I have always heard that everything is better in New York. Bagels are better and water is better and pizza is better and so on and so on.
So, I did have a religious experience with the pastarami at Katz Deli.
Always heard about the pizza being the "best" but that wasn't our experience. It was average.
There were wonderful markets.
Grand Central Station made me want to move there
and passing Minamoto Kitchoan (a Japanese sweet shop) made me gasp
