Want something cold before an event at MSG? Want something decent to snack on? Want to drink in a place with a great owner and staff (Nell, this means you). Then go to the Cafe 31. Pull up a stool and stay a while.

We went there before the hockey game at MSG- located right across the street- wasn't busy- walked right in and sat down. Good service and good food.

Found this place on a recommendation from a parking lot attendant near Penn Station. outside looks like a typical hole-in-the-wall bar on a side street in Manhattan, but inside is a very friendly and accommodating environment. As an appetizer, we shared an order of fried...More

Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful
brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most
popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s
jewels when it comes to neighborhood life. The
contemporary art scene is an integral part of the
neighborhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost
every night of the week and countless exhibits to
explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York
