Daily NYC

If you venture out in New York City today, chances are good you might run into a witch, ghoulish zombie and even a guy wearing a frilly pink tutu.

There are several people and places synonymous with Harlem. Langston Hughes? Of course. The Apollo Theater? You name it.

Located among the hubbub of Manhattan’s Theater District, Daniela Trattoria is a refreshingly calm escape from the throngs of tourists on Eighth Avenue.

Although Oktoberfest technically ended a few weeks ago, you can still celebrate fall by grabbing a pint and some hearty fare at several watering holes throughout the city.

When I think of neighborhood watering holes—the type “where everybody knows your name”—what normally comes to mind is a dark space with a long wooden bar, complete with a curmudgeonly, yet lovable, bartender and every type of sports memorabilia hanging from the walls.

My mom is a librarian, so I’ve been a complete bookworm since I learned to read. One of my favorite places to find additions to my shelves is The Strand.

I went to college in Lower Manhattan so by the time I graduated, I had grown bored with most of the restaurants in that area. Cowgirl Seahorse, located near the South Street Seaport, is one of few exceptions.

Once upon a time, I worked for a magazine dedicated to Halloween. While most people focus on Halloween for a few weeks in October, four months of my life—specifically August to December—were spent analyzing the spooky holiday.

Now through October 27, the San Francisco Ballet performs at New York City’s Lincoln Center.

What’s your favorite gallery in the city?
