    Hi Ahmed,

    There are many things to do in NYC : Rockefeller Plaza to admire the city of NYC, walk in Central Park, enjoy a night in Times Square, take the boat to Staten Island and admire The Statue of Liberty while cruising, have a burger, have a typical breakfast, etc.

    If you want something more unsual, there are many startups such as BubbleGlobe or Vayable offering you the opportunity to visit NYC in a unusual way with locals.

    Have fun in NYC :)

    Coney Island and Brighton Beach you have to take the B or Q train to get there but really simple. The boardwalk is amazing and if you get off at Coney Island and hang out for a bit you can walk 10 min to Brighton Beach. Such an unusual area with Ukrainian Russian street food and cafes and shops. Coney Island is interesting because it has old school amusement park huge candy store aquarium and this muscle beach little area. It's like experiencing an 80s movie.

      Cafe galchik not sure if spelling it correctly had amazing pierogi and this interesting non alcoholic drink called kvas. Also go into gourmet food shop cause it has so much amazing nuts and dried fruit and cracker snacks you can get for real cheap. It reminded me of Istanbul and if you want to get good beers and pickled Russian veggies go to kebeer bar and grill. Such an awesome area... Really felt like I was in a different country haha · (0 likelikes)

    New York never sleeps and always on the move! Keep up and take a group class: Aerial Yoga at Om Factory Flight School, Trapeze School New York, The Fhitting Room or SoulCycle Union Square

    Look out for shows at The Bowery Electric, Brooklyn Bowl, Terminal 5 or Webster Hall. A lot of places offer live music as well, I follow an awesome cover band called City of Six and they play between Toshi's Living Room and Prohibition. Another option is to wake up early and take advantage of ABC's GMA Summer Concert Series, they have a solid lineup! More info here: gmaconcerts.com.


    Similar to the click through game Escape The Room NYC is frustrating, but rewarding at the end if you escape!

    Last but not least, Museum Mile, inclusive of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and more! Museum of Modern Art, Whitney Museum and David Zwirner Gallery are all great as well!

    Hey Ahmed,

    Here are a few ideas:

    1) Do a Queen's food tour - Joe DiStefano of Chopsticks and Marrow (also featured on Bourdain and Zimmern's shows, does a number of them you can book through Vayable)

    2) I recently built this itinerary for a friend who was visiting NYC. It's customized to her schedule for a long weekend in NYC a few weeks ago, but there may be some ideas there good for you, including a Chelsea (New York) art gallery tour, a visit to the new Whitney Museum in the Meatpacking District paired with great food at Santina (an 1960s Italian Coastal-themed restaurant), a jazz concert at Jazz Standard, and a few Brooklyn warehouse parties thrown in.

    3) Visit Hudson Valley and have dinner Blue Hill At Stone Barns

    4) And if money is no object, of course, rent a house in the Hamptons and check out the nightlife scene there in the summer.

    - Susan

    Consider Museum Hack, a great way to tour the MET. Perhaps the VIP night tour?
