uptown"

- JenMac
2nd Avenue is really sleepy and aesthetically boring uptown but as you move down it becomes really lively and interesting. The UES is one of the most boring areas in town, but the East Village is fan...

"Convenient, delicious, and loud"

- dberkowitz
It's a lovely, convenient stretch, most populous between the Park Ave subway and 2nd Ave, where it dead ends at some apartment buildings before continuing on to the East River. On the 2nd to Park Ave...

"Old hotel row"

- JenMac
The block between Broadway and 5th is mostly grand, old hotels. These hotels don't get any love anymore ... but, I think they should. The corner of Broadway and 31st is the former Grand Hotel. It u...

"One good bar and nothing else"

- JenMac
30th in Kip's Bay starts off with the NYU Medical Center on 1st Avenue. This is slightly less creepy as having Bellevue down your street -- but, then again, Bellevue is only a few blocks down. Livin...
