New York City Tourism: Best of New York City
Come for the big dreams and dazzling lights, stay for the local haunts and the world’s best pizza
The tallest buildings, biggest museums, and best pizza—NYC is a city of superlatives, and it lives up to every one of them. From the dazzling spectacle of Broadway to MoMA’s world-class galleries, the boutiques of SoHo, and the array of restaurants offering cuisines from every corner of the world, there’s a different New York to discover every time you visit. Beyond those iconic landmarks, though, New York’s secret side awaits. You’re likely to stumble upon indie vintage shops and locals-only brunch spots even on the shortest of strolls. And when the crowds and noise are too much to take, just look up—that skyline will remind you why you came in the first place.

A memorable weekend for two
My top date spots collected over a lifetime in NYC — a mix of special places to share with someone you love or just, like a lot.
Raja H, New York City, NY
- Devocion95Regarded by some as having the most expensive coffee in the city, but I think of it more as a $8 place to sit. Worth it: there's a gorgeous skylight pouring in abundant sunshine, a living green wall, and rich leather sofas to fall into. Curl up with a book while studying the people of the new Williamsburg around you.
- Tomi Jazz53You can be forgiven for walking past Tomi, an underground, Japanese-vibe jazz bar. There's a spirit of timelessness in this basement bar. Reserve a table and unwind over a few bottles of plum wine (umeshu). Let the music take you to a simpler world, even if just for a few hours.
- Brooklyn Academy of Music212BAM somehow keeps the vibe of a neighborhood theater while putting on high-value productions in a gorgeous building. To plan a fun night out, I'll skim their calendar for any talks, dance performances, or plays that are scheduled. Bonus points if you eat at Bedouin Tent nearby before your show.
- St. Mazie25St. Mazie has all the trappings of a romantic bar, but none of the clichéd stuffiness. It's dark, intimate, and bursts with energy on live music nights. Swing dancing from your neighbors may break out at any moment, adding another layer of entertainment. Reserve a table in advance and get cozy.
- Yemen Cafe and Restaurant100Come for the amazing Yemeni food, stay for the casual, unpretentious vibe made possible by the friendly locals. While you and your partner chat away, sharing large plates of lamb haneeth and chicken zorbian, servers will laying down endless, warm flatbreads. That tea everyone's drinking, it's free (and self-serve).
- Gantry Plaza State Park466There's no better place to enjoy the lights of the city than from the water. This new park feels like it sits in the middle of the river, with the glass towers of Midtown shooting into the sky above. Although far and out of the way, it's worth a cab ride over just before dark to watch the Empire State Building do its light show. Take the ferry home afterward.
- Buvette Gastrotheque929It's hard to find a restaurant with as much charm-per-square foot as Buvette. I fell in love with the white marble bar when aimlessly wandering the West Village. Expect small plates and tight seating, and remember you're here for the vibe. (If you're like me, you'll probably get a slice at Joe's Pizza afterward w/ your sweetheart if you're still hungry).
- Conservatory Garden384The Conservatory Gardens don't feel like the rest of Central Park. If you're already this far north, wander through the massive wrought-iron gate (from in Paris, 1894) and walk through the three gardens: Italian, English-style, and French. See if you can guess them correctly and note what makes each unique.
