Before the New Year begins, I'm heading up to New York City to sample some culinary delights from as many ethnic neighborhoods as I can. I would like to visit neighborhoods where it's clear that you are surrounded by a different culture (i.e. signs in different languages, cultural things). I only have around 7-8 hours before I need to head back to base for New Year's celebrations.
I've been doing my research, but I would like to get some other insight before I go. I'm arriving in Manhattan by bus around 5am. My "base" will be in Manhattan, but I would love to visit Little Odessa all the way in Brighton Beach. Personally, I would love to stay in Manhattan, but I may make an exception if the neighborhood sounds entriguing enough. I'll be taking lots of photos and tasting lots of food for this project.
Neighborhoods planning to visit: Chinatown, Koreatown, East (Spanish) Harlem, Central Harlem (116th Street/La Petite Senegal), Indian Row maybe Little Odessa.
