Best places near Amsterdam Avenue...

Hi guys,

booked my hostel on Amsterdam Ave in Manhattan and wondered could anyone recommend any sites to find some decent sports bars, convenience stores, a laundrette and a barber shop nearby.

Thanks :)

I'd start with google. Select "maps" from google,com and enter the address of your hostel. The location will display, along with an option to "search nearby" and you can then enter any search term for whatever you're looking for.

Menupages.com for restaurants. Or Yelp.com

Amsterdam Avenue is 5 miles long. I assume you mean the Hostel at W 103rd St. Anyway, on Amsterdam and on Broadway, there is a convenience store on every block (about every 1/20 mile); there are laundromats within blocks (because it's near apartment buildings and a University), and there are thousands of barbershops in NYC. You are right near the 103 St station of the #1 train, and near enough to the 96th St. station of the #1,2,3 trains.

It's like saying: I'm in London along Bayswater/Oxford/New Oxford/High Holborn; is there a newsstand nearby?

You could also try the folks who run the hostel or perhaps even the other hostellers to see if they have any recommendations.

Also, recommendations here would be easier if we knew the nearest cross street.

Hey Steve T:-) Assuming you mean the one on 103rd and Amsterdam Avenue, more laundry places than you could shake a stick at.. as well as convenience stores from local bodegas to Walgreen's on 97th and Broadway.. to Duane Reade on 102nd and 106th Streets on Broadway.. Rite Aid on 104th and 110th Streets on Broadway;-)

For sports bars, check out the Dive.. one at 95-96th on Amsterdam.. another on Broadway and 101st Street.. Pourhouse between 107-108th on Amsterdam.. FWIW, the area on Amsterdam between 106-110th is packed with local bars, eateries.. you won't fall short on watching sports in the area;-)

For a local barber that's been around for eons, head to Alex's barber shop on 100th Street between Broadway and Amsterdam;-) EnJOY!

Assuming you are staying here: http://hinewyork.org/

There are tons of shops of all kinds along Broadway. There is also a Whole Foods grocery on Columbus between 97th and 100th that has a large take-out food buffet.
