New York Times’ Frugal Traveler Matt Gross brought his globe-trotting thriftiness to NYC this week and put together a low-budget traveler’s guide to the city that he says should offer “everything you’ll need to figure out how to have a good time without a Wall Street bonus.” Sounds like our kind of guide—and in fact, which recent list of B&Bs for under $150 a night does Gross include in his handy section on where to crash?

What did he miss? I’ll go first: pizza.
