May 2022: Looking for the best things to do in NYC? Things are back in business these days. Our iconic museums, big attractions, and favorite restaurants are back (with a few new rules, of course), but the city's cultural life has been reborn. Summer is nearing and life is bursting forth in our beloved city.
From its art museums (The Met and Frick Madison) to its attractions (The Bronx Zoo and sunrises from the Empire State Building), New York City is the best city in the world. Its dining and drinking scenes, which are undergoing major changes, are still unbeatable and boast killer bars (Dante), restaurants (Lilia) and offering crazy new inventions (like a rainbow crepe cake). Every day, we're discovering something new and wonderful about our city, whether it's one of the best cozy spots, some incredible views, must-see art, or hidden-gem stores. Take this spring to do some incredibly fun things in NYC.
Consider below your NYC Bible.
