been a new yorker all my life. i hope you’re not coming in july/august. the humidity is awful here and the streets literally smell like shit. the subways are so hot and it’s unbearable. 

the high line is a pretty touristy spot, but i still enjoy going there. definitely check out free galleries in the chelsea area, and shop around the east village! there are ton of little boutique and thrift stores there that you won’t find anywhere else. also, you might want to venture out into the other boroughs. queens is awesome for its diversity. you can get great south american and asian food.

I loveeee the high line. Definitely one of my favorite things to do in NYC, and I’ve lived in Manhattan for over 12 years now.

Some other cool NY night-time activities are ‘Sleep No More’ and ‘Escape the Room’.  DH and I like hanging out in Hudson River Park.  They just opened a new oyster bar and there’s a mini golf course on the Hudson down in Tribeca which is lots of fun.

Bellagiobride:  food-wise, “shake shack” and “artichoke”…both are great for grabbing a bite on the run and there are a few locations around the city….

I love Soho and the Village to walk around. I disagree that the “streets smell like shit.” That’s a bit harsh. It is very humid here right now. I live in brooklyn near the Promenade and I like to go over there and walk around. I would avoid Times Square, Statue of Liberty, and stuff like that. It depends what you’re into for us to really make recommendations. There is also Central Park but that could be miserable depending on location, crowds, and heat.

Hi! I live in NYC, there’s so much to do that it really depends on what you’re into. If you’re a partier and you want to see the whole hipster new york scene then I’d take the L train to Bedford avenue and bar hop (also cute boutiques there). If you’re into ethnic food then go to Queens (Astoria for greek and italian food, flushin for Indian and Asian cuisine). The museum of natural history is impressive (dinosaur bones), and the space and air museum is cool if you’re into that kind of thing. The Lower East Side is great for a more club bar atmosphere (but be prepared to pay a cover charge). Of course 5th avenue or Lexington have lots of the big shops (Chanel, Saks, etc.). If you come during the summer then check out free outdoor concerts and plays, there’s loads of them. Enjoy!

Following this thread. I have plans to spend my 23rd birthday in New York next March. I’ve hears Harlem was a pretty cool place to check out.
