New York Minute

Yo, if you haven’t seen this dope site: NYC Corners, well, get going.


p.s. My brother, sister and I spent many hours in this greasy spoon with our old man when we were kids.

I live a block away from the greasy spoon of your past. I keep willing it to be good, but is just ain't. Sigh! And now it's even pricey.

Pricey? C'mon. It was never good but it was cheap which is why we went. And we always predicted if they'd put the burger on the top bun or the bottom one--they always put it on the wrong one.

Hey cool, they have a picture of my office - the button building.

Have you been there lately? A wrap was like $16.95 and I don't even like wraps. The burger was rubberiffic.

[4] I like it better than the other neighborhood breakfast/diner options, Big John's and Pier 72. Can't speak to anything but the breakfast menu though.

One more thing - the West Side Restaurant appears in the movie Little Manhattan. The movie was largely shot in that area. It's a pretty good movie for kids (5-12 or so).
