To not make it boring or dull or repetitive or whatever, I tried to go round other places. That kind that won't appear on the top 10 list, but that they are still pretty awesome. That kind that are not fulfilled by hundreds of tourists whereas for expert locals. Here are my five favorite places to do some unknown activity in the famous city.
1- The International Center of Photography
In the heart of the city (you've probably walked through and have never realized is there) is foundthe International Center of Photography. This place will always delight you with shocking images from their temporary switching exhibitions. It is definitely where to have a good couple hours spent.
Where: 1133 Avenue of the Americas at 43rd Street.
When: Tuesday–Thursday/ 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM; Friday/ 10:00 AM to 8:00 PM; Saturday–Sunday/ 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM. Closed on Mondays and major holidays.
How Much: General admission is 14$, students and seniors 10$ and children or members free. Fridays evening is voluntary contribution.
I am not sure right now if I can still call it a non-famous place. It's not a secret anymore, and it's getting more and more crowded. The 1.45-miles-long old New York's railway was redesigned into a new fashion park. It had been in disuse since 1980. Nowadays, having been open for already five years, the High Line is a place to enjoy a little walk with your family, go running accompanied or by yourself or have an ice cream with your friends. You can walk along with the city while smelling the fresh air of the trees. I promise, its pleasantly beautiful and you will absolutely love it. A hundred-one per cent sure.
Where: from Gansevoort Street to West 34th Street on Manhattan's West Side with several open entrances along the way.
When: 7:00 AM to 11:00 PM on summer, 7:00 AM to 10:00 PM on spring or fall and 7:00 AM to 7:00 PM on winter.
How Much: free! (unless you're craving for an ice cream)
It's out of the center, but that never meant it's out of touch. With more than 40 different species, including some big ones like snow leopards, polar beer and even a wonderful butterfly garden. The Bronx Zoo has something different from other zoos. Just the feeling of being in a savannah or a woodland or a plain in the middle of such a city as New York is so bittersweet but incredible at the same time.
Where: 2300 Southern Boulevard, Bronx
When: Monday - Fridays/ 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM; Weekends and Holidays/ 10:00 AM to 5:30.
How Much: Adult 16,95$, Senior 14,95$, Child 12,95$.
Situated at the very end of the famous island, the Battery Park is a gorgeous place to have a rest. You go there and enjoy yourself. Walking along the coast, seeing the Liberty State or watching the various boats sail in Hudson River are some of the many different things you'll be able to do at this hidden New York spot.
Where: Southern tip of Manhattan Island (just keep going down)
When: 24/7 all around the year.
How Much: free!
If you ever thought how to combine children, fun and mathematics, the MoMath is what you were looking for. An extremely interactive and entertaining museum (and even not only for kids) where you will be able to play, have fun, discover and learn at the same time. It really is a cool place. Forget avout boring maths. Because it is a lie.
Where: 11 East 26th Street.
When: Seven days a week,10:00 AM to 5:00 PM, 364 days a year (do not go on Thanksgiving).
