New York City see + do
While New York City has always offered an endless smorgasbord of entertainment and attractions, from the highbrow to the down-and-dirty, the city feels especially buoyant these days thanks to paradigm-shifting additions to the landscape such as the High Line, the New Museum, and Top of the Rock at Rockefeller Center. One of the enduring joys of New York, stuffed to the gills as it may be with master-of-the-universe types, is its sheer egalitarianism. World-class wonders such as Central Park, the Brooklyn Bridge, and the art galleries in Chelsea are free to explore. Feeling slightly more flush? Take in a performance at Carnegie Hall or the Metropolitan Opera, or make that most iconic of summer pilgrimages, out to a baseball game. And, of course, there are institutions like the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim, as well as smaller museums like the Neue Galerie, lining upper Fifth Avenue. Needless to say, whether you're living large or seeking cheap thrills, you're guaranteed to run out of time before you run out of things to do.
