The Halal cart on 53rd and 6. Very classy!

I had dinner with my family for Mom's birthday at McCormick and Schmick (52nd and 6th) a couple of years ago. Nice place if you like seafood. Otherwise, there are a lot more options if you walk over to 9th.

Nothing good and cheap near the Rock, but these are good and close:

Le Bernardin
The Modern
Brasserie Ruhlmann

There's also some good chocolate shops in Rockefeller Center Plaza
Jacques Torres Chocolate (Downstairs in the concourse)
and
La Maison du Chocolat

boardwayron helped me installing the new cover and foam. I say we did a great job. My butt loves the new seat.

Big Thanks to Ron!

Anyone Missing A White Full-Faced Helmet

There is one on a stake in the middle of the West Side Highway at Canal Street. Was in my cage so didn't see the brand or anything.

That is a memorial for a fallen motorcycle rider named Ronen Katz.

A helmet is the last thing you want to go cheap on.

actually, from a safety standpoint, full face DOT approved is plenty good enough. Doesn't have to be expensive. Beyond that, you're paying for branding, fluffery, comfort, and nonsense.
