New York travel tips

1) Visit the incredible Strand Book Store in New York City

When you walk around Broadway in New York City, make sure to visit the Strand Book Store. This amazing shop looks like a museum. Address the kind staff, and they will help you to find what you need among more than 2.5 million titles (or, at least, they will recommend something similar).

2) Budget-conscious tourists in New York City use some tricks to watch a Broadway show

If you do not want to spend much money (it always costs a lot) for a Broadway show in New York City, follow some tricks: go to the box office early on the day of your selected performance, and ask for the unsold tickets. They can be up to 80% off. At the show’s end, wait at the back door to meet the lead actor or actress.

3) Find useful and weird things at the Bulletin shop in New York City

Head to the Bulletin shop at 27 Prince Street in New York City to explore the pink neon-lit shop of everything. There are good necessary bathrooms, skin care, and household things. And, of course, some weird things like sweatshirts emblazoned with different slogans and keychains engraved with phrases like “Oprah for president” are also available.
