      Which are the best museums to go to?

        the Brooklyn Museum in Crown Heights. It’s in a great neighborhood too but the best part of Brooklyn is Brownsville.

    Visit filming spots for movies, eat some food, see Times Square once (then never go back because it's overrated) and then just walk around Lower Manhattan.

      No, don’t go to Lower Manhattan. Go to Upper Manhattan. See Harlem, East Harlem, Inwood, and Washington Heights. You could pretty much ignore the rest of Manhattan honestly

      No cap they film lots of things in Washington Heights now esp period pieces bc you can build sets there and the actual locations in Manhattan no longer look like that (The Gilded Age, The Deuce, etc)

      I think the Met better value for the range of art they have (including modern art). I think people go to Moma to see a few "famous" paintings. Also as anon says Brooklyn Museum is cool too.
      Others to check out:
      Isamu Noguchi museum.
      New Museum (contemporary art).
      Chelsea commercial galleries.

Get ready for popular eating spots to be crowded too. New York City is a crime ridden, old buildings everywhere, liberal diversity mess

        As a native New Yorker who's lived in NYC for 34 years, NYC is only great if you're a multi-millionaire who who lives and works in the clouds. It's actually terrible if your bank account isn't in the millions. Filth, fear and frustration is what awaits you if you aren't wealthy.

                I know New Yorkers love to get off on being from a tough, gritty place, but New York hasn't been that for decades. This actually completely sold me on tales of New York arrogance from my parents' generation, like refusing to believe other places in the US other than California had Ethiopian restaurants, the occasional practicing Buddhist, non collegiate rugby clubs, or a local opera.

                Attention and resources aren't infinite. When the DA is busy focusing all his attention on shaky politically-motivated attacks pandering to idiots like you, he's not dealing with the BLM crime surge that Democrat politics caused. It's not "whataboutism" when you're talking about mutually exclusive resource allocation.

      I’m also a Jerseyian and partially agree with the other jerseygay. I’ve been going to NY all my life and- like most cities- it’s become much worst post covid.

      >shared a tight subway elevator ride with a mentally ill geriatric woman frantically screaming on her phone
      >homeless nog smelled like he was dipped in piss cursing at sisters brother in law on the street
      >walking through macys on herald square and another deranged homeless pavement ape got too close for comfort by baby niece

      It’s like this everywhere. NY is still a world class city and you will have an amazing time, but don’t listen to rat Yorker gays like

      You just sound jealous because NYC is the greatest and most famous city in the world, whereas the entire state of New Jersey has nothing worth seeing or doing

    As anon says, Times Square is horrible.
    SoHo is full of tourists and chain store boutiques.
    Chelsea has the High Line, galleries and cafes but a bit hipster arty.

    Whenever I visit a new city or town I search for "organic coffee" and "vegetarian restaurant" in order to find interesting cafes and neighbourhoods.
    Check if any street markets etc are on during your stay (I went to a cool Mexican street fair on upper West side.

      Central Park, Prospect Park, Tompkins Square Park and then walk to Washington Square Park. Note Electric Ladyland studio as you do this walk.

      East River Park
      DUMBO
      Get bacon egg and cheeses at local bodegas with coffee for breakfast
      Dollar slice pizza for lunch. Look out for 2 Bros pizza, it’s the best for that.
      Go to some ethnic cheap place for dinner
      Book-Off, Red Caboose, and HQ Video are cool stores all within a block of each other in midtown. Go to forbidden planet.

        Lastly go to Coney Island for American “boardwalk” culture. You can take the subway all the way there for less than $3. Go to a triple AAA baseball game in staten island for American baseball culture on the cheap. Mets tix may be cheap too. The Staten Island ferry is free and let’s you see the Manhattan skyline from the water

        all of these look great! also thanks for the food tips. This might be a bit of a stretch and might be endangering my organs, but do you have any advice about finding accomodations? I already have place in mind but nothing set in stone, the only requisite I have its that they let me pay them with cash.

          I’m not familiar with lodging here but see if a friend of a friend has a place you can crash at so you can spend more money on activities and food. Hostels are always good cheap options. I’d spend more for a location that’s near a subway stop. The L, [4, 5, 6], F, and [A, C, E] subway lines will get you to good places.
          For nightlife go to Arlene’s Grocery for local bands and Home sweet Home for underground disco ball dancing. Both are in the lower east side. For big degenerate club experiences go to house of yes (get tix way in advance on their site) or go to Elsewhere, both in Brooklyn. Don’t accept drugs from strangers, do visit one of the hundreds of pot shops.

    The Ramble in Central Park is always a nice go-to. Especially if you're looking to escape the noise of the city for even just a few hours. Brilliant place to meditate as well.

      You can stay in new jersey and use transit to get into the city.

      I stayed near an amtrak station in Jersey about 40-50 minutes outside the city, amtrak (if booked in advance and at the right time of day) was $5-13 each way.

        Yeah, Airbnb in new brunswick or similar is gonna be $50-150/night. Even at the higher end you're still gonna be 50% cheaper than a hotel in NYC.
        Even a 4 star hotel in New Brunswick will run you less than $200/night.
