This is New York’s first major exhibition where the Japanese phenomenon’s of Anime, Manga, and Video Games-three visual art forms that have been influencing generations-will be featured. Expect life-size blow-ups of your favorite characters from these genre’s, courtesy of the architects of Atelier Bow-Wow, along with six classic anime films and much more. At one of my favorite places to get duck, The Peking Duck House, the meat is succulent and the skin crunches like a potato chip. Sometimes you just want to grab a pint without paying a cover charge or playing host to a group of people after work, which is why I like Blackstones Pub & Restaurant. It looks like an old-time saloon and has two pool tables in the back and plenty of other games, while also being big enough to grab traditional American food from the menu. If you’re still hungry, check out the New York Milkshake Company for one of the best $6 shakes of your life.
