    hello all. I will be in new york for my first time come october and am dying to eat like a local. (i know its not canada, but what the hey) i know there are about a billion great places to eat out there but i will only have a few days to really hit the town(i am in a wedding and it will occupy much of my time). i am staying in queens arround nassau, but i will definitely make it into the city also (hopefully a couple of times). i will be on a modest budget, but i do plan on splurging for the right place. i would love any suggestions ranging from corner delis to tru dining, i just want to avoid the usual touristy places, (i guess rocco's mamma won't be rolling me any meatballs). bring it on...............................

    you are so awesome suzanne! thank you so much, and thank god my hotel has a gym! it will be such a hard time deciding where to go now,, but iv'e had worse problems before. i am also curious where the best street markets are, i spend a deal of time in new orleans and love the open market atmosphere (not just food but ethnic goods,jewelery,gypsey wares and the like). i can't wait to see your city!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    One correction: EVERYBODY here is awesome! :D

    For outdoor markets in Manhattan selling "stuff" (as opposed to the Greenmarkets selling food): there's a big flea market on the weekends on 6th Avenue (what the rest of the world calls Avenue of the Americas ;) ) a little bit above 23rd Street, and a smaller one on 38th or 39th, west of the Port Authority Bus Terminal.

    BUT: it could be a lot more interesting to take the #7 train to Jackson Heights in Queens and just walk along Roosevelt Avenue, under the elevated tracks. You'll get Indian, Bangla, all kinds of South and Central American -- a huge mix of different cultures. Or go up to Arthur Avenue in the Bronx, for a REAL "Little Italy." Or downtown Jamaica (also in Queens).
