Are you staying in New York this spring break? Are you tired of people asking you what you’re doing with your week of free time and then getting the pity head turn when you say you’re staying here? Well, it’s time to get pumped because you’re spending a whole week without classes in one of the best cities in the world! And as someone who has only ever stayed here during spring break, I can assure you that you will survive AND you will have a great time. Here are some ideas for how to spend all that time:
|Flea markets are always fun|
1. Brookyln Flea
Brooklyn Flea has been on my to-do list for a while and since it’s still a little chilly out, they are holding it inside for a little longer. There are hundreds of vendors selling cool, antique items here and there are a bunch of food vendors as well! And spring break is a great time to explore places other than Manhattan like Brooklyn, the Bronx, and Queens.
2. Walk Through Central Park
Since it finally feels like spring and since it will (hopefully) persist during break, walking through Central Park is one of the most beautiful and stereotypically New York things you can do. Luckily, if spending a lot of time outdoors isn’t your thing, take a quick stroll through the park and end up at the Met where you can spend the rest of the day looking at art and feeling cultured. If you also aren’t too keen on walking that much, you can take the subway down the Upper West Side and then walk across or, you know, just take the bus to the Met.
