248 5th Ave
Brooklyn, NY 11215, US

"Anna Klinger and her husband, Emiliano Coppa, bring a touch of the Veneto to Park Slope. Pay special attention to dishes like braised rabbit with black olives and polenta; fat Venetian malfatti (Swiss-chard gnudi); and the hanger steak, which is tinged with balsamic. Klinger's desserts, especially the gelati, are the best in this increasingly restaurant-happy corner of Brooklyn."

Restaurant:

Chelsea Market

75 9th Ave
New York, NY 10011, US

"In 1912 Nabisco sandwiched the Oreo here; since 1997, however, the space has evolved from a bakery landmark to a gourmand's mecca. Original factory floors and winding halls of exposed brick preserve the industrial feel of the original occupant, but Chelsea Market is hardly about utility shopping nowadays with its destination bakeries like Amy's Bread, Eleni's, and Sarabeth's, fresh produce and prepared foods from Buon Italia, and takeout from Thai Wholesale and Ronnybrook Dairy Milk Bar. That Asian powerhouses Buddakan is situated here only underscores the location's culinary importance as do the Food Network headquarters upstairs where Emeril Live and Iron Chef are filmed."

Restaurant:

Corner Bistro

331 W 4th St
New York, NY 10014, US

"Pineapple Pick! Anonymous and Anonymous's pick for Best Burger In Manhattan. And we'd recommend washing it down with a dark McSorley's on tap. Whether you want a booth in back or a spot at the long, carved mahogany bar, prepare to wait in line. The crowd isn't queuing up just for the $2.50 mugs of McSorley's or for the scruffy old bartenders plying their trade with seen-it-all stoicism. What everyone's really here for is the Bistro Burger: an eight-ounce slab of juicy grilled beef piled several inches high with melted cheese, bacon and raw onions. Served on a paper plate that invariably turns into a greasy pulp, it's one of the heftiest, messiest and, at $6.75, cheapest chunks of cow you'll have in this town. The chicken sandwich and grilled cheese are equally tasty, if not exactly healthy, alternatives."

Restaurant:

Craftsteak

85 10th Ave
New York, NY 10011, US

"You could call Craftsteak a steakhouse, but that would be an understatement. The menu is printed daily, and it's as big as a bath mat. Colicchio has also grafted a raw bar onto his Craft concept, kept variations of popular dishes (excellent braised short ribs, tiresome varieties of artisanal mushrooms), and thrown in several obsessively delineated categories of steak (corn-fed beef aged four different ways, Hawaiian grass-fed, several pricey gradations of Wagyu) along with a couple of random soups (try the lobster bisque). Before you even think about steak, you can enjoy sweetbreads as large as a lady's fist (they're too big), a roasted lobster tail (it's too expensive), and an entire lobe of duck foie gras (I didn't dare). There are also ten excellent varieties of salad (order the fava beans with crushed hazelnuts), and a battery of inventive tartares, like salmon belly with lemony cr"

Restaurant:

Frankies 457 Spuntino

457 Court St
Brooklyn, NY 11231, US

"Site of rehearsal dinner! And hence an automatic Pineapple Pick! Anonymous & Anonymous hope you'll enjoy the outstanding cavatelli. The brick-walled, tin-ceilinged spuntino is less than a restaurant (though the food's terrific), more than a bar (affable bartender, respectable Negroni), and already, in its infancy, the sort of homey, affordable, drop-in-anytime place that gives interlopers from distant zip codes a serious case of neighborhood envy. The menu reads like a shopping list, with mix-and-match categories for beans and grains, vegetables, meats, and cheeses, plus a choice of sandwich breads and fillings. But the ingredients are prime (and often organic) and the chefs make the most of them, whether they're dressing long leaves of verdant puntarelle with fragrant olive oil, capers, and anchovies, grating pecorino over bitter escarole, or roasting Brussels sprouts and acorn squash till they're irresistibly sweet."

"Chocolate! In his years at Le Cirque, Jacques Torres earned an international reputation for his over-the-top concoctions: stoves and pianos and ladies' hats. But he left all that behind to convert a brick warehouse on the Brooklyn waterfront into a chocolate factory and become a modern-day Willy Wonka (in a hairnet).

Restaurant:

Magnolia Bakery

401 Bleecker St
New York, NY 10014, US

"Sinful cupcakes! Behind the lacey curtains and homey, small town image lies a big business in Betty Crocker-style confections, so much so that a line seems to snake around the blue-awning corner in perpetuity. Most come for the fabled cupcakes, quaintly frosted in pretty pastel colors, but the cloyingly sweet icing and crumbly cake make it hard to determine exactly what the fuss is all about. Other options are cakes and tarts that sound as if they might have been invented by kids at a fanciful tea party, with flavorings like Oreo cookie and Snickers, but too much sweetness overwhelms these goodies, too. Chocolate pudding pie tarts are refreshingly sparing of sugar, yet a mushy crust keeps it from matching bake sale memories of yore. Overlooked items like the creamy banana pudding better hit the sweet spot, and while the staff brews a decent cup of coffee, a handful of seats and the milling mobs don't make it a great spot for lingering"

Restaurant:

Per Se

10 Columbus Cir, Fl 4th
New York, NY 10019-1107, US

"$$$$ One of NYC's most exclusive, famous and most well regarded restaurants. Located in Time Warner Center. The French Laundry is widely touted as the best restaurant in America, and Per Se seems to have been conceived, rather self-consciously, as its august big-city sibling. The rooms, which look out across the treetops of Central Park, feel grand but mildly antiseptic. The main dining room is colored, by the designer Adam Tihany, in muted tones of gray and brown, and decorated, at either end, with towering arrangements of foxtail lilies, and a working fireplace allows for fireside dining. The hyperattentive and hyperinformed wait staff are dressed in starchy dark suits and fat Armani ties, and as they troop silently to and fro in the ghostly evening light, the whole scene looks elegant but solemn and vaguely stagy, like a studious California version of what a first-class New York restaurant should be. There"

Restaurant:

Peter Luger

178 Broadway
Brooklyn, NY 11211, US

"The most famous steakhouse in NYC. The room isn't handsome, street-slick, or even particularly welcoming. It recalls the kind of establishment that sports a banner running from beam to beam every year proclaiming !oktoberfest! The patrons may have come here straight from their booths at the Javits Center. The staff goes about its nonstop business with cordial if mechanical efficiency, serving onion-and-tomato salads, creamed spinach, and pasty fried potatoes. So why is it always more crowded than Toys 'R' Us on the weekend before Christmas? Because there are few gastronomic sensations that confirm the good life better than a hunk of a spectacular steak. And Peter Luger can broil and deliver one magnificently aged and marbleized two-finger-thick porterhouse after another with the unfailing certainty of Dustin Hoffman adenoidally reciting baseball scores. So don't even ask for a menu. Get big. Eat beef."

Greek wines and beer round out the Hellenic experience."

Sandwiched between pricey Brooklyn Heights properties, pretty tree-lined streets, and rows of conveniently placed benches, the Promenade is also a convenient place to start sightseeing in Brooklyn.

A whopping 560,000 square feet, the city's second-largest museum contains a world-class collection of roughly 1.5 million works covering a wide cultural swath and virtually every period in art history. Its commanding Beaux-Arts structure, designed by McKim, Mead and White, was set to become the largest art institution in the world, back in 1895. (The plans were dashed when Brooklyn became just another borough two years later and the funding headed north to the Met.) After decades of lagging maintenance, the museum revived itself in the last two decades of the twentieth century via massive renovations designed to reposition its famed holdings of ancient Egyptian antiquities and century-spanning American Art. The Egypt Reborn installation traces over 3,000 years worth of artifacts (among them, the prized Bird Lady figurine and the Cartonnage of Nespanetjerenpere).

"In 1913, after his Grand Central rail line switched from steam to electricity, Cornelius Vanderbilt replaced his 1871 depot with a colossal, 49-acre "city within a city" of concrete, steel, and limestone that sat on three miles of tunnel and pushed 10 stories below its lowest level. With its majestic vaulted Sky Ceiling depicting constellations, a series of Roman-inspired ramps designed to keep pedestrians on the move from the street to their trains, and 60-ft. arched windows that streamed sunlight into a grand concourse that has become an enduring symbol of perpetual motion, the Beaux Arts terminal soon became the busiest train station in the nation. It also became an American landmark thanks, in part, to the role it played in welcoming Hollywood stars and in shuttling troops and supplies during World War II. In the late 1970s, after the downfall of the rail system, developers did their best to send the rapidly decaying and decrepit structure the way of its demolished rival Penn Station, but a Supreme Court ruling upheld its landmark status. In 1998, an extensive restoration that included the long overdue building of a second marble staircase has returned the jewel to its former radiance and polish. Today 700,000 people pass through the terminal daily, whether to rush to one of the 538 departures of the three commuter lines or to shop or dine in some of the city"

Guggenheim Museum

1071 5th Ave
New York, NY 10128, US

"When Frank Lloyd Wright designed an inverted ziggurat and placed it across from Central Park in 1959, he threw the museum and architectural world into disarray. Instead of cube-shaped galleries designed to be entered and exited, Wright designed a space as exciting as the art it would contain. Visitors, ideally, shoot to the top of the sunlit glass dome by elevator then saunter down six sloping ramps to view art on curved walls. The interior is designed like a nautilus shell so you can see art from multiple levels simultaneously. And the distance and height from which you see the art, ideally, changes the way you see it. There are, still, annexes off to the side, holding the permanent collection of late 19th and early 20th century painters, from swirly, turbulent Van Goghs and jazzy Kandinskys to exuberant Picassos and Braques. But the nucleus of the Guggenheim is the rotunda itself. The organic, spiral shape is repeated and countered by the contours of the art and sculpture on view, the columns on which the rotunda hinges, and even the gold drinking fountains with their half-circles of water and round repositories. Since 1988, director Thomas Krens has irritated and enlivened the art world with showy, populist exhibits from motorcycles to Mapplethorpe, and from video artists Bill Viola and Nam June Paik to the interdisciplinary conceptualist Matthew Barney. But traditional modernists need not avoid this dynamic, tilt-and-twist space"

The Cloisters

99 Margaret Corbin Dr
Manhattan, NY, US

"This uptown branch of the Metropolitan Museum of Art is worth the 45-minute subway ride from midtown (plus a pleasant 10-minute walk through Fort Tryon Park.) Perched on the tip of Manhattan, the castle-like Museum is comprised of five Medieval cloisters imported from France and filled with art and artifacts. Perhaps the most celebrated attractions are The Unicorn Tapestries, a group of seven wall hangings that vividly portray the mythological hunt and capture of a unicorn. (The flowers in the tapestries, woven of wool and silk, are depicted in such detail that researchers have identified many of them.) Other gallery objects include religious sculptures, water vessels shaped like animals, illuminated manuscripts, stained glass and ivories. Many visitors come for the building itself: One room recreates a 12th-century chapel and the monastery gardens are breathtaking. With its antiquated structure and amazing vistas, the Museum is also featured in numerous films including Coogan's Bluff and Keeping the Faith."

The Cyclone

1902 Surf Ave
Brooklyn, NY 11224, US

"Famous rollercoaster in Coney Island. In the period since it first opened on June 26, 1927, the Cyclone has emerged as the outdoor amusement industry's most famous, most influential, and most copied individual ride. Brothers Jack and Irving Rosenthal commissioned Vernan Keenan to design, and Harry C. Baker to construct, a monumental wooden-tracked twister, which was forced to be exceptionally tight and steep because of the small ground space that was available to them. Construction then began on a site historically significant in the world of roller coasters -- the Cyclone occupies the space, which contained the world's very first roller coaster, LaMarcus A. Thompson's Switchback Railway, as well as the world's first successful looping roller coaster, Loop The Loop. With power supplied by the Eisenberg Brothers of Brooklyn, signs from Menheimer and Weiss of New York City, steel from the National Bridge Company, also of New York City, and lumber from Cross, Austin & Ireland, located in Long Island City, the Cyclone quickly became Coney Island's number one attraction, a status it maintains to this day. When the Rosenthal Brothers left Coney Island to operate their newest property, Palisade Amusement Park, they turned over the operation of the Cyclone to Chris Feuchts, who lovingly maintained and ran the ride for decades. Eventually, ownership of Cyclone was acquired by the City of New York, and it was operated by the City's Parks Department. On June 18, 1975, Dewey and Jerome Albert, owners of Astroland Park, received authorization to operate the Cyclone under a leasing agreement with New York City. The Alberts had teams of carpenters and iron workers completely rehabilitate the ride, which reopened to great fanfare on July 1st of that year. Since that time, Astroland Park has invested millions of dollars in the upkeep of the Cyclone -- today, it probably runs better than it did on the day it opened, and has the highest safety standards in the outdoor amusement industry. The Cyclone has consistently ranked at or near the top of every roller coaster top ten list published. It has been proclaimed the world's greatest by a broad spectrum of media institutions and roller coaster aficionados. Time Magazine quoted Charles Lindbergh as saying that a ride on the Cyclone was more thrilling than his historic first solo flight across the Atlantic Ocean. Emilio Franco, a mute since birth, regained his voice on the Cyclone, uttering his first words ever -- "I feel sick"! In April 2001, singer Nikki Lauren became the first person ever to present a live musical performance in the Cyclone's historic loading station. An official New York City Landmark since July 12, 1988, Cyclone was listed in the New York State Register of Historic Places on June 31, 1991. National Historic Landmark status followed, on June 26, 1991. On April 14, 1992, Brooklyn Borough President Howard Golden issued a citation to Jerome Albert and the late Dewey Albert for their operation of both Astroland and the Cyclone, saluting them for being the primary energizing force in the regeneration of the Coney Island Amusement District."

Whitney Museum of American Art

945 Madison Ave
New York, NY 10021, US

"This Madison Avenue gem is undoubtedly the place to go to view truly eclectic contemporary art. Admission fees may seem a little steep, but the collegiate atmosphere and bold selection of 20th century works keep visitors coming back in droves. Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney, herself a sculptor, opened a small art studio in the Village with 500 pieces from her personal collection. Initially, she offered to merge her works with the Metropolitan Museum of Art and even promised to provide the extra funding to build a new wing. When the Met didn't arrive at an immediate decision, she and Juliana Force (the Whitney's first director who became instrumental in formulating its original concept), opened a space on W. 8th St. in 1931. The Whitney eventually moved to a bigger site on W. 54th St. in the 1950s and finally settled in its current location, designed by Marcel Breuer, in 1966. The Whitney's permanent collection now holds about 14,000 pieces, including works by Georgia O'Keeffe, Andy Warhol, Charles Sheeler and Jackson Pollock. The museum has seven floors (five above ground, two basement levels) made of rock, wood and concrete. Mirroring many of its exhibitions, the building produces a larger-than-life effect, with giant freight elevators and unusually high ceilings. A word to the wise: try to catch the exhibits during weekday afternoons or risk standing on slow-moving lines that wrap around the corner."
