The toughest part of writing 100 Things to Do in New York City Before You Die was limiting it to just 100 things.
Because we all know that NYC is limitless for those who enjoy great food from around the world, great culture including theater and museums, great history, the great outdoors including parks and gardens, and great shopping that ranges from top designers to top designer fashions at steep discounts.
100 Things to Do in NYC Before You Die features:
Great food includes:
A restaurant in Staten Island where all the chefs are grandmothers, and the annual NYC Restaurant Week, , when some 400 top NYC restaurants offer prix fixe three-course meals for $26 at lunch and $42 at dinner, and more.
Great culture includes:
World-class museums from the Met and the Cloisters to the stories of immigrants who helped make NYC great, at the Tenement Museum, the Museum of Chinese in America, and, of course, at Ellis Island. And dancing under the stars at the annual Midsummer Night Swing in Lincoln Center.
Great history includes:
means the spot where George Washington took the oath of office as first US president, on Wall Street, and all the spots where Alexander Hamilton lived and worked before he became a Broadway musical star.
Great outdoors includes:
Kayaking on the Hudson and East rivers for free, and long guided walks with a group that focuses on NYC shorelines, as well as the annual NYC Marathon.
Great shopping includes:
Designer discount stores, secondhand and consignment shops and more.
