New York travel tips

1) Take a benefit from the “Lunch Special” deals in New York City's sushi bars

If you like sushi, visit sushi bars in New York City during the lunch hours (anytime between 12:00 and 15:30) and look for the “Lunch Special” deals. For example, Aya Sushi at 314 W 39th Street has 50% off everything.

2) In summer, watch free films on the open air in New York City

If you travel around New York City in summer, do not miss locals' favourite activity — watching a free film under the stars. They show films daily on the top of the Intrepid Museum Boat and Bryant Park. You need to check the website to see the timetable.

3) See the New Museum of Contemporary Art in New York City at least from the outside

Only the modern building of the New Museum of Contemporary Art at 235 Bowery in New York City is worth visiting; it consists of seven ethereal, off-kilter white boxes. Culture lovers should go inside. They identify their concept as: “New art, new ideas.” True to the word, they give space to unknown artists at the beginning of their careers.
