100 Things to Do in New York City Before You Die is a great guide to discovering the quirky treasures of NYC, or re-discovering some of the most famous spots in the world.
Jones Wood Foundry is included in the book for its inventive menu and daily specials. It is named for the iron foundry that was here in the late 1800s, which made many of the manhole covers for a growing New York City.

The toughest part of writing 100 Things to Do in New York City Before You Die was limiting it to just 100 things.
Because we all know that NYC is limitless for those who enjoy great food from around the world, great culture including theater and museums, great history, the great outdoors including parks and gardens, and great shopping that ranges from top designers to top designer fashions at steep discounts.
100 Things to Do in NYC Before You Die features
Great food includes:
A restaurant in Staten Island where all the chefs are grandmothers, and the annual NYC Restaurant Week, when some 400 top NYC restaurants offer prix fixe three-course meals for $26 at lunch and $42 at dinner, and more.

World-class museums from the Met and the Cloisters to the stories of immigrants who helped make NYC great, at the Tenement Museum, the Museum of Chinese in America, and, of course, at Ellis Island. And dancing under the stars at the annual Midsummer Night Swing in Lincoln Center.
