One of New York's best venues for up and coming new musicians. You can show up here any night of the week and hear something wonderful; there are three different stages, so there's always something for everyone. The most mellow of the music scene venues; go for chill jams in a relaxed setting. You might even see your beloved hosts up on stage!

Fun, fun, upper west side neighborhood hangout spot. Board games to play with, and on a strip of several great bars. A different vibe from downtown or midtown. Worth a visit. Try the fried pickles and kentucky mules.

This one-of-a-kind neighborhood watering hole is aptly named--the whole bar is about the size of our living room, and every bit as comfy. Great bartenders, delicious house-made sangria (garnished with a toy shark, because why not?) exceptional playlists and a uniquely welcoming community vibe make this gem a must for anyone wanting an authentic "locals-only" experience.

Duels have been fought over where to find the best pizza in New York--but if you're looking for the best in the neighborhood, look no further. If you're a fan of brick-oven style pizza, this place is can't-miss. (If you get overwhelmed by the menu, you can't go wrong with the "Killer Bee")

Parks & Nature

Lovely pier juts out into the Hudson River; watch the ships come into the harbor, see live music in the Thursday night summer concert series, enjoy the dog park and run through the sprinkler fountain on hot days. There's also an amazing place called Float The Apple where you can take kayak tours all around Manhattan!

Everyone knows it, and there's a reason. An extraordinary collection of extraordinary collections. We will go in here on a rainy day still just for a look at our favorites and to be in a space with such a sheer volume of art. And its donation-based. Not like MoMa which hurts your wallet.

If you don't go see a Broadway show while you are here you are missing out. TKTS sells half price tickets the day of the show, so you don't even have to be a good planner. Just roll up to the kiosk at noon, pick out a show and roll the dice. You won't regret this iconic experience.

An adorable boutique full of adorably-curated stuff. They always have a little discount on great candles, and a fun selection of hilarious socks. Great for a souvenir that isn't painfully kitschy.
