Shopping in NYC

I took my yearly shopping trip to NYC this past weekend and our bus arrived just in time for lunch. We went to Ellen's Stardust Diner (the last time I was there was a few years ago and the Christmas decorations were smoldering and the fire dept was called in - but the waiters and waitresses kept on "singing" - it was a hoot)
The wait staff are all "Broadway wanna-bees" and sing, dance and entertain. I tried the Peruvian empanadas, but I have to admit that I like Puerto Rican pastalillos much better!
The restaurant is on 6th and 51st and is just a fun place to eat!
And Canal Street is a must for any "knock-off" you are looking for - Coach, Prada, LV, Channel, Rolex, etc:
And the Feast of San Gennaro was happening in Little Italy
We found a quiet little corner behind Cha-Cha's for an afternoon happy hour, away from the crowded streets and loud music:
San Gennaro
Street band:
There was lots of shopping, subway rides and good food (stop by tomorrow to read about Magnolia Bakery).

  3. I am a 45 minute train ride from NYC - not far at all. I go in quite a bit for the day job. Have you been to the button and bead stores on 36th? It's like you died and went to button/bead heaven!

  4. What a fabulous trip. I haven't been in New York in more than 30 years. My friend from Fort Wayne and I are talking about a trip there and to Chicago next spring.

    This diner reminds me of Johnny Rockets.

    Did you get any great bargains? La
