New York City Feelings

I would give the greatest sunset in the world for one sight of New York's skyline


Walk across the Brooklyn Bridge – This bridge is definitely worth admiring in person; it’s a gorgeous piece of engineering.
Catch a free concert at Gantry Plaza in Long Island City – Their summer concert series, known as Live at the Gantries, features local musicians on Tuesday nights in the summer. The setting is stunning with a view of the East River and Manhattan behind the stage, and of course there’s the free part.

Catch a movie night at Bryant Park – Movies play every Monday evening at 5pm at Bryant Park in Midtown as part of HBO’s Summer Film Festival; it begins in June and runs through August.

People watch at Washington Square Park – Protests, musical performances, theatrical performances, vendors, pigeon man–Washington Square Park has it all. And of course, the gorgeous Washington Arch.

Visit the 9/11 Memorial – The memorial fountains are open to the public daily from 7:30am to 9pm.

Rub some bull testicles – See Wall Street and give the ol’ Charging Bull (or the Wall Street Bull) some love. It’s for good luck, I swear!

Walk/run/sunbathe/nap/play frisbee/people watch in Central Park – A day spent in Central Park is never a day wasted. Spend it as you please, you really can’t go wrong!

Learn to Salsa on the Hudson – Hudson River Park holds events all year long, many of them free! This summer it was free salsa on Tuesday nights.

Marvel at the impressive architecture around Madison Square Park – The Flatiron Building, the Empire State Building, Metlife Tower, and more! Architecture aside, there’s always plenty to do and see in this park, too. My last visit included a Pakistani Independence Day concert and celebration!

Visit the city’s museums on free admission days – Admission to the MoMA is free on Fridays from 4-8pm; check websites and get on mailing lists so you can take advantage of these offers.

Cruise the beautiful High Line – This historic freight line turned public park is a beautiful (and traffic-free) way to wander from Gansevoort Street in the Meatpacking district all the way up to West 34th Street while admiring Manhattan from a new vantage point.

Hit Long Island City’s Saturday flea market – Even if you don’t buy anything, there’s bound to be plenty to see.
