Not really in our neighborhood but definitely worth the trip to China Town. This place has been around for ages and has the best Chinese food in the city. They serve family style dishes of all the popular Chinese dishes. Most everything on the menu costs around $7 and easily feeds two people. When you arrive you will see there is an upstairs and a downstairs outside entrance. The story is each while named the same is owned and operated by two brothers. Go to the downstairs entrance though the food is better. It may look a little gritty from the outside but you won't be disappointed.

Parks & Nature
Most people from out of town never venture over to see this park but it really is worth it. There is a very nice path that runs right along the East river where you can watch the ships pass by. It's very peaceful and a great place to unwind and relax.

Sightseeing
Many people don't know it but there is a tram that runs across the East river to Roosevelt Island. It operates on the NYC Metrocard and is a great way to get a bird's eye view of Manhattan's East side, the bridges and Queens. While your on Roosevelt island there is a free hop on hop off bus that can take you around the island. Head to the South end to see the FDR Four Freedoms Park where there is a huge marble bust of FDR. Or hang out in one of the parks along the West side of the Northern part of the island to watch ships pass and get a unique view of Manhattan.
