Featuring the most concentrated amount of great photography in one area, the NY Photo Festivalâ€™s goal is to showcase the future of photography, and this year will have curators from all over the world with exhibits, awards, presentations, and master classes with some of the biggest photographers in the world. RICE not surprisingly offers a pretty intense variety of rice, from brown to Bhutanese red. Most of the rice based dishes come in large and small sizes. Right below RICE is Low Bar, an extremely convenient place to grab a drink and catch some great DJs spin in a lounge environment. Right off the water, with a view of the South Street Seaport and the Brooklyn Bridge so close you can touch it, the only thing that could make this view better is ice cream. Youâ€™ll usually find a long line for Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory, but the sweet flavors are worth it!
