Lonely flight attendant...Help me!

I just moved to New York (Queens, to be exact) from California to be near my JFK base. I am finding it difficult to leave my crash pad to go out to explore NYC. My job can be very lonely as I don't have much time for a social life, and I do not participate in the "going to bars with Pilots to get drunk" normal activities that seem to be so prominent in aviation.
I need to meet people and I don't know how. NYC can be a very, very lonely place when you are always on your own and don't know anyone. The other girls are all pretty much from New York and don't really help much. I have been in the city a couple of times and it is so intimidating when you are alone. I have looked at the Village Voice, but to no avail as I don't know what the hell anything is/where the hell anything is.
I am young (22) and want to find something mentally stimulating other than the typical shopping experience the other flight attendants seem to "love". I need coffee shops, good shows, bars with somewhat intelligent people (or is that an oxymoron?) how to get around, and thrift stores so that I can finally find a coat that will suit this weather. I feel like I am looking for LA in NYC, and I need to stop this.
Can you fellow New Yorkers help me?
