New York on the Cheap

As a child, when I came to New York City with my parents to visit my grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins, I loved nothing more than reading the Zagat guide. For an Ohio-reared boy such as myself, the guide provided a portal to a new, ever-more delicious universe packed with "great" "descriptions" of "unparalleled food" and "peerless service." So, I consider myself super-lucky this week to have been able to contribute my two cents to Zagat's inexpensive grub guide. I provided a daylong eating arc, focusing on breakfast, lunch and dinner done for dirt-cheap. What are your favorite inexpensive foods in the city?
