Moishendlishus saidHey fellas,
So I'm going to NYC on June 27th through July 4. I've never been. Anyone got any recommendations for sites sounds and foods that aren't all touristy? What are your favorite haunts in the city that an out of town visitor should check out?
You doing any shows in NYC? Where?
I had posted this on another query of the same nature.
That depends on the purpose of trip:
Generic fun: Day time stuff: Shopping and museums. Hit Soho area for shopping, MOMA in Midtown, Guggenheim on the upper Eastside and a few blocks away the MET. http://www.nycgo.com/
Official tourism site
Night Time: you can get discounted theatre tickets at the TKTS booth on 47th Street in Times Square area. http://www.tdf.org/web/TKTSToday/
Or club/bar scene Late Night. Parties usually get hot after 12AM. Most Drag shows start 11PM or Midnight a few exceptions some more mature drag mommas perform earlier. LOL. You should see a Peppermint Show or Sherry Vine Show. They perform at the popular bars in HK like Industry
. Both on the same street opposite each other. http://www.xlnightclub.com/http://www.splashbar.com/http://www.odysseymagazine.net/ny/ny.htmlhttp://www.nextmagazine.com/event_listhttp://www.chrisryannyc.com/http://www.cityallianceproductions.com/http://www.facebook.com/groups/nycgaynightlife/http://www.facebook.com/groups/319713216690/
I like the Cloisters museum uptown http://www.metmuseum.org/visit/visit-the-cloisters/
and after you can go to a nice Dominican Restaurant not to far called "La Casa Del Mofongo
" on St Nicolas Ave. If you like latino food (non-Mexican) then you won't go wrong there. Very popular with the neighborhood locals. Always crowded!
