When was the last time you explored a hidden-in-plain-sight New York gem?

When we started to think about the holidays this year we realized that most of us have time off and are looking to keep busy without over spending. Of course you’ll visit the tree at Rockefeller Center, take a walk on 5th Avenue to see the department store windows and go to the newly released movies. Then what?
Eat, eat, eat.
You have to walk off all those extra calories somehow, so we decided to come up with some off-the radar spots you might want to explore. So that’s what brought you to my blog. But I need your help. We only had room for 15 spots, and didn’t even get outside of Manhattan. Please join us and share your favorite places throughout the New York City area.
Write a comment and tell us where you like to hang out, relax, or gather your thoughts for another round.
