The Complete NYC Exploration Guide
A Premier I.V. Doc Location
New York is the so-much-to-see, so-little-time capital of the world. If you only have a few days, or need a "where do I even start?" nudge, here are a few juicy slices of the Apple to give you a well-rounded sampling of the city's offerings. Should you incur a nasty bug or hangover, or become dehydrated or depleted, know that NYC is an I.V. Doc hub. We even have a walk-in lounge!
Rockefeller Center & St. Pat's
Make your way to Midtown to take in all the icons at the city's heart: Rockefeller Center National Historic Landmark, NBC Studios, Radio City Music Hall, the Ice Skating Rink, Rock Observation Deck, Rainbow Room, St. Patrick's Cathedral, Saks Fifth Avenue, the famous bronze Atlas sculpture, and much more.
Logging 42 million visits a year, Central Park earns its distinction as the world’s greatest urban sanctuary. More than a landscape architectural masterpiece, it offers virtually every activity under the sun, from ice skating in winter to row-boating in summer, plus concerts, outdoor theater, swimming, cycling, picnicking, running, roller blading, dancing… But sometimes, just strolling and people watching is the most fun of all!
The High Line
In a few short years, this ingenious conversion of abandoned elevated railroad tracks into a 1.45-mile botanical promenade has become a world-class attraction. So popular, you can avoid crowds by coming earlier in the day or later in the evening. Don’t forget the myriad galleries and trendy eateries of the adjacent Chelsea neighborhood.
Bars, Bites & Buys
Once a bohemian and artist enclave, Soho is now mainstream chic, with designer boutiques, upscale chains, high-end galleries, and toney restaurants occupying the former factory buildings with cast-iron facades and spacious lofts. For more ethnic fare, nearby Little Italy and Chinatown beg to be explored, too.
East & West Villages
Experience twenty-something exuberance in the bars, clubs and restaurants of the East Village and Alphabet City. For a slightly more subdued scene, the West Village’s historic residences and taverns—launching pads for a litany of famous artists, writers and musicians—are legend. In between is the always engaging Washington Square Park.
Arts & Culture
A pleasant one-mile stroll along Fifth Avenue by Central Park from 84th to 104th Streets can yield a treasure trove of world-class museums, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Guggenheim Museum, Cooper-Hewitt National Museum of Design, Museum of the City of New York, El Museo del Barrio, and more. Take your pick!
There's always an abundance of hit shows on tap along the Great White Way. At the TKTS booth in Times Square you can get same-day tickets up to 50% off. At TodayTix.com, purchase tickets last-minute or months in advance at "amazing discount deals". At any rate, seeing a top-tier Broadway show is an unforgettable NY experience!
