Well weren't we the greedy ones!?!
Five hours flew by, we were apparently training our stomachs to expect food every 20mins.. Don't worry this is not an all you can eat extravaganza. There are plenty places you can bust a gut in NYC but this is tour is carefully crafted to let you see places you would never even get to and taste foods you might have heard of but have never tried.
Sweetness is the pet name of Dave's cherished "Checker Marathon".. Constantly throughout the afternoon locals yell across the street to him "Is it a 57?" More fool them! It's obviously an '82 Checker, it looks like a '61 cos they started making them back then, but Sweetness was the last off the production line.. Dave put them straight with great pleasure and a wave, as we took off to our next port of call..
We had loosely covered midtown and lower manhattan and visited Williamsburg and Brooklyn before we hooked up with Dave, so we were keen to head North and see a bit of Harlem and "Da Bronx".. "City Island" was a real unexpected bonus , especially after 5 days in the City itself! ;)
We ate Pan Fried Chicken, Jerk Shrimp, Garlic Knot's, Broccoli Rabe , a "Christina", Fried Shrimp, Deep Fried Calzone, Sausage Slice, Italian Ice, Cannoli's, Fresh Salted Mozzarella. The food was great, but it was about much more than that!
