Excellent tasting Indian Street Food. Kathi Rolls made with Chicken or vegetarian or egg or Paneer. Also, try their Tawa Chicken with Paratha. On an Average it cost $5-$7 per dish. Very cheap for NYC.

Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was
here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter
culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for
its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to
get a feel for this diverse and energetic
neighbourhood. You’ll find NYU students, street
performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the
fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess.
