i usually just stay at one of a few places in chinatown on or around the bowery. really cheap and pretty clean. also very close to soho and cheap chinese food.

pm me if you want specifics, but i usually just wander down the street and go into one of the two or 3 places between canal and grand

best cheap lunch:

pampano taqueria, an outpost of their far more expensive restaurant

some of the best tacos in ny, homegrown bklyn places not withstanding.

3 tacos

a torta or a burrito, rice and beans, and the agua fresca whatever it happens to be that day, for $8.95

in the basement of the crystal pavillion, 3rd ave between 50 & 51st.

yeah, my old job was literally across the street from that building (b/t 49 and 50, close enough though). i tried not to go too often b/c its not the healthiest lunch, but that place is tasty! pescado tacos were my fac.

^^ yeah dude. usually $1 slice joints are terrible by nyc standards. their only saving grace is a high turnover rate due to the price, so everything is fresh. regardless, it's prob better than what you're getting in florida.

ps - i can't fuck w/ pizza prices any more. a plain slice is $2.50 across the street from my apt. $2.50!!! you used to be able to get a slice and a soda for that price 6 months ago. or one of those crazy slices w/ like ziti on top.

Geez, 2.50? crazy.
I remember when a good slice used to be 1.25, and then when the shop raised it to 1.50 it seemed insane. This being like, 5 or so years ago.

Lee repro jeans? Obviously BiG is great for all the Japanese denim such as Warehouse and Samurai, but I was hoping to check out some Lee repros when I'm there in August.

Also, any places for good, selvage, raw denim in the $140 range?

thx

APC for the more affordable raw selvage denim. I think BIG has some John Bull's that are in the $160 range.

I'm planning to go to NYC in either august or summer...my debate between the two dates only hinges on two basic things:

1. is weather in sept noticeably better than august? (i've been told the humidity is still in full effect in august)

2. which month would be better to visit so that I can be first in line (or near it) to cop fall goods?

1. yes, august (esp early on) is probably the hottest time of the year
2. depends on what kind of stuff you're looking for. barneys is already getting in f/w collections. also note during august a lot of people leave the city during weekends so there's less competition shopping wise.
