go to Veniero's bakery. Mmmmm
Quote:

Veniero's Pasticceria & Caffé is an Italian bakery that was established in 1894 and is located at 342 East 11th Street, between 1st and 2nd Avenue, in the East Village neighborhood of Manhattan, New York City. Founded by Antonio Veniero of Sorrento,[1] the bakery was opened as a pool emporium and caffé where Veniero served his baked products to customers. The demand for his pastries and cakes won him awards in Rome, Bologna and the New York World's Fair. The bakery has been continuously owned and operated by the Veniero family since its founding.[2] The bakery is still owned and operated by the Veniero family, with a notable change over the years being the addition in 1984 of an adjoining warm enclave, with a ceiling of stained-glass panels and the original pressed tin.[3] Frank Zerilli changed the oven from coal to gas by the 1980s as well,[4] and more recently Veniero's began selling carb-free cheesecakes and sugar-free cookies.[5]

Veniero's is famous for its traditional and regional Italian confections, including handmade Italian butter cookies, biscotti, cannoli, sfogliatelle, tiramisù, and its New York staple cheesecake.[6] [7]

Veniero's was featured in the first New York City episode of Food Network's Road Tasted[8] and has been featured on many other shows, including ABC's Good Morning America[9] and Live with Regis and Kelly, and Steve Schirripa's Hungry on the cable channel Mag Rack. The bakery has also been the location for scenes on NBC's Law & Order. It was also featured on HBO's Curb Your Enthusiasm season 8, episode 76, in a comedic plot where the main character uses the bakery's hard crust Italian bread as an improvised weapon.

In 2010, Veniero's was named the winner for the Best Desserts in New York City by AOL's City's Best website.[10] Furthermore, some food tour companies visit Veniero's as part of their programs.[11]

If you're into some great food check out Chelsea Market (10th and 23rd I believe). You can also get on the High Line there and get an interesting perspective of the west side.

Drink in Brooklyn and have some dollars by doing so.

Be sure to go to Katz Deli if you're interested in overpriced, overrated, fatty sandwiches.

Staten Island Ferry is free and a nice sight-seeing trip. Walking across the Brooklyn Bridge and checking out that borough is cool. Astoria in Queens is a huge mixture of cultures and always has something going on. I don't know how old you are but if you're over 21 there are some great rooftop bars in Manhattan.

Yes and of course

- Take a walk through Central Park.. get yourself a horse ride if you have some change
-Be Bedazzled at the Victoria's Secret/NBA/Mac store on 5th Avenue
- During Day it's pretty fun to see all the street entertainment, bootlegged purses, name.. they'll breakdance, flip and do other stuff

Honsetly, it depends on the quality of your company. By seleting 5-7 really solid fellows and galpals you can either make it or break it.

christ i think ive been there at least a hundo times.. one hundred minutes away
