I've been offered a job at 70k per year (pre tax) located in Manhattan to start in September of this year. I'd like to live as close to midtown as possible, but I'm also aware that rent is very expensive. What are my options for: 1 to 2 roomies, or a studio apartment around 1,200 per month. I'd be fine with up to a 45 minute commute. [more inside]
I'll be heading for the city in a few weeks, a Friday night to Sunday morning jaunt. Looking for a bar that won't get overcrowded right away with after-work drinkers to call a meetup of old friends, people on a certain webforum I frequent, etc. Nothing fancy but quirky is okay. [more inside]

7 half rowdy guys are staying at the Hilton Midtown tonight. We need good food and beers. We are wearing jeans. Would love a somewhat fun atmosphere. People watching. Some guys are on a budget. Others are not. Go.

Meeting my sister and BIL tonight. She's buying drinks at Mad46, but in return I need to find a "fun place to eat". Party of three, no special dietary requirements. 9-10 PM, I suppose. Any suggestions welcome. Thanks in advance, MeFi!
Pottering around NYC: I work near 34th St/Herald Square and have huge gaps in my work schedule. Help me find nearby places (walking distance or only a couple subway stops at the most) where I can escape the office? Slightly narrowing constraints inside: [more inside]

I got the interview! But I don't have a private area at my current job to take the phone call. Can anyone recommend somewhere within a 10-minute walk from 39th Street at 8th Ave where I could count on quiet and good cell phone reception? I'd be willing to pay for it if I have to, though not what a Times Square hotel room would cost.
I will travel from Ireland to study at The Art Students League on 57th St. Any recommendation on finding an adjacent good room to rent, or within easy access in a safe secure neighbourhood, as my budget is very tight. I would also be happy to swap accommodation or hospitality/study period. Thanks

I'll be spending two days in Manhattan, all by my lonesome. I'm not interested in gettin' my culture on. What should I do? My boyfriend bought me a night in a Midtown hotel. Awww. However, my stay has to take place this weekend (Fri./Sat.), when he'll be unavailable to join me. I'm shy/nerdy, so this puts the kibosh on super-social activities. However, I'm ALSO not terribly interested in seeing any museums/cultural attractions on this trip. Don't get me wrong - those things are delightful! - but it's spring break, so I'd like my trip to be a lil' more indulgent/eclectic/badass. [more inside]

What's the best way to get across midtown Manhattan by bicycle? Looking at bike maps of the city, it seems there's no bike lanes going East-West between the lower 20s and wayy up in 90th St (on the east side) and 77th St (on the west side) Assuming I want to get across town by travelling in the 50s (or reasonably close to that), which street(s) should I take for the safest, least traffic-rife ride?
So I've got about 6-8 coworkers coming into town in two weeks for a group 'fun event' that I'm in charge of planning. [more inside]
