The Famous "Oyster Bar"

If you are looking for a place with some famous Big Apple history, rustic ambiance and reasonable seafood prices this is definitely one to add to a day tour of NYC. Established in 1959 and run by the same family since day one when its doors opened. Here you will find yourself hanging with the locals in true NYC fashion.

The selection of oysters here is impressive. If you like surf and turf they have it! A lobster dinner promo was $28.95 in March during the weekend of the New York Times Travel Show.

I spotted this restaurant relic in its own right on my way back from MOMA about 10 minutes away. If you want a great museum to check out on a city trek be sure to stop here. The Google Art Project is featured on their website where you can create a virtual album of your own favorites from museums around the world.

Happy travels!
