Laura Pedersen tells you where the locals like to hang out. In - and out of - town
Tucked away in Greenwich village, No one seems to know about this art and history-filled gem so it’s almost always empty of tourists.
Terrific for long walks and even a picnic. Much quieter than a park! Watch out for marauding geese.
This place has become something of an institution on the Lower East Side. Terrific food served up by a zany cast of characters. What more could you ask for?
Undiscovered except by locals in-the-know, don’t let the outside fool you. Amazing Asian fusion cuisine. One sister is cranky, one is nice, just like in a sitcom.
Great place to relax while the alligators keep mostly to themselves.
