8. Hector’s Diner

Tucked away under the High Line, in the shadow of The Standard Hotel, you will find Hector’s Diner. For many years, it served the workers at the numerous meatpacking plants at all hours of the day and night. Today it serves as a little piece of old New York as well as a favorite film location for many of the old Law & Order episodes. Located at 44 Little West 12th Street.
