Whether you’re a well-versed cinephile or a weekend film buff, Anthology Film Archives needs to be on your list. At this old world institution, their programming is well-curated, bringing in American independent and international avant-garde films. Make sure you arrive 30 minutes in advance to buy tickets, which are only available for purchase at Anthology’s box office on the day of the screening.

After, head to Veselka for a quintessential East Village all-hours dining experience. This diner serving classic comfort foods, like pierogis, will provide a quick but comprehensive tour of what Eastern Europe has on culinary offer. Warm up with borscht, potato pancakes, and, of course, the signature pierogis.
