How To Explore New York City Like A Local Versus A Tourist

There are plenty of guides about New York City and all the suggested attractions that are fit for tourists. However, there’s one problem with those guides— they don’t actually showcase the real New York City.

If you want to see New York City like a true New Yorker, here’s a guide for you to explore the city.

Date Night

Forget the Broadway show and head to Barcade in Brooklyn for a date night you will never forget.  Barcade is a bar specializing in craft beer, while doubling as an arcade. On the weekend this is the ultimate date night location for residents in the Williamsburg area.

Skip the Statue of Liberty and take the 6 train to Pelham Parkway and make your way to City Island. You can walk the entire City Island in less than an hour. While strolling, listen to live music in the street and be sure to stop at Johnny’s for fresh seafood and a stiff drink!

Up, Up & Away

Were you thinking of visiting the observation deck at the Empire State Building? Forget about it.

Instead, head to Roosevelt Island to experience the Roosevelt Island Tram as you ride over the East River and take in the entire NYC skyline.

Time To Relax

New York can be overwhelming. From learning the subway, moving at a fast pace and finding out why it’s truly called the “city that never sleeps.”

When you need to unwind, head to Bathhouse for two-hours of relaxation. Their two-hour day pass includes access to three pools (cold plunge, hot pool, and a thermo neutral pool), a steam room, dry sauna, tropical sauna, and heated marble slabs.
