What To Do In New York

Wed Sep 08, 2004 9:24 am

Sorry about the flames. I can't get rid of them, but I guess the topic says it all... it's not a critical announcement.

I might have some spare time in New York, and I wonder if you have any good tips on what to do there except for the "usual" tourist things. More like something the local's enjoy doing. Unusual things are appreciated  Big grin

go to dinner at peter luger's steakhouse, the best steak house on the east coast! other than that, i don't really know. i do my thing but i don't really know what a tourist does here in the city. i know every time my buddy comes up from austin he's usually looking to go shopping. there's tons of that here. also, there are broadway shows to see.

if you want unusual then when i was in high school (years ago) my gf and i would spend a day sitting in the park, either union aquare or washington square, just watching people and trying to guess what they did for a living, where they were going etc... i know, it sounds corny but it wasted our days. then again, we were usually wasted when doing so.

Broadway shows, dinner, museums, or just walk around...you can't really go to Manhattan and NOT do touristy things.

The other four boroughs can get boring real fast, unless you're there for something specific. There's also Shea and Yankee stadiums for some all-American baseball. If you've seen Men In Black (first one), you might get a kick out of seeing the two towers/UFO out in Flushing Meadows Corona Park in Queens.

As for 'unusual' things, there's a strip club around the corner from my elementary school. If that strikes a chord, I don't know.  Big grin


What're the dates?

1. Stay out of the Bronx. Don't even go to see Yankees Stadium unless there is a game going on right then.
2. Central Park (during the day)
3. Metropolitan Museum of Art. How many days do you have?
4. Guggenheim Museum, at least to see the outside.
5. Eat lunch at a museum cafe.
6. Eat dinner in Chinatown.
7. Stay out of the Bronx.
8. If you have more time, check out Flushing Meadows where they had the World's Fair and the current location of the Tennis Hall of Fame.
9. Brooklyn Botanical Gardens.
10. Take the Staten Island Ferry, just to get close to the Statue of Liberty (which you can't really go up in, anyway) and to see the city from New York Harbor.
11. Coney Island, if you have time.
12. I mean it, STAY OUT OF THE BRONX!
Up, up and away!

I recommend dinner or brunch at Pastis. Its on 9th Ave at Little 12th St.

There's a little restaurant called Jane's on Houston near Macdougal that's also nice for brunch.

You might enjoy a club called Pravda, on Lafayette between Prince and Houston. Very different, you should try to go.

Definitely walk through Central Park, and spend some time looking at Times Square, even though they're touristy. Don't eat at the Square though.

Strip clubs are not that interesting. Bronx by night sounds interesting.

rengold, never thought of the SI ferry like that before. but yea, it's free and it offers great views of the city from the harbor. come to think of it, i'm going to go on it my next day off just to get shots of the city. and what do you ahve against the bronx? lol... i don't even go there without police escorts. also, find a local to show you around. it's probably going to be easier for you then. that's what my buddy from austin does every time he comes here.

Staying out of the Bronx can be a tourist activity, albeit an unhappy one, should you end up on a bridge approach without a map. Watch out for the guys with sticks and bottles at the end of the ramp in the Bronx... If you don't want to pay them, turn on your windshield wipers... but if they get any water on your windshield, they'll want money.

I guess my days will be booked with - walking and eating... as everyone recommends...

I might end up somewhere spotting planes, who knows. Just to check the places out and perhaps meet some people I've been working with. I'm not a spotter myself.

Spotting girls.. well.. I'm single, so who knows. Some nice clubs or bars to go to would be nice, meeting and talking to people. I'm staying in upper west.

(Yeah, I guess I shouldn't go to clubs in Bronx... right??)  Big grin

Nothing wrong with going to Yankee Stadium, even if they're not playing. A tour might be a pretty fun activity...Yankee Stadium is one of the most famous sporting arenas in North America...just take the subway there...there are places in the Bronx that are a lot worse than Yankee Stadium (this is coming from a former New Yorker, and driving out of the Bronx, while a little challenging, is nothing compared to Boston traffic...just go for the 3rd Ave Bridge...).

As for things the locals do, hmmm...I would say Broadway shows do attract a mix of locals and tourists, depends on the season. The aforementioned baseball games are mostly locals.

As for eating at Times Square, there is one restaurant that I do like there...Foley's Fish House in the Renaissance. It's semi-formal (collared shirt and slacks should do), the food is excellent, and the view is great (overlooking Times Square by the NBC tv monitor). I would avoid the more touristy (Planet Hollywood, ESPN, etc.) for meals if you're looking for a real New York dining experience (my take is I could go to those places in any number of cities, so why go in New York when there are countless options).

And for The Bronx, basically, just use common sense. There isn't a whole lot to do there (the only major attractions are Yankee Stadium and Fordham University), and I have never felt unsafe on the subway.

Check out the new Time Warner Center and Shops at Columbus Circle, nice place to have lunch is Whole Foods on the lower level. Awesome views of Central Park South, especially from the Lobby of the new Mandarin Hotel.

http://www.wirednewyork.com/aol/shops_columbus_circle.htm

http://www.wirednewyork.com/hotels/mandarin_oriental/default.htm

The lobby of the Mandarin hotel is actualy on the 35th floor of the complex, but you don't have to be a hotel guest to go up stairs and check out the view from the lobby. There's an awesome bar/lounge up there, though the drinks might be expensive.

Another favorite place of mine to visit is Grand Central Terminal , there's a great dining concourse on the lower level.

Henks- Just take it all in. New York is a helluva town, with never a dull moment if you enjoy watching people.

And never buy the claims of those who would tell you New Yorkers are rude; they're not rude, they're just... New Yorkers. They might not want to "make nice" for you, but given the opportunity, a New Yorker will bend over backwards to help.

Enjoy yourself!

I will second the suggestion to visit the USS Intrepid, particularly seeing as how you are an A.netter. The museum was closed for a while, but it's now open as of last week, I believe. Go to: www.intrepidmuseum.org/ for info. Regards..Jack

Sccutler is right... Just don't ask two New Yorkers to help you at the same time... They will get into an argument about the best way to help you (best directions, best time to go, best place to get tickets, etc. etc. etc.)  Wink/being sarcastic

By all means, yes. The buildings are beautiful.

If I was going to be there, I'd give you a tour of the rest of the building. But alas, I don't make it to New York as often as I'd like.

I visit NY at least twice a year, usually for business, and I ALWAYS make sure to add on a few days of leisure time.

It's one of my favorite cities worldwide (with London and Berlin), just being there makes me feel good!
Be there, walk around, breathe in the city, day and night!!

Intrepid seems like a good idea, if weather is fine, go on a boat trip around Manhattan by WaterTaxi (those yellow boats), it's cheap and fun and nice way to get from Intrepid to the Upper East Side (which is a world of its own, and nice, too).

Should you want to see a show, try to get a ticket on the same day, you can buy these at 2 ticket outlets (sorry forgot the name) on Times Square (that would be Broadway and 46th or so) and close to Pier 17, they sell tickets on the day of performance for as much as 50% off.

Oh and btw: You don't want to go to the Bronx...did someone mention that already?  Big grin Big grin

So much to do.

There are something like 12,000 restaurants, so I'd stay away from the tourist areas.
I also think that if you've been to NYC a couple of times, you should go to the outer boroughs, to get a more authentic NYC experience, so go to Brooklyn, Park Slope great restaurants there, Brooklyn Heights, Coney Island (even if it rains, you can go to a freak show) Brighton Beach to look at the Russians (It is a trip to go to the night clubs there, get wasted on more Vodka you ever thought you could drink, and see some obviously Russian mobster types mingle with everyone)

Queens, the most ethnically diverse part of the most ethnically diverse city in the world. Name a country and they have a 'hood here. Walk Flushing and go from Korea to China to India to Israel in a half/hour. Also Jackson heights,for the best Indian or Thai food you can ever eat. Astoria for Bangladeshi food followed by Greek desserts. Even I have to admit Queens is ugly though.

The Bronx, it's not *that* bad. The zoo is great. Especially the ape house.
I may be ugly. I may be an American. But don't call me an ugly American.

The was (and hopefully still is) a great restaurant just off the west side highway called Gulf Coast - a bit of good old Louisiana cuisine. Can't remember exactly where it is, but somewhere below the 50s. Anyone know if it's still there and the cross street? If so, I highly recommend the frog's legs.

what's all the fuss about the Bronx? As a native New Yorker, born and raised in NYC and who spont most of my time in the Bronx between school and friends, I can assure you, it's very safe during the day. True, there are some neighborhoods you might want to stay out of, especially being a tourist, such as the South Bronx, but I can almost guarantee you you'll be pretty safe most anywhere that is pretty populated in the Bronx. (You probably won't want to walk down a residential street anyway).

I would avoid it at night though, as it can get pretty sketchy, and most people are at home, leaving less people on the street, and more people more prone to attack you.

Maybe I'm not afraid because I've been exposed to it, but I really think it's not that bad, and gets a bad rap. Just use common sense, watch your back and you'll be fine.

If you visit ground zero you will find the new PATH station. It will take you under the Hudson River to Jersey City and Hoboken, NJ. If you get off at the Exchange Place station in Jersey City you will be at O'Grundy Park on the Jersey City waterfront, right across the river from the Trade Center buildings that were not destroyed. It's a bit of a walk, but you can also get to Liberty State Park that has gorgeous views of the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, the Verazanno Bridge, and more. There is a lot of restoration and new buildings to see as well. One of the finest restaurants in the city is on Warren St. three blocks South of Montgomery St., the Exchange Place pedestrian exit. I guess I don't have to tell you to bring a camera. This is also accessible from EWR via the monorail, to Penn. Station, Newark, to the Path train/WTC. Let me know if you need help if you like the idea. Nice way to keep your visit at a much less hectic pace than a visit to the big city.

Carmines isn't as good as it used to be. I've been going there with my family (and extended family in Manhattan) nearly every Thankgiving eve for the past twelve years.

Henrik,
Even though its not an 'off the beaten path' sort of thing, you can't miss the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA). The Ellis Island Museum is another pretty cool place to visit, as well as the Statue of Liberty (which was recently reopened). Again, not really off the beaten path, but still worth a visit.

As for off the beaten path, I'd recommend the New York Transit Museum in Brooklyn if you're into subways, taxis, and all that kind of stuff. The Museum of Television and Radio is another really cool place to visit. You can basically watch any television show episode from the past 30 years, watch old advertisements. I don't know if you'd really "appreciate" it as much as an American would considering that most of the stuff there is from American television, but its still interesting none-the-less.

As for bars....

My favorites bars:
Turtle Bay (in the Murray Hill district, I believe)--this is one of the best
McFaddens (Midtown)
Trinity Pub (Upper East Side)
Dublin House (Upper West Side)
And there is an Irish bar I want to say is around 62nd and 1st, whose name is escaping me.

Hi all,

Thanks for all your suggestions! I've been walking way too much! Met some celebrities, and visited lot's of places.

The most fun part I guess was the Bronx... and in Harlem people told me to "stay out"... perhaps time to get a better sun-tan!  Big grin

I'm currently bored at the Hilton Garden Inn on Staten Island... I might just rent a car to go to see something else than the city. Tomorrow I'll likely go spotting in JFK with Some A.netters... we'll see. Hoping for good weather!!

Try to make a point to get to Rescue 4, The rescue companies are considered the elite of the elite in FDNY. I have never heard of anyone ever having a bad experience stopping in(not that you feel like your just walking in on them). Especially in the outer boroughs besides Manhattan where they get tons of visitors, they love having guests. And for bonus points bring food!!
