Going to Manhattan for 5 nights Anonymous 06/04/14(Wed)14:25 UTC+1 No.857381 Report

Afternoon /trv/,

I'm flying to NYC tomorrow for 5 nights with my girlfriend and my parents. Just wondering:

1. Any awesome places I should check out while I'm there? I went last year and done all the 'tourist stuff', so i'm not concerned about seeing the Statue of Liberty or anything like that. Could anyone suggest some great restaurants, bars, stores, or cool shit that tourists usually miss out on.
I'm looking for the best Manhattanite experience here!


2. I'm 22 years old but my gf is only 19. Will there be a problem with her getting served at bars or do they not regulate it much?

Thanks a lot!

Besides museums and Broadway, most of the fun is south of 14th street.

You could even *gasp* take the subway to an outer borough one day.

Yeah I'd be game for that. Do you recommend any borough in specific?

Are you sure you're "done" with the tourist stuff? I mean, I wouldn't bother with Times Square or whatever, but you could spend a whole day in the Met, for example (and it'd be worth your while if you like Museums).

There's good cheap food in the East Village. A ton of bars too. McSorley's is kinda cheesy/touristy but in a good way.

West Village is more upscale, but there's a bunch of good stuff over there too. It's nice roam around all that nonsense.

Williamsburg is pretty tourist friendly and easy to get to. Take the L to Bedford and you'll be in the the main drag.

There's cool shit further out too (Flushing comes to mind), but for 5 nights, there's likely enough to keep you occupied in Manhattan.

Central Park. Look up statues in there.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art (awesome for me) MOMA, Guggenheim
Museum of Natural History (for me it sucks but its personal preference). There's even a museum for NYC history, which is just OK. Check out Bryant Park and NYPL in there. The library has an awesome building, well prepared for tourists to check it out (including temporary exhibitions).

Harlem - the golden ages. Just stay on your game if your a noob.
For jazz, I'd go to Time Warner Building, there's Jazz at Lincoln Center. Also, Lincoln Center: opera, ballet, philharmonic, theater..

Bars, bars, bars... And food. From street meat to fine dining - you're covered.
And there are sooooo many resources on the internet to use and prepare. Do your research, otherwise you're going to be lost like most tourists in the city. Roaming around like a zombie and bumping into people by accident.
