    Technically the Museum is free too. They just ask for a "suggested donation" and certain exhibits you have to pay for.

    Edit: @illphillip Beat me to it


    They tell you but sometimes they trick outta town people.

    The admission is a donation so don't feel obligated to spend the $30 or whatever it is. You can give them $5 if you want to. Doesn't include special shows

    Just avoid eating at restaurants around that area. Food in Hell's Kitchen, Times Square, etc is mediocre and overpriced. Also, don't believe the hype about Shake Shack and don't think just because there's a hundred people lined up that it's actually good. Another overpriced mediocre place. For how much you pay there you can get a 100x better meal outside of the tourist traps

    This might be a touristy suggestion, but check out the Press Lounge, which shouldn't be too far of a walk from where you're at. Good cocktails and a great view of the city. The girls my friend and I took loved it there

    There's also a really good dim sum spot in Chinatown if you're down to make a 25 min journey. I forgot the name, but local NYCers might be able to help out here; I'm sure it's well known cause the walls are plastered with pictures of celebrities eating there and posing with the staff. Service was awful but the food was good and cheap :lol:

    Mets games are likely going to get rained out with Joaquin passing through. The weather is going to stink for the next few days so buy an umbrella.
    If you're into sneakers, check out the Sneaker Culture exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum. The exhibit ends on the 4th. While you're in Brooklyn, check out the historic Louis H Pink Houses. Some of the finest post war architecture in the city. Linden's Pizza and Ribs is some of the best food you'll eat while here.
    Stay away from Times Square. It is a headache and not worth the hassle. The restaurants there are what you would have in your city.
