Over at Ask Metafilter, an intriguing query: "I'm going to NYC for a week in September. I need recommendations of the best alternative/weird/ unusual/eye-opening places in Manhattan." An amusing list is already underway, including this suggestion consistent with today's theme: "I would recommend Red Hook in Brooklyn. Hard to get to but worth it."
