Ah New York, New York. The city of yellow cabs, skyscrapers, pizza slices and so many clichés. It pains us that in a town of infinite possibilities, New York newbies stick to the same old script of crowded museums, over-priced restaurants and Meatpacking mega-clubs. This city has so, SO much more to offer than its mid-town tourist traps and that West Village cupcake shop you saw on Sex and the City once. The people and places that make New York so magnificent cannot be located on its Wikipedia page; the crazy, over-the-top chefs in Chinatown, the trapeze artists in TriBeCa, the seductive perfumers in SoHo, the cinephiles in Williamsburg and the fashion curators in Bed Stuy are not so easily found in a Google search. But you’ll find them here, on our list; because we believe that a guide to New York should be just as diverse as the city itself. Opt for the bizarre, expect the unexpected and dare to go out of your comfort zone; the real New York is so much better than the postcard.
