A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Loretta Lynn carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

As a kid, I once went with my dad to his office. His cubicle was completely undecorated, except for three small photos: me, my mom, and Thelonious Monk. Needless to say, this sounds like my childhood.

Trouble, you have no idea of how nice it is to hear this. I can't thank you enough. We are actually organizing the trip (what to do, what to see, where to buy records…). If we take your kind offer, know that I want to bring you wine, or cheese… or whatever french stuff you'd like. And that in exchange, you are very welcome to come crash at our place !

I love this Thelonious Monk !

I like Mott St., but Mott St. in *July*?! Yeah, nothing compares to that -- because nothing else is quite so smelly! Ha ha. (And crammed with tourists -- it seems to be in all the tourist guidebooks, like the Brooklyn Bridge.)

Welcome, @Pierre! If there are particular cuisines you really like, let me know and I'll point you towards the right hole-in-the-wall restaurants.

Peace all. @Pierre-If I remember right there are about ten or twelve Indian restaurants in a row on 6th street near 3rd ave in Manhattan
Avatar Thu. 10/12/17 11:27am Wild Neil:

Everything from cheap to expensive and everything in between. I think Sonar Gayon was cheap but good, but that was 1993 or so.

Trouble, thx for playing the piece from the Sunrise score--that is a truly classic film. Very curious to hear what Morricone Youth came up with for it.

our spanish exchange student wanted 'american' food, so we took him to pies N thighs in brooklyn for fried chiccken and dinosaur BBQ: loved it! but of course, since he he is a 16 boy...

@ Ike and Wild Neil : that's awesome, thanks guys ! I've grown with the picture of diners… so I don't know where i'll be eating, but I know i'll want to try diner food, hear diner talk… this is very american/exotic to me. Big refill of coffees, fries, pancakes : I love it
Avatar Thu. 10/12/17 11:32am pierre:

Then I've hear that on the east coast there is amazing sea food, so I think i'd love to try this as well
Avatar Thu. 10/12/17 11:32am pierre:

and proper mexican food as well, as in europe we don't have much places with good american food
Avatar    Thu. 10/12/17 11:33am BronwynB:

pierre, if you want a classic american diner i recommend chelsea square diner at 23rd & 9th
Avatar Thu. 10/12/17 11:34am pierre:

sorry, a bit on a talking spree here, but I saw Mdou Moctar this summer and I loved it. the guy is charismatic !

Super cool, Thanks a lot BronwynB :)

trouble is there still the flamingo diner in jersey city? I think i heard it changed ownership...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/12/17 11:34am ɨkɛ:

@WN, back in the day, there was a ridiculous conspiracy theory that all of those Indian restaurants were secretly connected to one single hidden mega-kitchen, ha! Not true, of course. That row has diversified a bit & it's not as ridiculously cheap as it used to be. And there's probably better Indian food on 27th & Lex in "Curry Hill" now, or Jersey City.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/12/17 11:34am Trouble:

also fed my spanish youngster tacos from a street cart near me, and that was his first taco. so cute
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/12/17 11:35am steveo:

and I want to know what happens with 16-year-old boys in Brooklyn! Did you just mean that he ate $600 worth of chicken and dessserts?
Avatar Thu. 10/12/17 11:35am The Oscar:

@Pierre Did you see "Rain the Color of Blue with a Little Red in It?" Really damn charming, and Moctar is great in it.
Avatar Thu. 10/12/17 11:35am Wild Neil:

@Pierre-DINERS are ALL OVER New Jersey. Maybe TickTock diner? I think my sister took me there once, it was ok. I think there is one in Clifton, NJ too. www.ticktockdinerny.com OH! If they have deep fried pierogi, try that, they are pretty fucking amazing. They were in this other diner in Allentown, PA anyway.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/12/17 11:36am annie:

i love that the focus of travelling always seems to be the food...
Avatar Thu. 10/12/17 11:37am Wild Neil:

@Pierre-I LOVE diners, but make sure it is run by Greeks or Poles to be really really really good. I was in a Russian run diner once and it was dirty, but that was in Tannersville, PA so avoid that one.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/12/17 11:37am bobdoesthings:

I just became curious as to what dishes are defined as "american food" - www.cnn.com...
Avatar Thu. 10/12/17 11:38am Wild Neil:

Why Poles? Because Poles taught the French how to cook according to somebody in Poland who told me that.
American foods-Cheeseburger and French Fries with a milkshake?
Avatar Thu. 10/12/17 11:38am pierre:

@The Oscar : yes, yes I did, in a movie festival and I loved it. Thanks for bringing it up.

@Wild Neil : Thansk a lot for the tip, I will check it up.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/12/17 11:38am bobdoesthings:

a lot of deep fried things and meats.. but some other things I hadn't considered like grits and clam chowder..
Avatar Thu. 10/12/17 11:38am glenn:

well, we all gotta eat. not everybody cares about the mona lisa or old buildings.

@steveo, still here, but hardly a diner, i would say...

Never found pierogi as good as my grandmother's were, but deep fried sounds intriguing.

@Wild Neil : i've heard that this is a very trendy and cool place. well I think we'll try to go and walk there for sure… There is so many thing to see and visit. What about Harlem ? I've dreamed of Harlem since I am a kid.

hmm, that's too bad. I have great memories of the flamingo in the late 90s

I don't believe the Tick Tock Diner of NY is related to the NJ one, @WN! Also, did you know about the attempted Tick Tock torture/murder?! State police foiled an evil Tick Tock plot a few years ago!
www.nj.com...
Avatar Thu. 10/12/17 11:43am Wild Neil:

@Pierre-I would NOT go to Harlem alone at night in 1992. Maybe now its like the Greenwich Village for all I know. If you want to see slums and crack dealers maybe take a cab through the South Bronx ? Still, ask a local here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/12/17 11:43am Trouble:

@steveo pies n thighs is not super pricey, it's the real deal. we wandered down by the water while we waited, over by where the old domino sugar factory was, DIY park there now until a giant high rise takes over
Avatar Thu. 10/12/17 11:44am Wild Neil:

Go to the Apollo Theatre maybe? Or a jazz club? I am clueless.
Avatar Thu. 10/12/17 11:47am pierre:

@ annie and Wild Neil : yeah, I imagine it has changed. And well, I wouldn't want to see dealers and slums, but some district that encapsulated what I imagine would be the life of the urban life of New-York. But then again, it's gonna be my first time in the USA, and I'm imagining all of this with the mind of a french guy engorged into american cinema and music :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/12/17 11:47am steveo:

i want to go!
Avatar Thu. 10/12/17 11:48am pierre:

@ Wild Neil : a jazz club, yes, ThAT would be nice if not too expensive

Avatar Thu. 10/12/17 11:55am Wild Neil:

@Pierre-In general (and there are exceptions) listed expensive to less expensive
1. Manhattan
2. Hoboken NJ and Brooklyn and Queens and Jersey City
3. A little further out in NJ-Morristown
4. Hackensack NJ-short bus ride out of NYC

Avatar Thu. 10/12/17 11:58am Wild Neil:

And CENTRAL PARK is free! oh and The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the NATURAL HISTORY museum-they are actually free or $0.01 because the donation is "suggested". They HAVE to explain that to you if you ask I think. At least in 1992 they did. You look cheap, but hey if you can you can.
