So, we're heading over to New York in late November and it's my first time to the states! I was just wondering if there's any super cool places to eat, things to see, secret little shops or anything that's not on any website or on the Internet to make it worth our while when we're over.
We're over for 5 nights and doing the usual stuffs!
Any ideas/opinions welcome
so many threads for nyc
it's kinda boring here, try Jersey for some real fun...
There's nothing secret about NYC and everything is on the web. Everything, one way or another. Maybe not on tourist / travel sites, but it's out there.
- that's true of everything though, not just nyc ... really not helpfulmonospaced
- meh... ehhh, you're right.drake-von-drake
- Vague... But um... Thanks!cruddlebub

*NOTE there will always be a wait so don't go when starving, have some drinks while you wait or walk around
None of the good places are on the web.
- they are all on the web, it's called MARKETING and MAKING MONEY. Look into it.drake-von-drake
- Drake obviously doesn't know any of the good places.nb
- you've probably never even been to NYC for longer than a weekend, go back to Ottawa (yeah, there's a fucking party)!drake-von-drake
- ladies, can you not turn this thread into the normal drake shitting on everything while everyone slips in it?monospaced
- DRAKE STARTED ITnb
- yeah, and you're slipping in it ;)monospaced
- Girl, you know it's true!drake-von-drake
- whats the real beef with D-V-D?cruddlebub
- The good place is the web.see_thru
@nb this is what I'm saying! The cool little places! The hideyholes! Im meeting a buddy who lives in New Jersey for dinner one of the nights, just didn't want to get back and people be saying "oh you should of seen this/gone there/eaten at that place"
I can start to make a list of some more local things for you, but in the meantime my main suggestion would be to start with avoiding Times Square and Penn Station areas altogether. They are crappy tourist traps, and Times Square is only worth gawking at for 2 minutes unless you must go through it for a Broadway show.
For food and sights, are you looking for more upscale or romantic things since it's your honeymoon, or are you looking for the spicy hole-in-the-wall noodle shops and hot dog joints with speakeasy in the back?
Well all the places I mention are on the web but whatever, trying to help.
But I would look into some restaurants and make reservations. There's a million Michelin/James Beard places here.
*Stuffy & pricy but the food was phenomenal
I really liked Traif too.
Here's my advice.
Try leaving Manhattan. Manhattan can be fun, Lower East Side is my fav. But most ppl who actually live here call Manhattan "Work Island" If you are looking for the "hipster" bars, clubs, or restaurants: Check out.
Also if you are near 56th street. Theres a cool little burger joint in the lobby of a fancy hotel called "Burger Joint" http://www.burgerjointny.com/56t…
Lastly check out the museums!
Any advice is appreciated, and not really high dining or majorly romantic! Some proper dirty, fatty, bbq grub! Anything that tastes of America! Haha the lady is talking about doing the standard things, like Statue of Liberty, museums, Empire State... The standard touristy things! Doesn't need to be "hipster" just things we shouldn't miss, were cool and easy going and not afraid of trying new things!
She wants to take a helicopter ride also
- don't even bother with statue of liberty or empire state, in my opinion... you get better views from a helicopter of both I'd say :)monospaced
- I live 2 blocks from the Empire State and I've never even been up to the top. :/monospaced
- ^ that's fairly typical though ah haha ha. I lived in NYC for 5 years and never want to either. LOLdrake-von-drake
- anytime, I hear "the lady" I think... ok, this dude is gonna be dragged around for a bit. no offense... ;-)drake-von-drake
- True! She drags me here and there! And I don't mind! As long as I can do somethings I want to docruddlebub
- Empire States building- is sort of cool after 1 am- It's open till 2am- no lines, no screaming kids. Just girls looking for Tom Hanks.BH26
- ^^ good attitude, you'll survive. Mix in a beer or two even at the dumb shit places. Ha!drake-von-drake
I used to live in Queens (Astoria) and UES, but remember very little from those days, since NYC most oftenly changes.
If you're into "secret bars" (but they're really not secretive): https://www.thrillist.com/drink/…
Maybe that's your style?
- Why does everything you write get a downvote! Lol thanks, I'll check those sites outcruddlebub
- ha ha... they hate me for political reasons and nature of my posts. I don't care. QBN is just pure fun to me. I don't take it seriously.drake-von-drake
- You rogue you!cruddlebub
- still insisting it's the content of your posts, when people have told you repeatedly it's notmonospaced
You can't leave NYC without a proper pastrami sandwich. Of course there's Katz deli where you can't go wrong, but I prefer one of the city's Jewish delis. Check out 2nd Avenue deli to split a sandwich and an order of fries. http://www.2ndavedeli.com
One morning, get a bagel. My favorite is from Ess-a-bagel, but H&H is also good. http://www.ess-a-bagel.com
On Friday or Saturday mornings it's nice to walk through Union Square and browse the farmer's market before it gets too crowded.
There's a little spot near the South Street Seaport called Stone Street that's great for an outdoor brew and snack outdoors. It's not crowded with tourists, and it's a great place to stop if you visit the World Trade Center, which I recommend.
- those are good calls, shit forgot about all of thatdrake-von-drake
- We're staying somewhere called the de Vinci I think, the wife is mega organised and I just kind of go with the flow, but I'd like to plan some things too!cruddlebub
