Pre Covid-19 we searched the internet everyday looking for the very best of What’s Happening, primarily on Manhattan’s WestSide, so that you didn’t have to.
We made it as easy as 1-2-3.
Covid-19 has required some changes for the time being.
For the month of July we are going to try a different format – on some days we will go visual and offer a selection of the very best NYCity Instagram photos or YouTube videos. Some days you will find “the Nifty Nine”, all the NYC news you need to start your day, or the Top Online Travel Forums with NYC info. On other days we will offer “Corona Culture,” updated info and video especially suited to these difficult times. We hope you will come back often to see what’s cooking here.
Today it’s The Nifty Nine NYC News sources.
All the NYCity News You Need to Start Your Day
We hope you enjoy this change of pace, then please return here August 1, and every day for our daily, hot off the presses event guide with “Only the Best” NYCity event info.
Lower Manhattan – Did you know?
There are some fine spots to grab a meal in Lower Manhattan.
You could try Kaffe 1668
275 Greenwich St., 212-693-3750, TriBeCa, Manhattan
“Hard-core coffee, tea and cold-pressed juice drinkers: you know who you are. The not so easy to please should head right over to this serious-minded café in TriBeCa, a few short blocks north of One World Trade Center. Kaffe 1668 does not refer to its address but rather to the year New York City’s Dutch founders allegedly introduced coffee as a breakfast beverage (replacing beer). Single-origin, direct-trade beans are ground fresh for each espresso and served in pretty, porcelain Iittala cups from Finland (paper cups are available for those on the run). Heavy wood tables, free WiFi, enchanting toy sheep and extra seating downstairs for brainstorming sessions and secluded reading escapes make the place enticing for all kinds of reasons. Fresh-baked goods, both sweet and savory, are available to grab for a snack.”
