I may be coming to Ny in the summer. Where are there shuls with regular minyonim in Manhattan in the summer?

Is there anywhere i can see it online? Also is there a big selection of places to eat? I know places like Dougies, J2 and Cake K. Anything else.

All help would be appreciated.

Anywhere you go you should be able to find regular minyanim and kosher food.

Anywhere? No, there aren't shuls anywhere in Manhattan. Mostly they're on the Upper West Side.

That's true. I just have specified, but isn't there also a Lower East Side with a lot of frum stuff?

Where is gramercie (sp?) park located?

Awesome: restaurants are easily found. Just do a google search on "kosher restaurants in Manhattan". Loads will come up. And try: www.godaven.com

Select Manhattan from metropolitan area drop down. It'll give you a list.

That's a great list, thanks - just make sure the place is an actual restaurant. I see the local list of my location they have a deli listed as a meat restaurant, and while you can pick up a deli sandwich to go, it's not exactly a restaurant with menu options, eating space, etc.

I see another place that only has a 'to go' option so make sure to call ahead as well.

Although I find the $$ options and rating pretty on target with my opinion.

Where in Manhattan will you be? Sometimes kosher restaurants have minyanim, and I know Chabad of Midtown has one every day.

As for restaurants, this is my go-to list:

You can sort by price and neighborhood. The kashrus isn't always specified, so ask around here or call them up.

I like http://www.kosher-ny.com/ because you can search by neighborhood, however, check into the hashgacha (just because it has one doesnt mean its one you'd eat from).
If I have interesting things on the walls, no one will notice how dirty the floors are - right?

I loved this site, but whoever ran nachas.org apparently forgot to renew his domain registration. This is very annoying.

I sent an e-mail to the guy who ran the database, as I had previously e-mailed updates to him, but the e-mail bounced back. I don't know if he was in charge of nachas.org or just using their domain, but I hope that the database will find a new home. If anyone hears anything, please let me know.

No, all residential neighborhoods in Manhattan where light skinned people live have at least one shul--if not a few--within a mile.

There is also a large selection of kosher restaurants--meat, dairy, Chinese, Indian, Moroccan, Italian, etc.

What made you prefer the nachas list over that of shamash's?


I find that it lists everything in one place and I don't have to start typing away and searching.

You prefer a really long list to a searchable database?


It isn't/wasn't a random list. It was organized by borough and then by location. It was very easy to find the restaurants in one location, because they were all listed together.

But it was indeed a very long list? (I never visited the site, so do not know.)

Why don't you visit the site, and then you'll have some information.

Shamash's site allowed for user reviews; is that not pertinent to your decision-making process?

No
