Hi all:
older c.s. member will be in the city for a few days:
tell me where to go or join me.
as a former new yorker i know the obvious spots. but looking for any favorite cafe, ethnic restaurant, bar, farmer's market etc, that you would like to pass along. also if anyone would want to practice a little english for spanish can do that as well. getting a bike and riding in central park is also on my list. i don't know if this is the best place to post but with the changes c.s. has made i'm just not sure. i'm staying near high line park.
thanks, rob
ps, feel free to write to my inbox.

Welcome! The new CitiBike program has made it really easy to rent a bike and zip around the city. Besides Central Park I also really like biking along the Hudson River/West Side Highway. It goes up the entire west side of Manhattan. I always love to wander Koreatown on 32nd Street for great Korean eats (it's only about a block long but there are restaurants and karaoke bars on multiple levels so look up!). For great old school Italian-American food check out Parm on Mulberry Street. And of course around the Highline it's fun to wander through all the galleries.

Thanks Katherine:
I want to get a bike maybe Sunday and ride up the west side and maybe thru central park as well. I'm a biker and am also a card carrying member of Madison's "B Cycle Program sponsored by Trek.
But, a great place to rent a bike and participate in the every sunday biking event called "eco bici" is mexico city. They shut down many main streets from 8 am. until 2p.m. and the bikers, zumba dancers, roller bladers, and every other non motorized vehicle imaginable take over and the fiesta begins,
but i digress: thanks for the tips and i will check out some of the other tips as well. I'd love to eat in someone's home: that sounds like fun.
paz,
rob
