    I know there's a bunch of clubs around NY but what are some good hip-hop ones for people in their 20's near Central Park? Also where could I get a I ♥ NY Tee? R there shops around Times square

    As far as rooftop lounges, 230Fifth, Gansevoort, Standard Hotel, the Standard also has a cool Beer Garden. If you're staying where I think you are, there should be a "rooftop bar" which isn't too high up, and the W across the street from you has a bar on the 5th floor with an outdoor balcony.

    If you're here on vacation and don't want to deal with stress, I'd say cabbing around would be the best way to get around, otherwise I'd get a subway map, there are tour buses but I've never taken them so don't know exactly how they work.

    Other tips are if you're keen on seeing the Statue of Liberty, take the Staten Island Ferry if you don't want to climb the Statue of Liberty, it's free and goes right by the Island, you can also see it if you cross the West Side Highway, go behind the World Financial Center buildings and walk along the water.

    Amazing great food during day, but even better late at night stumbling from a bar:

    Halal street cart

    53rd and 6th - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    53rd and 6th Halal Cart - Theater District - New York, NY

    4.5/5 stars after 1839 reviews. You know that means it's damn good

    My favorite place to eat for lunch in NYC.... Its right outside my job.
    Its called "The Frying Pan".

    Food: They Have BBQ Grill style food (order Skirt steak sandwich & seasoned Fries).
    View: Your sitting on a Barge right on the Hudson river over looking NJ and the George washington bridge.
    Drinks: They have a full bar (Buckets of corona's are the norm)
    Price: Expect to pay around $12-16 each for food. (Prices are higher at night)

    You can also eat on the actual "frying pan" (Red boat in picture) which is attached to the barge... I also encourage you to walk around & inside the boat. It used to be under water...

    Now this next one is strictly for bragging rights.... and to tell a story to your friends about "this crazy place in NYC".

    Its called Crif Dogs.
    Crif Dogs - New York, NY, 10009 - Citysearch



    They have a list of some crazy topping on hotdogs... such as the BTL hot dog or Chihuahua (Bacon wrapped dog with avocadoes). There burgers suck so dont do it.....


    Now for the fun part.....

    If you notice in the first bottom image there's a old wooden phone booth inside crif dog(Which can be seen better by the second picture).





    After 6pm you walk into that phone booth and pick up the phone and press #1 (You have to pick up the phone & press #1 or else nothing happens). Once you do The wall will move over revealing a hidden Bar called "Please dont Tell". yes this sounds like a joke but I am not shitting you

    "Please Dont Tell"
    Please Don't Tell - East Village - New York, NY

    Official site
    :: Please Don't Tell ::

    There drinks are expensive but there not your average drink. You cant just get a Vodka and pineapple.

    This review described it best "Yes the drinks are expensive but these guys are mixologists not bartenders and their work is really a science to watch and taste."

    Table service is always packed and never available... so your best bet is to just show up and try for a seat at the bar, At worst the'll take your cell number down and call you when a spot opens up.

    Again this place in my opinion didn't have the greatest drinks mostly because im a vodka guy and they mostly made drinks with whisky.... but its more the prestige of getting in and sharing with friends..... Its also funny when 4 of you leave from the phone booth and people are eating hot dogs looking at you like "how the hell did 4 of you come from that phone booth??".
