If you want unusual and quirky things to do then you’ve come to the right place. There’s a whole load of unusual things to do New York that are completely unique to the city, which is one of the things I love most about it, you can find pretty much anything here, no matter how weird or wonderful. Sure, the main tourist attractions are great, but if you want to see NYC off the beaten path, then you’re going to want some help off someone who knows this city like the back of their hand; and that person is me. I’m going to give you some of my all-time favourite New York activities that are a little bit different to the norm, if you’re lucky I’ll maybe even share a couple of the hidden gems in NYC as well, just don’t tell anyone. The key to discovering the weird and wonderful is to explore the hugely versatile selection of districts that this city has, that’s what makes New York so great. You’re probably not going to find these in any guidebook, so you can throw that away for the time being. Anyway, let’s get to it, this is my ultimate list of the best quirky things to do in New York that I just know you’re going to love, trust me.
