5 Unexpected Travel Tips for New York

There’s a Big Apple for everyone, no matter where your passions lie. Here are five of our hometown favorites.

Unsung Museum: The Museum of Mathematics (trust us one this one). Even if algebra was never your forte, you’ll get to see its practical—and at times, downright beautiful—applications.

Top Urban Hike: The Highline, an abandoned train track turned urban garden. Come sunset, you can’t beat the views of the Hudson River. Grab a snack from one of the top-notch food vendors.

Best Pizza: You won't get the same answer from any two New Yorkers, including Birchbox eds. We're fans of Totonno's and Di Fara on the old-school side, and Motorino and Keste from the new guard.

Coolest View: The Roof Garden Café at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, overlooking Central Park. Sip a martini while you take in the sights.

Legendary Fro-Yo: The city is saturated with frozen yogurt shops, but Culture wins our undying love for their creamy confections, made on the premises.
