Need a snack?
When your blood sugar drops precipitously between scouring
MOMA's many floors and a rousing skate at Wolman Rink, you
might stop by a Korean deli for a pick-me-up. Don't overlook
the city's other ubiquitous font of snacks: health food stores.
No longer do these stores' foods taste indistinguishable from
their packaging. Along most of the avenues you'll find these
often yellow-awning'd stores packed with snackables, from
dried nuts and fruits to actually tasty soy sandwiches, bento
boxes, and usually fresh-squeezed vegetable and fruit juices.
