Main St, Roosevelt Island, NY 10044, USA
For panoramic views of the entire city—for the price of a subway ride—take the Roosevelt Island Tram. As the suspended car runs parallel to the bridge, spanning the gap between Manhattan and Roosevelt Island, you'll have unparalleled vistas of the...
210 10th Ave, New York, NY 10011, USA
For much of its history, the western edges of Manhattan neighborhoods like the West Village and Chelsea consisted of small manufacturing buildings and warehouses that served the piers on the Hudson River. Over time, those factories were replaced...
1071 5th Ave, New York, NY 10128, USA
This spiraling white concrete structure, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, is one of the most iconic buildings in NYC, if not in all of the USA. This is one museum where the building itself is as interesting as the exhibition inside. First check out...
2245 Broadway, New York, NY 10024, USA
Every New Yorker knows Zabar's, an Upper West Side institution. A specialty food market founded in the 1930s by Louis and Lillian Zabar, today's store is nearly a block long and serves 35,000 customers weekly. Bagels, lox, smoked fish, gourmet...
99 Margaret Corbin Dr, New York, NY 10040, USA
The Cloisters, a museum devoted to medieval art and architecture, is a delightful respite from the hustle and bustle of NYC. This tranquil treasure is definitely worth a half day (or more) trip on your next visit. A branch of the Metropolitan...
104 Walnut St, Montclair, NJ 07042, USA
Mac Attack serves truffled mac and cheese, manchego and apple grilled cheese, and just about everything in between (there's even a dessert). Open until 3 a.m. on Saturday, it's also the perfect stop for late-night munchies.

Culturally diverse, the essence of Wander Lusting, and an essential gifting source for many Montclair residents, Jafajems came of age in Montclair, growing their collection of offerings, many from SE Asia and India, yearly. It's all in the eye of...
64 1/2 Chestnut St, Montclair, NJ 07042, USA
What happens when you cross great thin-crust pizza, pulled pork, blues, and barbecue? You get Ruthie's, a local Montclair favorite. While weekdays find high school students lined up down the block for a slice, many nights feature local and...
1 Museum Rd, New Windsor, NY 12553, USA
Traversing Maya Lin's grassy dunes that roll through Storm King Art Center's vast, open-air museum is somewhat mystifying. What seems natural underfoot is actually a series of symmetrically-orchestrated, human creations. This installation and...
Kidathineon 41, Athina 105 58, Greece
While sitting outside at a café in Plaka, the historical neighborhood in Athens, a brightly colored wall across the way—filled with bottles—caught my eye. Ouzo was something I wanted to try, as it is for many first-time visitors to Greece, but...
