I'll be coming to NYC November 17th through the 21st with my wife and some friends. The Univ. of Memphis basketball team is playing in some tournament at the MSG and I will be traveling up with a journalist who covers the team for the Memphis Commercial Appeal. This will be my 2nd trip to NYC and I want to see some things in Manhattan that I really did not get to see the 1st time around. I am also interested in checking out some our fellow TB member's gigs, if any are going on during that time. I plan to check out all the music stores on 48th, and visit the Museum of Modern Art so far. What suggestions does anyone have for things to do in Greenwich Village, the East Village, and the Lower East Side. I felt that I neglected these areas the last visit. Where are some of the cool shops, restaurants, bars, to check out? Keep in mind that I am less interested in doing some of the most popular tourist stuff, we did plenty of that the last time. I may check out some of the following music while I'm there: Thurs 18th: Nathan East Fri 19th: Richie Havens Sat 20th: Either Little Feat or Steve Kimock Band Any suggestions are welcome, especially from the locals or ex-locals. Thanks.
