Are you your squad’s resident selfie taker? Do your brunch photos crush on Instagram? Do you find your subway serenity by scrolling through all the amazing shots that you’ve taken of New York? Well listen up, then! We’re on the hunt for some gorgeous words and pictures about your favorite neighborhood haunts. We want your beautiful photos and lyrical descriptions of the local places you love—restaurants, bars, stores, parks, museums—anywhere in NYC that you think is special and want to share.

To take part in the competition, you’ll need to write a review and submit it (with a photo attached) to our site. You can submit as many as you like, and you can find some useful tips on how to write a Time Out review here.

We’ll feature the best of the best online (and in print!), so you may actually be able to say you’re famous on the internet and really mean it. We’ll also pick one overall winner, who’ll receive a $200 restaurant voucher at one of Time Out New York’s favorite restaurants. (Start figuring out who you want to invite—or hoard all that food and drink for yourself, we won’t judge.)

The deadline for entries is September 1, 2016. Winners will be chosen by our editorial team, so get snapping (and writing) and try to impress the pants off us. (And please remember to have a read of our terms and conditions.) Good luck—may the best Annie Leibowitz in training win!




In the instructions it says to write and submit a photo on the site but it doesn't specify how to do so. I am not sure where to upload. Can you please specify how to do this? Thank you in advance.

If you haven't yet discovered the experience that is NYC football club's games at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, you really are missing out. This newly formed team comprising of some of New York's homegrown soccer players - namely Tommy McNamara, as well as iconic players from around the world including Frank Lampard (who played for Chelsea) and Andrea Pirlo (who played for Juventus amongst others).

The whole experience is fast-paced, fun, team-spirited and an absolute spectacle; one really not to be missed. Picture the scene; predominantly gorgeous weather in Yankee Stadium surrounded by a plethora of eating kiosks and stands, standing with fellow NYCFC supporters for what is usually 90 minutes of nerves, tension and, of course joy when we score! This is a team which has really worked hard and are improving with every game. The club are really in touch with their fan base. 

If you sign up to become a season ticket holder, they hold 'open practices' that you can use your fan points for. Here, you not only watch your team practice, but you actually get to meet and take photographs with them! On meeting them recently, they were personable and more than happy to pose for photos with their fans. You really can't ask for more than that.

Not being a fan of most sports, this has really hit the spot for me and is such a fabulous experience for people of all ages and is perfect for some precious family time in this busy world we all inhabit.This is exhilarating down time. 

If you don't already know about NYCFC I would seriously attend one of their few remaining matches and join the hype. If you're looking for a fun, action-packed afternoon/evening out, you have just found your destination. Go NYCFC!
