The moment you've all been waiting for is finally here: my New York City guide. It's finally ready. The ultimate guide for New York, with restaurants, bars, healthy spots, museums, hotels, rooftops... You name it, it's on there. During the first six months of 2017, I tried a lifetime worth of spots, all for the sake of discovering the best places so that you won't have to. Time is precious when you're in New York, so that's why I created this guide, to help you. Whether you live in New York or you're going on a city trip, this guide will help you find your way through the city and discover new places. I did the dirty work, now all there is left to do now is for you to enjoy one of the most incredible cities in the world. Edit: last updated January 2018
Of course, it's impossible to do everything in this ever-changing city, so these are only the places I personally tried. I omitted the places I didn't like and only mentioned the places worth mentioning. Some are hyped and don’t really deserve the hype, others are not well known at all and deserve a lot more praise. I think there’s something in here for everyone, and even for locals, there might be a couple of undiscovered places. Click on this link to go to the map and download the PDF guide here.
I created the following categories to make things a little easier:
• Breakfast & Brunch
• Lunch & Dinner
• Sweets & Ice Cream
• Bars & Clubs
• Shops & Markets
• Museums, Galleries & Landmarks
For each place, I wrote one or two sentences with my opinion and specific recommendations. Because 5000+ words worth of mini-reviews was a bit too much to put into one blog post, I made a PDF document with the complete guide which you can download here.
I hope this map and guide is useful on your next trip to New York City. I try to keep it updated every couple of months as some places close down and I discover new spots whenever I go. There are more than 250 places on this map so plenty to explore. Enjoy!
