so i'm thinking that i'll be moving to new york city in... oh, february. here's what i need:

1) a nice, cheap, spacious converted warehouse apartment in a nice building with a good view, a fire escape, kitchen with an island that i can hang pots over, bathtub (feet optional), high ceilings and friendly neighbors

2) a cushy part-time job with flexible hours, high pay, low supervision and little responsibility. preferably a computer job. you know, internet access and all.

3) information on good, cheap, vegan places to eat.

so if you lovely people can get back to me on that, i'd really appreciate it.

Mmm, yeah, good luck with 1 and 2.   Cheesy

Not sure if it's vegan or not, but I still get hungry sometimes for the dim sum from Vegetarian Paradise on 4th St.  Not sure if it's there anymore, either.

(Sorry to not be very helpful; I'm just going to go to bed and weep about the NYC restaurants I miss.  Kiev...VP...Veselka...Dojo...WAAAAH!  If you find that apartment and that job, kindly let me know if there are any openings, and I'll move back.)

i'm pretty sure that requests 1 & 2 only happen for characters in movies and sitcoms and to the folks from the first season of the "real world". if you find that you acheive these 2 goals, look around, there might be a camera following you.

as for 3, there's a place on 23rd between park and broadway called BONOBO'S.  i've never eaten there but my co-worker love the place.  i believe they are both vegan and raw foods.

hope this helps.

Indeed. Having lived in this city for 15 years, I can assure you that 1 and 2 do not exist in this universe unless you happen to be significantly independently wealthy. You won't even be able to get an apartment at all with only a part-time gig except for maybe a super duper cheap share where you're sharing a bedroom in an apartment that's falling apart and infesting with creep crawlies.  That being said, you might check http://www.craigslist.org. That's where all of the classified action's at these days.

If Angelica's Kitchen is still around, there's plenty of vegan goodness there and I am by no means vegan at all. There's also a raw food place that's supposed to be good on the UWS.

I think #1 can be achieved via having a sugardaddy or sugarmomma (you might wanna line that up beforehand), while #2 is feasible with some kind of a sex worker job...

best of luck Wink

ok so the two of us both are looking for the #2 Criteria in NYC at the moment  Wink

Ursonate...yeah Angelica's kitchen is still around and it still rocks, TravTrav, you must check it out!

Oh and Candle-lite cafe!     I know that there is a vegan diner in the village but its being renovated so the sign is down...

Good Luck in your search!  Ive got a friend in Brooklyn that rents with like 5 peeps and it sounds a lot like what Ursonate described he he he

TravTrav...check out theTHE POST PUNK KITCHEN ....its a DIY Vegan cooking show on access TV outta Brooklyn, they have bands play each episode too

Seriously, I'd start investigating how-to home repair books on pest control.  A caulk gun can keep out a multitude of roaches.

When in doubt, sauerkraut.

Veg City Diner on 14th - btw fifth and sixth avenue
Candle Cafe on the UES
Angelikas Kitchen

These aren't strictly Vegan - but have lots and lots of vegetarian options:

Wai Cafe - 6th ave and 1st ave
Dojos - 8th Street
Terra - 12th street
yaffa cafe - 8th street
pump energy food - 21st street
evas - 8th street
spring street naturals?  i think that's the name
cosmic cantina, maryanne's both offer tofu sour cream, soy cheese options w/burritos

Hope that's helpful.  There's also a guide to vegan restaurants in NYC sold at Whole Foods.
