If you are a foodie, then New York is the place for you. From Italian to Chinese, the options never end! And, by having so many options, you can find great food within a reasonable price range.
Some students eat off campus all of the time—that may be the way they spend their Friday evening. Other students go out to eat only for special occasions or primarily for Sunday brunch! No matter what neighborhood you are in—be it Midtown or Union Square—you will always find exactly what you are in the mood for. But please tip your waiter well. It costs a lot of money to live in New York, and taking people's orders all day barely pays the bills.
