In Cindy Sherman’s first exhibition since 2004, she examines the distorted ideas of beauty, self-image, and aging with photographs. Using herself as model in all of her previous work, she is a chameleon unrecognizable in much of her photos. Louis Lanza, owner of Josie’s has created a burger joint with organic meat and ingredients that are healthier than any fast food restaurant you can think of without losing the taste. Better Burger offers hot dogs and burgers made of 100% meat. And yes, fries do come with that shake! Named after a Seneca Chief from the 18th century, The Half King is a great Irish bar offering pub food and beautiful wood décor. Grab a pint and hang at a table or sit in the backyard. I hope you like chocolate, because the Chocolate Bar, which looks like a chic café is a great NYC chocolatier run by Alison Nelson and creates retro wrapped chocolate that are as delicious looking as they taste.
