New York City is more than a destination to check off your bucket list.
It’s The Big Apple, The City That Never Sleeps, and for many New Yorkers — the center of the world.
Thanks to it’s location down under the Manhattan Bridge overpass (hence, the name), its proximity to the Brooklyn Bridge, and up-close views of downtown Manhattan, DUMBO is the perfect place for a group picture with your coworkers that will instantly add some street cred to your reputation.
For families: Times Square offers an overload of senses from quintessential New York smells like roasted chestnuts to the iconic flashing lights that define the area.
WHERE TO DINE For couples: La Vara is close enough to the famous River Cafe in Brooklyn that it can get overlooked by travelers in search of a romantic meal that is also excellent.
For business travelers: The Skylark in Midtown Manhattan is perched high above Times Square and offers jaw-dropping floor-to-ceiling views of the city in all its glittering glory.
Business colleagues will appreciate the swanky details like velvet couches and an extensive cocktail list while they take in the panoramic views.
Moo Burger in family-centric Cobble Hill, Brooklyn, offers both of these in spades, as families gather round communal tables to order lamb burgers, oversized hot dogs and sweet potato fries.
A little crying, disputes over who gets the red crayon, and frequent trips to the potty are all commonplace at this neighborhood gem.
