    St Patrick's Cathedral

    Izakaya Kenka

    Man I dont even know where to start with this place. Well let’s start with $1.50 drafts of Kirni and Sapporo. Kenka is a Japanese Izakaya (kinda like a Japanese bar that serves good inexpensive food and drinks) located in New York's East Village. I was first introduced to Kenka about 5 years go by fellow Lomographers visiting from Japan, and have been an avid visitor ever since.

    Greek Easter at Uncle Paul’s

    Every since I can remember my family would always get together at my uncles house in Lindenhurst, NY. Perorations start a week or so in advanced. Uncle Paul orders the lamb and goat. Grandma starts preparing all the side dishes and colours the Easer Eggs. Finally on Easter Sunday Uncle Paul gets up nice and early to prepare the lamb and goat. Then he lights the BBQ.

  • Montauk

    written by xbalboax on 2008-04-27 #places

    If you plan on visiting New York during the summer and want to do try something different, then I recommend Montauk. Montauk is located at the very end of Long Island. A good 4-hour train ride from good old Manhattan, but well worth it. A must stop for any beach loving lomographer.
