This one leaves from dupont and it's cleaner and newer than the rest. I haven't used it yet but I've read about it.

 This one (possibly the one he referenced above?), has a distinct scent, eau de porta-potties
 http://www.washingtondeluxe.com/
 
 If you can leave from Rockville I recommend this one:
 http://www.apexbus.com/
 Not many people know about it so the last time I took it there were maybe 5 people on it.

I ate pizza at Grimaldi's in Brooklyn on Saturday, and it was as fantastic as ever.

you're going to have to be more specific.  there are thousands of restaurants in NYC, of all types and for all budgets.
 
 best deal i ever found was a hole-in-the-wall pakistani place on crosby just south of houston.  i was the only non-subcontinental and non-taxi-driving person there.  samosas were to die for, and a huge plate of food (as in couldn't finish it) was $3-4.

Moderately priced but really good-
 
 Serendipity will take reservations if you go for a meal but the place is really known for its dessert/frozen hot chocolate.
 
 Maison for Belgium Beer and Crepes.

Lombardi's has the best pizza.  It's in Little Italy.
 
 Serendipity is expensive on the food, but the frozen hot chocolate is totally worth it.
 
 Magnolia Bakery and Sugar Sweet Sunshine for cupcakes (but I think Sugar Sweet Sunshine's are better)
 
 Katz's Deli on the Lower East side for awesome homemade pickles, hot dogs and deli stuff (also the place where "that scene" from When Harry Met Sally was filmed)

 Perhaps one of the best places for an uptowner or out-of-towner to observe the hipster in his natural habitat, this tin ceiling-ed Lower East Side caf√© is the quintessential Bohemian hangout. Before the advent of Bloomberg‚??s anti-smoking laws, this former dingy coffee shop/performance space would have been the obvious spot to bum a Gaulois or Gitane. Now the only persistent smell at the expanded Pink Pony is the oily aroma of one too many unwashed artists wiling away hours in this linger-friendly space. Although there is a full menu‚??the Pink Pony is owned by Lucien proprietor Lucien Bahaj‚??the French-inflected fare goes chiefly by the book. Passable versions of bistro standards like salade nicoise, foie canard, and steak au poivre are not the big draws here. This loiterers heaven can be best utilized for in between-time coffees, camping out with a laptop or good book, and, of course, people watching. ‚?? Gabriella Gershenson
