Unique Things to Try Out in New York – The Big Apple Explored Like a Local

New York may have many clichéd experiences; however, there are those unique moments when you know the experience is going to be one to remember. The Big Apple still has the capacity to surprise and awe; some of the experiences listed below are capable of doing so.


Sample Some Pastrami while Waiting for your Pastrami Sandwich

Katz is famous the world over, and you probably know how important it is to hang on to that ticket; well, an order worth making is for a famed pastrami sandwich the Jewish deli is loved for, and guess what? When you make it to the counter, you are rewarded with a sample piece of pastrami you can munch on, while waiting for your order to be ready! And if you are staying at centrally located properties in the city such as Hotel Central Fifth Avenue New York, Katz is just 20 minutes away!


Enjoy Cocktails on a Rooftop

Everyone knows that's cocktails don't come cheap in New York, but the clincher is the venue; the rooftop cocktail bars are loved for their expansive views, and well worth heading over to, especially if you have chosen apartment type accommodation New York City has on offer. The sweeping vistas from the rooftop bars are well-worth shelling out $15 on a cocktail; besides, it's an iconic 'must do' activity when in NYC.


Explore Some Abandoned Subway Stations

Plenty of movie scenes played out in abandoned subway stations deep beneath the city, may come to mind at this time. But what you should actually do is check out the 'City Hall Train Station', the place established in 1904 is a vintage treasure boasting skylights, brass fixtures and beautifully tiled ceilings. Here's a hint, take the line 6 going downtown, stay on till the last stop which is Brooklyn Bridge/City Hall, stay on the train and wait for the loop journey which takes a turn through the old station, giving you ample opportunity to 'ooh' and 'aah' at its splendour.


Score Yourself Some Free Wine

And just how do you do this? Well, indulging in a gallery-hopping round of course! Thursday is gallery night in New York, and by flitting from one chic gallery to another, pretending to know oodles about art, will help you score plenty of free wine, before heading back a happy camper to your apartment hotel in NYC; one of the best memories of the Big Apple you are going to have.


Eat A Late Night Snack

If you are staying at a popular New York City holiday apartment, head over to the nearest diner, just around the corner, and sink your teeth into a delicious chopped cheese and ground beef sandwich. One of the best midnight snacks you will enjoy. This iconic Harlem delight is going to seal your NYC experience. Make sure to go the full length and ask for a chopped cheese with ground beef, onions, lettuce and peppers pressed into an impressive hero sandwich. Harlem's most popular outlet for this is tipped to be Hajji's.
