    Why non-traditional tourist points? Have you already been to those places?

      Times square and midtown is nice. Central park is nice. Those are traditional tourist spots but worth visiting.

      Times Square is probably the worst part of NYC

      The only time it’s worth it to visit Times Square is at 4:00 in the morning when nobody else is around. Otherwise it’s a disaster.

    What are you into? Museums, restaurants, shopping? My main advice would be to stick to one neighborhood a day, or maybe even one neighborhood the entire trip (e..g, pick one from times square, downtown/financial district, SoHo, Museum mile). Common mistake is to try to traverse the entire island of Manhattan in one day which is just exhausting.

      The trip uptown to Columbia University (Morningside Heights) is worth it. And Harlem has some incredible architecture just below 125th Street, the neighborhood is way better than its past reputation.

      The West Village is a nice place to walk if you just want to explore a neighborhood. It’s a fun mix of historic charm, restaurants and shops, and arts and entertainment (indie theaters, comedy clubs, jazz clubs, etc.)

    Vanessa’s dumplings in Chinatown Manhattan. And if you love asian food also Chinatown in flushing. Watch YouTube videos or nyc tours and are what you dig

      Thank you for your recommendation

      Those dumplings on Eldridge Street are insanely expensive. Vanessa’s charged something like $3 for 8 pork/chive dumplings, unreal! But damn they’re good. I spent a whopping $8 for a meal there, what a joke.

    Take a subway ride to Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Some think it’s overplayed, but I disagree. It’s quaint in a way that prime Manhattan doesn’t really offer. For example, there’s a tiny restaurant called Juniper, I don’t know how it stays in business. It was one of the most pleasant evenings I’ve spent in a restaurant, a classic NYC experience. Plus it’s BYOB, which is kinda cool. Don’t go if you’re in a hurry, because you or they won’t be rushed.

    If you’re into swing dancing or swing music, check out events by Prohibition Productions. There is also often live swing music at The Django. For more traditional jazz, The Blue Note, The Vanguard, and Dizzy’s. The late set at Dizzy’s is one of the best deals on live music in the city - $5 if I’m remembering correctly, and the venue is super nice.

    Tanoshi Sushi seems like a hole in the wall but is one of the best omakase sushi deals in the city. Humble surroundings, great food.

    The Metropolitan Museum of Art is a common destination for visitors, but New Yorkers love it too. I’ve been there multiple times and am in awe every time. It’s very much worth a visit if you haven’t been.

      Agreed the Met is awesome. If I lived in NYC I would probably visit once every couple of months.
