Here are a few excerpts:
There are much more imposing structures in New York City than the 22-storey Flatiron Building. The Chrysler building is arguably the most beautiful. The Empire State Building remains the most famous…. But only one building in New York has an entire district named after it," says Rory Lipede, our charismatic guide. "And that's the Flatiron."
Lipede's tour could continue for hours, but we're in a New York rush so we wind up at Eisenberg's Sandwich Shop, whose motto is "Raising New York's cholesterol since 1929", and whose menu reads like a Billy Crystal monologue.
According to Lipede, Eisenberg's is one of the oldest classic Jewish-German diners left in Manhattan. We order its reuben sandwich: pastrami with Swiss cheese, sauerkraut, Russian dressing and pickles, "grilled on rye". Plus an Arnold Palmer (half iced tea, half lemonade).
Pinch me. Am I really in Manhattan, or just dreaming?
