October NYC Events + Best NYC Restaurants (10/01)

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.
Stay Safe.
===========================================================

For October we are going to try a different format – “Top 10 Corona Culture” – updated info and video especially suited to these difficult times OR NYC related visual info (Instagram and YouTube) OR all the NYC news you need to start your day.

We hope you will come back often to see what’s cooking here.
Today it’s Best NYCity Restaurants.

With restaurants partially opened or only open for takeout, this info is more useful for that glorious time when we have beaten the virus and life has returned to some form of normal.

It’s not difficult to find a place to eat in Manhattan. Seems like there is at least one restaurant on every block. The New York City health department inspected over 10,000 eating establishments in Manhattan alone last year. And the selection of restaurants includes cuisines from all over the world.

Finding a good place to eat is a bit harder. We could start with New York City’s 72 Michelin-Starred Restaurants, but they are more suitable for those on expense accounts or celebrating a special event. No worries. There are many guides to good eating available, if you know where to look.

Here are a few of my favorite guides to the best restaurants in various neighborhoods:

Lower Manhattan – Did you know?

New York City is a city of neighborhoods and no neighborhood has more spectacular sights, nor more important links to American and NYC history then Lower Manhattan.

New York played a very intriguing role in the story of American independence and was a growing urban center of about 20,000 crowded onto the southern tip of Manhattan Island when the rebellious Colonies declared their independence from England in 1776.

The Battle of Brooklyn (August 1776), was the first major battle after the adoption of the Declaration of Independence and was the largest battle of the entire war. The city was occupied by the British in the wake of a series of American defeats and retreats in the summer and fall of 1776 and the port city became the central base for British operations during the conflict. NYC was also the last place in America that the British left, not until over two years after their ‘final’ defeat.
Let’s take a closer look at these events (c):
