New York Like A Native: Five Boroughs in Six Days

Sure, Manhattan’s great. But, why stop there? There’s more to the city than skyscrapers, and you won’t find the “real” New York in the lobby of a landmark. Skip the lines, high prices, and headaches that plague other Big Apple tourists and experience everything New York has to offer.

In New York Like A Native: Five Boroughs in Six Days, you’ll find that there is plenty to see and do in the less traversed parts of the city.

  • By train, bike, ferry, and even your own two feet, see the city the way a local would – in all its glory.
  • Discover the secret skyline views of Staten Island and dine at a restaurant staffed entirely by real Italian grandmothers!
  • Trek through the cultural melting pot of Lower Manhattan (and take in a scenic downtown artwalk along the way).
  • Then, head north of Central Park for immersive tours of historic Harlem and the Bronx’s Grand Concourse.
  • Spend a day at hidden haunts in Queens. Delve into New York’s film history and enjoy a night of free comedy at the city’s latest hotspot!
  • Bike through Brooklyn for a day of art galleries, off-off-Broadway theater, and more!

Don’t suffer through throngs of tourists just to see a small fraction of this big, wonderful city. This itinerary guides you throughout the city through the eyes of a local, so you can look up from the map and experience New York for all that it is.

New York Like A Native: Five Boroughs in Six Days offers six days’ worth of off-the-beaten-path activities, many of which are free or at suggested prices. Also included are detailed maps, public transit directions, and recommendations for unique local restaurants.
