Eliot and I will soon be visiting my parents in New Jersey; Maggie is heading south to visit a brand-new nephew. They live across the river from New York City and I’m planning on spending a bit of time exploring. Where should we go? And maybe more importantly, where should we eat? I’ve done some of the touristy things in NYC so I’m more interested in stuff that’s off the beaten path. I have friends in the Bronx and Harlem who I’ll visit, so any suggestions in those neighborhoods (or is it boroughs?) would be great.
