    You can't find something interesting and fun in NYC?!? Really? my suggestion, look harder. Lol! Whatever you're into, there is somthing in that city for you, maybe you're more of a small town guy, which is ok, but come on there's definitely interesting stuff to do!

    It really depends on what you consider "interesting" I suppose.

    Considering that there's:

    - Something like 40,000 bars and restaurants of every describable theme and scene
    - A couple hundred museums to learn about all manner of art and culture
    - At least a thousand venues for live music of every description
    - Broadway, off-Broadway, off-off-Broadway
    - An incredible diversity of architecture
    - A wide variety of green and natural spaces including the Highline, a park built on an old elevated rail line, and Central Park which is like a town unto itself
    - A mess of sports teams
    - A huge, vibrant gay community with all kinds of "scenes"

    I don't really know where you could go for more variety.

    I did the Broadway hike from Harlem to Battery Park in a day in 1998. I also visited New York in 1995 and 1978.
    Apart from boarding a ferry to The Statue of Liberty from Battery Park (profile pic), in Manhattan I enjoyed the varied scenery of Central Park (Turtle Pond is nice, at the foot of Belvedere Castle), walked along the elevated foot-way along Brooklyn Bridge and visited Brooklyn itself, a city in its own right, which was quite different from the skyline of Manhattan. In my day, the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center dominated the East River, over which the Brooklyn Bridge crossed.
    At the opposite end, at the Bronx, I spent the day at the Botanical Gardens, next to New York Zoo.
    The only museum I visited was the American Museum of Natural History, on the West side of Central Park, which if I recall, has its own subway stop. This Museum is not only the largest in America, but I believe, in the world.
    As for architecture, sure, in my opinion, New York is a forest of skyscrapers and therefore low on my list of beautiful cities. London, which is near to where I live, has many buildings with ornate columns capped with Corinthian and Roman capitals supporting Roman style pediments. In New York I recall only one building like this, the New York Stock Exchange near Battery Park.
    Europe has some of the most historic and beautiful cities in the world.

    Nothing to do in New York??

    If you don't like it then there's the door, though you'll be leaving a city with one of the highest concentrations of good looking gay an bi guys anywhere in the country.

    I think the East village, especially second avenue between 12th and 1st, has some of the best night life in the city. There three gay bars on second avenue below 4th street and above Houston. It's also the cheapest area to drink because of the extremely young crowd.

    West Village has an even better nightlife for gay guys, although I've yet to experience it.

    Meatpacking district is the best club neighborhood.

    Central park and the west village are great places to spend a few hours and eat.

    I also like walking around Chelsea because it's closer to downtown, where I live, but has a more midtown feel.

    I can't believe you are saying that.......

    Just the wonderful restaurants alone is worth the trip. So many cuisines. So little time to do them all. That is just one of the millions of wonderful experiences you could have.

    I live in Orlando where people spend insane amounts of money to see a whale jump through a hoop, be amazed by the "plastic" nature of fantasy worlds at theme parks and get heat stroke in July..

    New York City is MY theme park!!

    I was in NY during the summer. It was my first trip there and immediately feel in love with the city. It is simply amazing! Get out there and just explore, talk to people go and experience don't just sit your hotel room waiting for NY to come to you.

    NY I will be back soon and I can't wait. icon_twisted.gif
