I'm studying the MFA in New York city, and ready to discover this Big Apple!

If you have some recommendation such as art activity, comic store, art material store, or just the good tasting food, welcome to inform me!

Also welcome just chatting with me, because I really need to improve my English lol.

This is my facebook, perhaps someday you will meet me in the street.

You should just walk around. Thats the best thing to do especially if you want to get comfortable with the area you're in. Also, when you walk around you find things...when you find things you can make friends haha.
New York is just so fun to walk around without caring where you are going. Of course you should know how to get get a taxi to go home or not to go too far alone, but its still good to just walk around without a motive.
I hope you have fun in New York!

It's hard to make friends because I'm a little bit ashed xD. But I will try it.

Before my school courses begin, I had visited several famous places in NY, such as the status of Liberty, high line, central park and Brooklyn bridge, etc, and I'm really enjoying them!

And I had bought the ticket of Comic-Con, if next year I also could join it, that will be amazing!

Im...not good at making friends either haha.


Thats great! I went to some of those places when I was living in New Jersey. They are pretty awesome. Oh how I miss it! But it's good to hear that your having fun!

Aw man I wish I could go to Comi-Con! They are having Anime-Con here in Monterey though so im hoping I could go there. Have you ever been to it?

No, This will be my first time going to Comic-con. I knew this exhibition but never put more attention on it, therefore if my friend not mentioned the information about it, perhaps I would not buy the ticket on time lol.

The area around Union Square-14th street is cool. It has a small but nice park in the center. Around it is a Barns and Noble for any book you want, a best buy for your tech needs, a AMC theater for the latest movies, and just past that is Forbidden Planet for comics, manga, and other geeky things. The NYC Comi-con is in October if that's something your interested in.

I love Forbidden Planet and Barns and Noble. Especially Barns and Noble, In this book store, here have various books relative with art, and almost books could be read before I buy it. It's really good place to spend all afternoon.

If you want to go to a really good art material store, you can go to Pearl Paint in Canal Street aka Chinatown. It's pretty big and cater a lot for traditional artists and the like and since you're a student, you can get a 10% discount on anything!

And yeah, there's a Kinokuniya on 6 Ave between 40th and 41st, across the street from Bryant Park (best way to get there is by42nd Street-Bryant Park station on the F, M, B, and D trains.

If you want some good places for great good, the Village aka Greenwich Village is great neighborhood to get some cheap eats since it also caters to the New York University crowd too. If you want to spend a little more, Midtown Manhattan are filled with restaurants that doesn't break the bank. Chinatown have amazing eateries there as well. And if you don't mind the ride to Flushing, the Chinatown there have great cheap eats (NYC actually have three Chinatowns in Manhattan [Canal Street], Brooklyn [Sunset Park] and Queens [Flushing], but when we say Chinatown, we usually mean the one in Canal Street in Manhattan). I usually go to Flushing Mall for the takoyaki and taiyaki places they have there.

My favorite places are Brother Jimmy's Burger Shack on East 31st Street between 7th and 8th Aves, Sapporo on 49th Street and 7th Ave.

Thank your information!

I had visited kinokuniya today, it is really good place to find a Japanese manga! And there also had book-off, although its amount of manga not very plenty, the prices are really cheap!

I lived in Rego park, therefore go to Flushing is more convenient for my. In fact, my cellphone was bought at here. I love this place, not only the populous atmosphere, but also familiar foods! I will go here to find takoyaki and taiyaki you mentioned xDD

Brother Jimmy's Burger Shack seems delicious, someday I will find it after the class!

HOHOHO~
I know a ton of things you can do XD
If you like Manga, you can go to Kinokunya, which I believe is in Midtown by Bryant Park
You can also go to Forbidden Planet, which has both manga, and other comics XD

If you are looking for novels and other types of books, The Strand is a cool bookstore

For art supplies, I think there may be a Pear Paint somewhere (I'm not sure though, since I do most of my art supply shopping at Blick's, which is out on the Island)
Also, there may be a lot of shops in the fashion district (although they may be more fabric/sewing materials)
I know there's also a small art supply store on the Fashion Institute of Technology's (FIT) campus (which should be right around Penn Station)
And I'm sure you can find a lot of cool little shops in the East Village~

As far as food goes, you can basically go everywhere and expect good food XD
T-Kettle, (in the East Village, near St. Marks place) has really good bubble tea and beverages
ahh, there are other places too, but I'm sorry I can't really think of them right now XD;

And for activities, just walking around is good!
You can also go to the parks, like Central, Bryant, and GW Square for some nice scenery and such
There are also some nice Karaoke places, like Karaoke Duet, which has two locations!~

If I can remember more interesting things, I'll try to keep in touch! XD

Good luck~

I had visited kinokuniya and book off, it is exciting that I could find the original Japanese in NY! Forbidden Planet I also visited, I was impressing about the numerous comics on the wall and cabinet.

My assignments this semester usually used the traditional materials, I will check those places you mentioned!

Yes, in New York,the streets seem every restaurants are delicious, but it is hard to figure out the Tax xD. If I go to restaurant by myself is little lonely, I have to grab my classmate or someone accompany with me.

I love karaoke, especially Japanese songs, I had visited Japas 55 once, I was happy could sung the animation's songs at here ww.

Thank your information!
