New York City

A guide to NYC

The epitome of New York City, Manhattan is the place to be.

Here a guide to some of the best of New York City:

Neighbourhoods

Things to do

  • US Open at Flushing Meadow: The facilities at Flushing Meadow are really impressive — nicely landscaped, expansive grounds (with free wifi — total bonus), and all the staff very friendly and welcoming. A great tennis experience.
  • Fashion Week: You may not be able to land an invite to any of the runway shows, but the city really embraces Fashion Week and there’s generally free events and in-store activity that you can easily throw yourself into.
  • Hang out in Washington Square Park (where they have a replica of the Arc de Triomph) for great people watching.
  • The Avenue of Americas has s a cool market on Sundays.
  • Go jogging along the Hudson River
  • Explore the High Line park. Really clever use of space — beautiful plantings of grasses and shrubs along an old elevated subway line.
  • Grand Central Station is a beautiful train station – there’s also a surprisingly good oyster bar there that is worth checking out.

Gay Bars

  • Stonewall on Christopher Street – an iconic landmark
  • Duplex, West Village — a cabaret bar with a mixed crowd
  • Boots & Saddle bar, West Village — we hit karaoke night for an older crowd
  • Bar-tini Ultra Lounge on 10th Avenue — a slightly younger crowd
  • The Ritz on West 46th Street – This place was busy but it was odd mixed crowd and the music wasn’t really working.
  • Boiler Room – Lower East Side
  • Eastern Bloc – Lower East Side

Logistics

  • If you’re going to be in town for any length of time, a 7-day metro card takes some of the hassle out of travelling on the subway. It costs about USD$30.
