Nowadays, it's hard to choose what the best things to do in NYC are, but for those looking to get out, the city has plenty to offer, even as things are a bit precarious. Finally, our iconic museums, big attractions, and favorite restaurants are back (with new rules, of course). Make sure to check back as we will be updating this list more often than we did prior to lockdown to reflect New York City as it reopens.
While we have a new reality to face in NYC, we still have the iconic mainstays that have made it the best city in the world, from its art museums (The Met and MoMA) to its attractions (The Bronx Zoo and the High Line). The dining and drinking scenes, which are undergoing major changes, are still unbeatable and boast killer bars (McSorley's) and restaurants (Gertie). Every day, we're discovering something new and wonderful about our city, whether its one of the best parks, outdoor concerts, incredible views, must-see art, or hidden-gem stores.
Consider the below your NYC Bible.
