I'm in NYC for 12 hours. What is something awesome and Paleo for me to do?

So I land in NYC after spending the last two months in Oman. My flight arrives at 8pm, and there is no connecting flight to home (RDU) until the next day at 8am. So I'm "stuck" in NYC for 12 hours. I don't plan to get a hotel room, but instead explore the city and sleep some in the airport.

How should I spend my few late night hours in New York City? Can anyone suggest a good place to get some paleo grub? Anyone live in NYC and want to meet up to have some food and fun?

You can take the airtrain to the A, then transfer to the L at Broadway Junction. The L at Bedford Ave is the stop for both those places, and getting off there is a good starting point for finding other things to do.

You'll have to do a bit of transferring... http://www.hopstop.com?action=route&route_id=a9cc20a01fccmate You don't have to use the bus at the end, you can just walk west on Metropolitan towards Havemmeyer St.

If you want something a little more off the beaten path, come to Williamsburg, Brooklyn and go to Fette Sau (BBQ) or El Amacen (Argentinian, a great place to sit at the bar). It's a lively neighborhood at night -- always something going on.

I really don't like Churasco Plataforma. Meat is pretty low quality. I suggest you hit up the West Village, which is a cool neighborhood in Manhattan, and eat at the bar at Takashi. Start with raw liver, yooke (tartare) and beef tendon. Then get the grilled tongue experience. Totally paleo.

I love NYC. Everyone is very friendly, those that think otherwise, never been there in recent years. I love Madison Square Park, stand in line and get a Shake Shack burger, hold the bun. Walk across the Brooklyn Bridge and take in the views. Central Park is the best. Enjoy.

Climb to the top of the Empire State Building, like King Kong did.

I recommend exploring the west side below 23rd Street (Chelsea and the West Village) and then heading over to the East Village. You'll get lots of walking and interesting sights. One of the best things about the city is the adventure of it. You'll make discoveries along the way. Bring an umbrella and have a blast!

Not sure how to spell it, go to Churasco Plataforma. It's an all you can eat Brazilian Steakhouse. They have a great salad bar too.
