  • Jonathan Levine Gallery - Source:
    "I’m really interested in the sort of pop surrealist galleries like Jonathan Levine's. To me, this gallery actually shows art that you don’t need an MFA to look at."
  • “The Box is an underground supper club in the Lower East Side. Their acts are very polished and well styled. It’s a mix of variety, burlesque, singers and circus acts. The place looks like the Moulin Rouge. It totally rocks! You should definitely go if you can get past the door guy. ”
  • “I absolutely love Jim Hanley’s Universe. I’ve done book signings there and they have absolutely everything. You won't even believe the things they have at Jim Hanley's. It's totally the mecca of geek but so cool."
  • “The Strand bookstore is one of the best ways to waste time. They have so many books and it's fun to just wander around there until one catches your eye.”
  • "The Sideshow by the Sea Shore out in Coney Island is one of my favorite things to do in the city. Go out there before the evil corporations destroy Coney Island for good.”
  • "The Bindlestiff Family Circus is just genius. You should definitely see them if they’re in town."
