Third trip to New York is happening next week, I am ready for something a little more than Times Square. New Yorkers, what to do this time? Curate my visit, and help me maybe get out of the city.
Last time you helped me with some fabulous shopping tips
, tatto parlour recommendations and more. I am ready for more of your sage advice!
This time I will be flying semi-solo, couchsurfing the upper west side and am pretty much my own boss. I would like to get outside the city a little, but to where? What is a feasible day-trip, ideally naturey or gentle-hikey? I could also imagine going to, I dunno, Philly or Fire Island if they are feasible as (not crazy expensive) day trips.
If nothing else I intend to try and get to the cloisters.
I love NYC and just wandering around the place keeps me plenty entertained, but it's always good to have a few places in mind, so hit me with your tips for things to consider while *not* out of town.
To give an idea of my taste, previous faves are: Bryant Park & Zeytinz, Superhero Supply Store, Fette Sau, High-Line, Metropolitan Museeum, Argo Tea, Jersey Gardens Mall.
Already planned for this time: Eats at Xian foods, Caracas Arepas, Smorgasburg, seeing Walter de Maria exhibits and Fireflies on the water the Whitney, lots of cheap cocktails somewhere, Women in Aviation and the shuttle at Entrepid, Brooklyn Pride, shopping Demeter fragrences, some kinda outdoor movie, possibly museeum mile on the 12th, and maybe drinks with you guys :)
