the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building,
iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal
and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop
hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is

Regarding NY Luncheonette being open on Christmas Day, I have to admit I'm not sure. However, give them a call at (212) 838 0165 and get a quick answer. Sorry I wasn't very helpful.
