Creating a definitive guide to New York City is a near impossible task. This is a a city that is constantly reinventing itself, churning through fads and phases with the frequency of an angsty teen. What’s more, New York‘s hotspots are now spilling out into formerly overlooked neighbourhoods like Long Island City, Carrol Gardens, Astoria and Harlem, growing the city’s heatmap at an exponential rate.

As such, curating the perfect New York trip is an art form. Our guide is one that combines New York classics (minus the tourist traps), with new places on the scene that we believe have staying power. It’s one that shines a light on undiscovered parts of the city, while being mindful of the negative aspects of gentrification within these communities. Most importantly this is a guide with an ellipsis. Exploring New York City is an activity without an endpoint and no guide will ever truly be complete. Soak up everything you can, and come back ready to re-discover.
