The last thing any subway rider in NYC expects after hearing “Scuse me ladies and gentlemen…” is to get some free coffee. Hopefully we brought a little joy to those hardened New Yorkers.

Kevin’s Pick: Too many people live in New York and don’t anything about it’s incredible history. And a lot of people want to know more but don’t have time to read a long David McCullough book about it. WELL for all of you folks, listen to The Bowery Boys Podcast. The hosts Greg Young and Tom Meyers are funny and know their history. Their episodes are about 45 minutes the perfect length for your morning commute to work.

Margaret’s Pick: Murray’s Bagelsis an authentic bagel shop boasting a variety of freshly baked bagels, cream cheeses and lox toppings. Because they experience a high volume of costumers their bagels are always freshly baked. The lox is fresh and not fishy or over smoked. And for any tourist trying to sink their teeth into New York there is no better way to do it than eating a Bagel with Cream Cheese and Lox.
“We only believe in making bagels the old-fashioned way. In fact, we’re so confident that you’ll enjoy the delectable freshness of a traditionally made bagel, that WE DON’T TOAST. WHy make a fresh bagel that’s crispy on the outside crispy on the inside?” - Murray’s Bagels

Margaret’s Pick: In this city you could eat at a different restaurant every night. This is one of my favorite Italian restaurants and is one of the few restaurants I am continually returning to. It’s delicious authentic Italian served by real Italian waiters with accents, which in my opinion makes the whole experience so enjoyable. Good price, relaxed vibe, my ideal, with simple wooden tables covered in kraft paper.
Reservations taken for parties of 4 or more.
and oh right, CASH ONLY!

Kevin’s Pick: Times Square can a bad rap from New Yorkers but Jimmy’s Corner is right in the heart of Times Square and it’s about as New York as a bar can get. It’s owned by Jimmy Glenn, a boxing trainer who has worked with Muhammed Ali, Larry Holmes, Floyd Mayweather among others. The proof is all over the walls, articles and pictures of Jimmy with some of the greatest boxers of all time. The bar is small, so you have to pack in tight but beers are 3 bucks so I am sure you will be happy to squeeze in there.
Located at 44th between Broadway and 6th ave

Kevin’s Pick: They have food trucks all around the city, which leaves you no excuse to not have one of their wafels. It is without a doubt, hands down my favorite desert of all time. Get the “throwdown wafel” this is what they made to beat Bobby Flay on Throwdown with Bobby Flay. Their staff is always really friendly and they all about their Belgian Wafel history. Oh ya and the Prime Minister of Belgium gave his blessing, so you know they are legit.

Margaret’s Pick: This literal hole in the wall pizza place out in Brooklyn is the perfect off the beaten path place to get off the wall good pizza. The Bloody Mary they serve is so good you might get shocked and drop it! So be careful! They also serve a variety of other delish dishes if you are in the mood for something besides NY’s finest. They have an outdoor courtyard and a heated tent with a bar inside so don’t worry if you have to wait a little. It’ll be worth it.
Take the L train out to the Morgan Avenue stop.

Kevin’s Pick: It’s not a secret that this is the best comedy club in New York but for tourists there are all the annoying comedy dudes in Times Square asking “do you like stand up comedy?” they aren’t bad people, but they are just going to sell you tickets to a comedy club that is not as good as the Cellar. An average night will feature Dave Attell or Colin Quinn. And it’s not unusual at all for Jerry Seinfeld or Chris Rock to drop in. And it’s where Louis CK does his FX show Louie.
Oh ya and last week Dave Chappelle, Chris Rock, Kevin Hart, Marlon Wayans and Bill Bellamy dropped by. Ya it’s legit.
