    If you’re a New York City local, please share your expertise by suggesting nearby restaurants, bars, or things to see or do. Provide as much information as you can: Distance from the convention venue, price range, URL, and what you like about a place are particularly useful.

    As an NYC local, I’d like to recommend the following around the convention area (if you’re looking for recommendations beyond a mile radius of the convention, particularly in Brooklyn, send me a message here @terrainsvagues):

    • BAR: Valhalla NYC, for a really good selection of craft beers. It’s a 10-minute walk west from the Sheraton along 53rd St.
    • BOOKSTORE: Albertine, a French-language bookstore and event space at 972 5th Avenue (at 79th Street). About a half-hour walk (through Central Park!) from the Sheraton.
    • YOGA: Sonic Yoga, 944 Eight Ave (between 55th and 56th Streets). Vinyasa focused, with classes for all levels. About five minutes from the Sheraton.
    • FLEA MARKET: Hell’s Kitchen Flea Market, 39th St &  9th Ave. (1 mile from the Sheraton). Sat & Sun 9am–5pm.
    • BAR/TAPAS: Kilo, 857 9th Avenue (between 55th and 56th Streets). Great cocktails and tapas. A 10-minute walk from the Sheraton.
    • BRUNCH: Print, 653 11th Ave, New York City, NY (at 48th Street). Seasonable, sustainable, delicious brunch fare. Good for vegetarians.  About a mile from the Sheraton. 
    • RESTAURANT: Momosan Ramen & Sake at 39th Street and Lexington. If you’re looking for something fancy with a view, I’ve heard Robert, at 2 Columbus Circle at the top of the Museum of Arts and Design, fits the bill.
    • CHEAPER EATS: Toto Ramen, 366 52nd Street. $10-$15/bowl.
