I was just wondering moreso if there was any out of the way places/things to do off the beaten path that some people on here would know about that might not be so widely talked about.
Here are a few.
Food: Check out Smorgasburg in Williamsburg (Saturday).
Baseball: Yanks and Mets have minor league (Class A) teams in Staten Island and Brooklyn. S.I. Yankees are home this weekend. You take the S.I. ferry and it docks right next to the ballpark. Ferry ride, fun in and of itself, is free. And tickets, beer, hot dogs etc are much cheaper than the majors.
Museum: The Cloisters, a branch of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, is a cool, off the beaten path museum in upper Manhattan.
Beer: Bohemian Hall Beer Garden in Astoria Queens. NY's oldest beer garden. Nice place to spend an afternoon. An easy subway ride from Manhattan.
Whatever you wind up doing, have a great time in NYC.
