6 Ways to Live Like a Full-Blooded New Yorker
Ask anyone from New York what it’s like to live in the big city, and they’ll tell you about how there are people everywhere, buildings as high as the sky, and things to do at any given time.
Want to see a movie? A major release, limited-run, indie or foreign film? There will be something showing to suit your taste in the Big Apple. Want to see a concert? Well, a band you really like is probably playing in the city this week.
Last year, New York City welcomed a record 65.2 million visitors. Living in the Big Apple is a dream for most people outside of NYC. Luckily, it’s so easy to just pack your bag, head to the city, and live like a local. Here are six of the ways you can live like a full-blooded New Yorker today:
2. Visit the New York Farms
Locals know all the quirky places to go, right? Not really. But it’s true that they’re fed up with tourists crowding around the Empire State Building. Popular among New Yorkers nowadays are the city’s rooftop farms. Brooklyn Grange and Gallow Green are just two of the most popular farms in the city. Some turn into rooftop bars in the evening where you can enjoy a glass of wine while surrounded by the luscious greens that these truly unique farms provide visitors.
3. Shop at the Smorgasburg
4. Stay in the Bronx
5. Eat at Shake Shack
6. Drink at Raines Law Room
While ‘having too much to drink’ isn’t really a classic NYC personality trait, residents usually come together to mingle at cocktail bars. Raines Law Room is one of the most popular speakeasies for locals. One of the OG bars in NYC, Raines has maintained its loyal clientele so the wait won’t be long. Here you can meet locals who will love to show you around, for sure.
