Unlike watching paint dry, seeing cheese age is a rather delicious affair that you can partake in through a tour of Murray’s cheese caves, which are the oldest in the country. The “overall guiding philosophy” at the caves is to “take cheeses that arrive with ‘one note’ and impart them with considerably more depth of flavor, like curing fresh pork legs into ham or fermenting grape juice into wine.” While the shop is open regularly, the caves are not, so you’ll have to register for a class or tour in order to see them.
An old steakhouse with a “legendary” mutton chop and the largest collection of churchwarden pipes in the world. The pipes that cover its ceiling have been smoked by notable people such as Theodore Roosevelt, Buffalo Bill Cody, Herbert Hoover, Albert Einstein, and Babe Ruth.
Originally a welfare hotel, Carlton Arms re-vamped itself by beginning an art-in-residence program through the Carlton Arms Art Project. Up-and-coming artists from all over the world came to design and hand-decorate every room and every inch of space. Today it is a super cute, arty hostel – Banksy, street artist extraordinaire, has also painted here.
A quirky, vintage-style hotel that features rooms modeled after old-fashioned train cabins. Its old-timey touches include bellhops, maids in black-and-white uniforms, carved moose heads, and stuffed monkeys wearing fez hats. The American Seaman’s Friend Society Sailors’ Home and Institute, as it was originally known, was designed by William A. Boring (the architect who created Ellis Island’s immigrant station). As the name might suggest, it was originally built for sailors. In 1912, the hotel housed the survivors of the Titanic, and the ship’s surviving crew held a memorial service there four days after the tragedy.
Korean seafood spot that has food so fresh that it is still wriggling on your plate – literally. If you order hot pot, all the animals are still alive before the water gets boiling, and tourists come in droves to try the raw octopus.
