Most visitors would agree that NYC is among the most stunning and captivating cities in the world. This is a city that has countless historic landmarks, and if you are in mood for some fun, we promise that you will find more options than the time in hand. In this post, we are discussing a few interesting ideas to explore life and people in NYC.
Go for a Broadway show
No matter what others say, do attend a Broadway show to know about the passion that people share about entertainment. Tickets for some of the best shows are sold months in advance, and if you are lucky, you can watch a show featuring Hollywood celebs. Same-day show tickets can be found at a discount at the TKTS booth in Times Square.
Experience jazz like never before
New Yorkers have a thing about jazz, and you will find more clubs and places for the genre here than anywhere else. We strongly recommend that you plan a dinner and a show together at one of the jazz clubs. Many clubs also have special concerts and shows, which are worth considering, more so as some of the most-loved contemporary artists perform for these events.
Try great food at Queens Night Market
Queens Night Market is a great place for foodies, where you can try new dishes and items from odd 80 countries. From Indian food to Mediterranean fare, there is something for everyone, besides the obvious long list of burgers, pizzas and cheeseburgers that NYC is known for. This is an open air Bazaar that opens at 5 pm every Saturday all the way to midnight.
Walk the Brooklyn Bridge
If you are looking for free things to do in NYC, Brooklyn Bridge is where you should head. This iconic bridge is so romantic by the sunset and is a great place to mingle with the crowd. It is also a wise idea to explore and stroll in the Brooklyn Bridge Park. In case you have the time, we strongly recommend that you make time in the morning, when you can see the locals rushing for their daily lives with not too many tourists around.
Take the Staten Island Ferry
From Battery Park, you can take the Staten Island Ferry that takes people from Manhattan to Staten Island, and the ride is free! You can also grab a drink along the way, and views of Statue of Liberty on the ride is stunning. The round trip takes an hour.
Make your wish list and start exploring!
