Last time, we explored the Chelsea area; this time, let's visit the Upper West Side!
Are you a Downton Abbey fan? You're in luck! Check out the Downton Abbey: The Exhibition. Located on 218 W 57th Street (between 7th Avenue and 8th Avenue), it is conveniently located near the Q or R 57 Street Station. Buy tickets online to see three floors of props, costumes, and behind the scenes from the show.
When you're done, walk to Columbus Circle to take the 1 or 2 uptown to 86 Street Station. Near the stop is Jacob's Pickles (509 Amsterdam Ave between 84th Street and 85th Street). While everything is delicious, our personal favorites are their 4 pickles for $11, poutine, sausage gravy smothered chicken, and grilled salmon salad. Portions are on the bigger side and are meant to be shared.
Don't stop now. Walk off the food a little bit by heading to Milk Bar (561 Columbus Avenue between 87th Street and 88th Street). Must tries are their cereal milk soft serve and crack pie. (Photos by milkbarstore.)
