New York So Far

Having a great time! I’d forgotten how much I loved walking through Times Square with all the lights and people. (I’m sure, by the end of my week, I’ll be over it.)

My thanks to Vito at Jim Hanley’s Universe for showing me around the store and talking the finer points of comic retailing with me. And thanks to Heidi for introducing me to Korean barbecue! Yum!

Oh, and I almost forgot to mention my “celebrity sighting”. I walked into JHU and almost bumped into Alex Robinson (whose graphic novel Tricked I really enjoyed) and Mike Dawson (whose graphic novel Freddie and Me I’m looking forward to reading when it’s published next year).

    My pleasure, Johanna. I’m happy we could help you cross some books off of your wish list and I’m glad you saw that I’m not such a meanie in real life ;)

    Thanks again for stopping in!

    Do you remember which Korean restaurant you ate at? I went to Dae Dong for lunch today and usually go to Kum Gang San (with the big waterfall and the piano on a rock), which is always good. Mandoo Bar is pretty tasty as well if you like hand made dumplings.

    If you make it to Chinatown before the end of your trip, check out Eastern Noodles at 28th Forsyth Street for amazing noodles, hand-pulled before your very eyes, Dumpling House on Eldridge Street for more hand made dumplings and New Green Bo for Shanghai soup dumplings. As you can see, I’m a big fan of dumplings.

    If you or anyone you know will be in NYC for Mocca in June, that Sunday there’ll be a street fair called Egg Rolls and Egg Creams on Eldridge Street, sponsored by the Eldridge Street Synagogue, where I volunteer. Stop by for an egg cream, some Kosher egg rolls and tour of a beautiful 119 year old synagogue given by yours truly.

    I’m sorry, I don’t. It was on 32nd street is all I recall. I want you to give me a dumpling tour next time I’m here!

    I am hoping to get back for MOCCA, so I’ll try to keep that in mind.

    Woo Ri Jip? I used to eat there all the time when I worked at Hanley’s.

    Let me know next time you’re in town and have time for a dumpling tour. I’m all about food tours!
