Recommendations from locals in Kips Bay, Manhattan

I will be staying in a rented apartment at 28th St and 2nd Ave in the Kips Bay Area of New York City for a week at the end of April. Can anyone familiar with the area (Kips Bay, Manhattan) orient me to local transportation, fun activities, and good eats?

In particular I would like recommendations to the local moderately priced restaurants, especially places for a good breakfast? My apartment has a full kitchen but I am reluctant to spend much time cooking; are local take-out restaurants a good idea? What is the nearest/best public transportation routes? Health issues may make it hard to walk long distances but I can afford cabs: where in Kips Bay is the best place to catch them?
And in general, what are the terrific things to see and do in New York at that time of year? I will be on a budget, but with the money saved on accommodations, I can afford some splurges also. What are your favorites?
