I've seen this jacket posted on this forum before as a suggestion. I've no personal experience nor do I own a motorcycle (yet. MSF course this summer, here I come) but it doesn't look hideous and is available with CE armor. Seriously considering getting one myself once I pass the MSF course. Every other armored jacket I know of looks like power ranger steeze.
The halal cart on 53rd and 6th. Quality has declined a bit but it's still worth it. Pro tip: Go across the street. Same owners. No line. Get a combo platter (chicken + lamb). A little bit of hot sauce goes a long way unless you really like spicy food. Some people drench the entire platter in white sauce but refrain from putting too much.
I always stop by Strand Books whenever I'm in Union Square. Usually end up leaving with a book.

Anyone have experience with April 77 Joeys? In particular the warsaw raw black coated ones. Similar in finish to Acne or Nudie coated denim? Any b&m stores in NYC to feel the texture in person? Also, I'm a true 28 inch waist, size 25 in APC PS. Go TTS with them if I can't try them on in a store?
