For the last seven years, a number of the city’s poetry-reading series and their affiliated collectives have taken over Governors Island for a day, creating a stage for the many voices of NYC, both celebrated and underground. This year, the crew of the Poetry Society of New York does it again, presenting readings from more than 200 poets and 50 organizations.
This Upper East Side diner has all the classics covered: omelettes, sandwiches, waffles, burgers and so much more. Open until midnight every night, Trend Diner offers locals an easy way to satisfy almost any comfort food craving. For breakfast, choose from more than 15 different omelettes ($8.95–$12.25), Monte Cristo french toast ($12.95) and waffles with every topping imaginable ($8.75–$13.50).
