As the famous T-shirt logo says “I Heart New York”! Whats there not to like – museums, art, fashion, theater, Broadway, food, and an absolutely pulsating nightlife. We managed to spend a week in New York this summer with friends and family. Having been to New York several times in the past, we had all the touristy/top 10 things/must sees covered and therefore looked for alternative ways to enjoy the city. Below is the list of things we did – most of these places can be found in guidebooks I think but were not swarmed with people and would allow one to explore in leisure.
