Lower Manhattan -- that area south of Chambers Street that many only equate with courthouses, "Ground Zero", Century 21, Wall Street and being a ghost town after 5 PM or on the weekends -- is now home to the promotion Lower Manhattan Tuesdays presented by the Downtown Alliance for New York. It will run every Tuesday from May 27 to September 30.

A few of my recommendations:
Stone Street Tavern -- A friend chose this restaurant as the site of my birthday dinner a few years ago. Surf and turf was enjoyed by all. The location is a draw too as I'm a sucker for cobblestone, windy streets that bring me back to Old New York.
The Iron Horse -- skip Hogs and Heifers and go here. That is all. Oh, get on the giant swing too. And I know this is about Tuesdays but if you go on Sundays and buy a drink you get a free burger. Ok now, that is all.
City Sports -- their promo is for the Run Club but while you're there buy yourself a pair of supportive and ergonomically-correct sneakers for the miles that you'll cover and track on your pedometer that you'll also buy at City Sports.
Century 21 -- not that I'm a big shopper, but they're giving a free gift with no purchase necessary. When I do shop, I like a deal and what sort of travel specialist would I be if I didn't acknowledge the legions of visitors who flock to this location of Century 21.
Water Taxi - I like boats. Maybe because I'm a water sign and need to balance out living in the concrete jungle. Plus champagne on the river. I support that.
When I try some of the other restaurants offering Lower Manhattan Tuesdays deals, I'll report back. I have my eye on Merchants River House.
