COOL THINGS TO DO IN NYC THIS FALL

Placeholder
  28.09.2018

Visit some of the city’s best museums and attractions for free

The most exclusive ticket in town is . . . your library card. The Culture Pass program is free and unique to New York residents, or folks who work or go to school in the city. Book in advance and bring up to three guests -- tourists or otherwise -- to the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, The Frick, The Intrepid, and 30 other other cultural institutions, depending on availability.

Glamp by the ocean

Get a little outdoorsy without the snakes and spiders at Camp Rockaway, where you can “glamp” near plenty of bars, restaurants, and a golf course. This is a cut above traditional campgrounds, with fresh linens, phone charging stations, and full-fledged beds. Before retiring to your sturdy canvas tent, spend the day at Jacob Riis beach, take a yoga class on the ocean rocks, and feast at the local beach bazaar.

Make some cool crafts

Suburban visitors may be all about the BYOB wine and paint nights, but New Yorkers have one up on the poorly mimicked Van Gogh recreations no one really wants anyway. Book a session at Craft Jam where you can learn to make embroidered wall art, macrame plant hangers, and more on-trend crafts you’ll actually want to keep -- or be proud to gift.

Walk around Red Hook

Taking the ferry to Red Hook is an activity in itself -- with its close-enough views of the Statue of Liberty -- but the real treat is spending the better part of a day strolling through this tiny neighborhood to shop at the boutiques on Van Brunt Street, taste locally made wine at the Red Hook Winery, fill up on seafood and play a round of mini-golf at Brooklyn Crab, and catch a concert or exhibit at Pioneer Works.

Relax at a Korean day spa

Nothing takes the stress out of some mandatory tourist activities (they just had to see Times Square) like a day spent in saunas, whirlpools, and maybe a massage. Head to Spa Castle, where a day pass is $40 on weekdays and $50 on weekends, for unlimited access to three floors (and a rooftop) full of spa facilities from 8am-midnight.

Drink your weight in whiskey at The Flatiron Room

Boasting one of the most extensive whiskey selections on the East Coast, The Flatiron Room is THE place to get your brown booze on, one shot at a time. Finally learn the difference between whiskey and rye from educated bartenders and their guide-like menus, then dive in with one of the half-dozen tasting flights.

Drink beer at Bohemian Hall and Beer Garden

This beast of New York beer halls doesn’t just offer a great excuse to check out Astoria, it’s also a certified beer mecca that really celebrates its founders' Czech and Slovak heritage. Enjoy a huge variety of brews for $18 a pitcher, and be sure to order some authentic brats and kielbasa off the perpetually fired-up grill.

Take a Momofuku Milk Bar class

Unlock the secret to those crazy tasty Momofuku cakes with this user-friendly baking class based on Christina Tosi’s best-selling Milk Bar cookbook. Learn how to build the perfectly layered masterpiece and turn scraps into cake truffles, and then take home every delicious morsel you bake.

See a movie while you drink

If you’re sick of playing tour guide, check out the showtimes at Williamsburg’s Nitehawk Cinema, Bushwick’s Syndicated, or Downtown Brooklyn’s Alamo Drafthouse, all of which show both new releases and classic movies with chef-created menus (not just butter-sauce covered popcorn) and cocktails served while you watch.

Explore one of the city's food halls

NYC is home to more food halls and markets than ever before, meaning you can likely find one in whatever part of town you’re already in and give your guests a tour of all different kinds of cuisines. Be sure to check out Brooklyn's Dekalb Market Hall, featuring an off-shoot of beloved Jewish deli Katz's, plus other must-try vendors selling things like pierogi and cake push-pops.

Listen to live jazz

The city is packed with amazing venues to catch live jazz -- among them, Jazz Standard, Arthur’s Tavern, Minton's, and the Metropolitan Room. But the one you absolutely need to take your guests to is The Django. Nestled into Tribeca’s Roxy Hotel, its vaulted ceilings, vintage lighting, and excellent craft cocktails make for an experience that feels very old New York.

Check out the One World Trade Center Observatory

Crowds, lines, and selfie-sticks are to be expected when visiting One WTC, but these minor annoyances will be worth every minute spent atop the highest building in the Western Hemisphere. The observatory isn’t just a view, it’s an all-out experience -- one that’ll leave your guests (and even you, no matter how jaded you may be) practically speechless.

Catch a hockey game, wrestling match, or concert at Barclays Center

Did you know you can scope out the coolest arena in town for as little as $6? Pass on the season’s hottest ticket and learn to love pre-season hockey, or the pageantry of professional wrestling for a day.

Snack around Long Island City Flea and Food

Not only does this weekend food festival sport a Queens-brewed beer garden run out of a shipping container, it’s also got dozens of local vendors selling everything from crafts to antiques. Plus, it’s a frequent filming spot of the HGTV series Flea Market Flip and there’s nothing like a reality show in progress (or the opportunity to be on one) to get visitors excited about being in NYC.

Go beyond Broadway

Not for the faint of heart, Sleep No More is an immersive theatrical reimagining of Macbeth set in Chelsea’s McKittrick Hotel. You’ll don a paper mask and follow mysterious characters, explore vacant hotel rooms, and wander in and out of scenes. Stumble upon a woman shivering in a bathtub, a lovers’ quarrel, or a blood-soaked murder scene. It’s a zag from the typical Disneyfied Broadway show.


  28.09.2018

Go to drag brunch

We love brunch around here. The only socially acceptable time to eat cake for breakfast and get drunk before noon, it’s like church for New Yorkers. And when you want your chilaquiles with a side of razzle-dazzle, it’s drag brunch time, baby! The Broadway Brunch at Lips on East 56th Street is one part Great White Way, one part eggs any way, and a whole lotta fun.

Learn to surf in the Rockaways

Urban surfers shred here year-round, no matter the winter’s nor’easter count. Take a class with an expert or lounge on the beach and watch the masters from a distance. As long as you’ve made the trek, grab a few tacos from from Rockaway Beach Surf Club. If the beach bug really bites you, check out the rest of the shore.

Dumpling hop in downtown Flushing

People love associating New York with extravagant prices, so give your guests a much-appreciated shock when they bite into the best dumplings of their lives for only a couple bucks. Stop at White Bear for the wontons in chili oil ($5.50), Nan Xiang Xiao Long Bao for Shanghai shao mai ($3), Tianjin Handmade Dumplings for assorted meat and veggie dumplings (12 for $5) and sniff your way to the rest of the day’s cheap eats spots.

Grab a sandwich and people-watch in Tompkins Square Park

While Washington Square Park or Central Park may be at the top of the tourist itinerary, Tompkins is a lesser-tapped resource almost exclusively filled with neighbors walking through or picnicking in nice weather. Grab a bagel with rainbow sprinkle cream cheese at Tompkins Square Bagels, a spicy Asian-fusion sandwich at Sunny & Annie’s Deli, or some snacks from Ray’s Candy Store and pick a bench to watch East Villagers (and not infrequently, celebrities!).

Gallery hop in Chelsea (and drink free wine)

Fancy New York City art galleries have become pop culture tropes. Some rube makes a faux pas that ultimately teaches scenester snobs a lesson they never saw coming. But our art spaces are actually quite welcoming. The Chelsea galleries open their doors to the public on Thursdays, and, get this, often even serve wine. Take a drink every time you hear someone say, “My kid coulda done this.”

Drink on a rooftop

Tourists go gaga for those sweeping skyline views, and even real New Yorkers appreciate the genuine pleasure of a cold cocktail on a sunny rooftop. You might pay $15 for a so-so drink, but the Instagram will be priceless. Once you score a seat, it’ll be hard to give up, so drink slow or prepare to spend a king’s ransom.


  28.09.2018

Visit a non-traditional museum

Yo, Metropolitan Museum of Art. Imma let you finish, but this is one of the best trash galleries of all time. Same for this closet-sized collection of contemporary artifacts, this NYC treasure chest, and this ode to the American Gangster.

Get a little weird at House of Yes

If your companion is fixated on going out -- like out out -- Bushwick’s underground party venue turned bar/club/aerial performance space will hit the spot. This place has everything. There will be live music. There will be costumes. There will be trapeze artists. There will be glitter. Get your tickets in advance and costume yourself accordingly.  


  28.09.2018

Go rock climbing at Chelsea Piers

Chelsea Piers has lots of great activities, but the indoor rock wall is convenient, cheap, and seriously fun. Tough enough to be a challenge but still friendly for beginners, instructor-led climbing sessions are available every Wednesday and Thursday night for just $25 a person -- a small price to pay, considering you’d probably just be drinking otherwise.
