Best things to do in New York
Essential city info, articles & travel tips from our local hosts
Once you’ve ticked-off Times Square and the Empire State, you’ll want to unlock the real New York. From quirky cafes in Brooklyn to sexy speakeasies on the Lower East Side to a secret museum hidden in an elevator, you’ll have an ever-growing list of things to do in New York City. Walking along the High Line is a great way to enjoy spectacular views of the Hudson River before hopping on the Staten Island Ferry to get that iconic photograph of the city skyline and enjoy the best views of the Statue of Liberty. Stone Street in the heart of the Financial District is the perfect spot to lunch like a New Yorker before walking across the iconic Brooklyn Bridge to the Brooklyn Heights Promenade for the panoramic views of Lower Manhattan- it’s great if you’re looking for things to do in New York City with kids too! As dusk approaches, grab a pizza from Grimaldis Pizza before you head off to Greenwich Village to jive the night away at the Blue Note.
