Good, inexpensive food near the Woolworth Building

Hello! I'm going to be in NYC this summer for several weeks in July and August. I'm looking for inexpensive, good food within walking distance of the Woolworth Building (located on Broadway and Barclay across from City Hall).

I will have approximately an hour for lunch and, unfortunately, my budget will be tight. I'm familiar with some delis in the area, but sometimes they aren't the greatest and the quality of food can be hit or miss. Lunch or dinner would be for one person, most likely take out or eat in quickly. I'm open to any kind of food you can think of, as long as its inexpensive.

Thank you everyone for your ideas. I'm looking forward to them! Have a great day!

  1. 1. Burittoville - S/s of Chambers between Chruch and Broadway.
    2. Sophie's - Cuban food. W/S of Chambers just east of Church.
    3. Pakastani Tea House - W/S of Church and Reade St (?).
    4. Golden Crust - Jamaican. W/S of Church, just south of Reade.
    5. Carl's Cheese Steaks. N/S of Chambers just west of Broadway.
    Also, in the summer, there is a Greenmarket on the Southeast corner of Chambers and Broadway.

    Enjoy your summer in NYC!

    1. there's a glatt kosher falafal place on Ann st just east of broadway - one of my regular spots when i was in the area.

      there's also a good healthy deli type place on barclay across the street from the woolworth (i think it has healthy in the name, or fresh, or seomthing like that) it looks a bit like a hole in the wall but is cheap and has good sandwiches, soups, muffins, etc. worth a try.

      if you are feeling a lack on inspiration, the amish market at west broadway and park place (a block or two west of the woolworth) has tons of food options, mostly of decent to good quality, and mostly under $10 for lunch.

        I second the glatt kosher place and Amish. If I recall correctly, Amish has outdoor tables. And it's Golden Krust (not Crust).
