The Downtown Project is a collection of eclectic neighborhood itineraries spotlighting our favorite restaurants, shops and fun things to do year round in New York City (and beyond). When you feel like being a tourist in your own town or exploring something new, make it a project and check out some of our new twists on the old standbys or, see where our Featured Contributors have been lately.
We call all of this our little passion project… You can call it The Downtown Project.
