Andy Warhol's factory used to be here when the park was filled with junkies and May's department store was on 14th. Now it basically sucks with a bunch of yuppies buying rotten applesauce or some such crap.

    I HEART STRANDS! My favorite spot is the top floor where they hold vintage books. I got some books from the early 1900s there.

    It is like Pinterest decor gone wild here!!! So many one of a kind treasures, whether it is a turquoise chandelier, a brass wishing well, stone plated napkin holders, a tyedyed silk pillow made in Thailand. I can not wait to have enough money to shop at ABC!

    Union Square used to be a site of protests and political ferment, and is today more of tiny oasis for New Yorkers and NYU students. There's often some break dancing on the south end, and a great farmers' market three or four times a week on the north end. A relaxed square in which to pull up a bench, grab ...

    Another small music venue that I am a fan of. I have seen many great artists here. Such as Stephen Marley, Ryan Leslie, ZZ Ward, and most recently Beats Antique. Sound system is great. Drinks are reasonable and I like how there is an area you can stand upstairs even if you arent VIP.

    Bowlmor's on the pricey side for bowling & drinks, but it's in Union Square... what can you expect?! It's a great time though & I love the variety of activities, from bowling to mini golf. During bowling we ordered beer & wings, and I heard the wings were terrible - just a warning!

    *GEEKSPLOSION!* (Batman action figures!) *NERDGASM!* (Little Nemo in Slumberland!) *DORKAPALOOZA!* (A giant bust of Darth Vader! Classy!) *ACCIO NERD REFERENCE!* (That last one was kind of ironic...) I have never in my life been to a comics shop as cool and varied as this one. They had things on sale that I didn't even know existed, and some that I ...

    As movie theaters go in NY, this is one of the better ones. The restrooms are usually very clean, theater floors usually aren't sticky and seats are comfortable. Of course, concession prices are way too high.

    I met a friend here at this charming Greenwich Village/ Union Square spot last week for a late dinner and a glass of wine. Corkbuzz is mainly filled with loyal locals who live within a 10 block radius. Staffed with a master sommelier, the waiters were exceptionally well informed. The owner is actually the world's youngest female master sommelier (from ...

I recently visited the Strasberg Theatre to watch a play and I have to say that from what I have seen, the actors and actress that attend this institute are GOOD! The production was well written and the actors did ...

    The High Line is a beautiful and unusual way to see NYC. It once was a New York Subway line that has been turned into a park and walking area complete with art installations and gardens. It's nice to see parts of the city from above the sidewalk too!
