314 Fun Things to Do in New York City

Zoomdoggle has a vaguely 2002-sounding dot-com name, but offers hundreds of fun things to do in New York City. NYC is easily among the most exciting places in the world, but, if you’ve lived there for a few years, you can fall into a rut just as if you lived somewhere a bit less world-class .

Hopefully you don’t have to go through that, and this free .pdf download could be your ticket out of Rutsville, NY. There are some stellar suggestions on the list, such as a tour of the Steinway piano factory, Pintchik Oracle (wish I knew about that!) and Open House New York (which is amazing).

Either way, don’t forget to look up like a tourist from time to time. If nothing else, you’ll probably wind up with rosier cheeks, even in the off-season. How fun is that?

I ended up cutting my own hair for years in order to save precious pocket change with which to enjoy the tiny pockets of awesome that can be found the city. There was a shop in the East Village (whose address I can’t remember) that had a tiny art vending machine. Little handmade objects for two bucks. The other use for Sacajawea dollars besides the subway ticket machines.
