Next stop on the 2/3 line is Christopher Street. I think its to time to get up and get in to something new.

I'm in NYC next week. My wife's there for work, and I'm just bumming around.
Every time I'm there my first stop is West 8th and 6th. Electric Ladyland is near there.

I used to go down there to eat and drink and then late at night ride that subway all the way up to 72nd and Broadway, grab a hot dog at Gray's Papaya and stumble home to 71st St and West End. Miss that.

Gray's - good times. Are they still $1.00?

No, they went to $1.50, and then I think to $2.

Do you guys have a favorite pizza place there?
I've always liked Fiorello's. I got a lot of time to kill.

So many great places...La Caridad at 78th & Broadway for Chinese-Cuban. Big Nick's a couple of blocks south for breakfast. Only in New York, sigh.

I understood the corner of west 8th street & 6th avenue used to be a gay area, or a gay prostitute area. Any truth in that?

Hey Tele '71...My father had a place on W 72 & West End Ave for decades. Greys used to be .50 ...still pretty good last time I had a one a few years back.

Jackson Hole...where Jenifer Aniston used to work.

Used to go down to the Lone Star Cafe & catch Mick Taylor, Jorma or Rick Danko & or various Band members.

Saw Ron Wood & Bo Diddley at the Riz.

Used hit the Pier 84 for a bunch on shows...Santana, Band, Van Mo, Neil, SRV...

Ah....some good ol memories.

I like Two Boots - it's around the corner from where I stay on Houston St...there are now more than one so I don't know if it has gone down hill.

Enjoy the city! smoking smiley


p.s. ANY NYC pizza is better than what we get here in the Memphis.

I'm not a New Yorker so this is guesswork but if we're talking about 53rd and 3rd as in the pic from Come On in this thread then yes. The Ramones told us all about it in "53rd & 3rd" on their first album.

Chris M: There was a diner on one corner and a Korean mini-mart on another when I was there a few years ago. What was your father's place?

I was in New York attempting to walk to some overcrowded hipster-infested burger joint my friend insisted we try. We were pretty much lost and freezing cold, and I happened to look up at the street sign. West 8th Street and 6th Ave! Purely by accident.

I'll try to find the picture.

Gray's Papaya is awesome! I used to go there all the time.

Wasn't looking too good, but I was feeling real well.

Never saw you there, Cindy. I would have said "hi" and bought you a delicious hot dog.
