When it rains like it did today, New York still has plenty of activities to offer. Here are some suggestions for what you can do on rainy days:
- SHOPPING , Big Appeal and the ladies: Please don't force the men to go shopping in the department stores in the bright sunshine, they are only human. A trip to the outlet in Woodbury or locally, for example in Century21. There is a lot to choose from in the city.
- MUSEUM VISIT: There are lots of museums in New York, including free ones, for example the Native American Museum of the American Indian. 5 different museums are offered in the CityPass . We have tickets for MoMA or the MET and you can save yourself the ticket line.
- MUSICAL : A visit to Broadway is always an option, but ideal on rainy days, e.g. The Lion King no matter how unpleasant the weather is this musical will put you in a good mood.
- CENTRAL PARK : Basically, the park is always full of people, especially on good weather days, where you can stroll undisturbed through the green lungs of the Big Apple on a rainy day and Central Park has something to offer in the rain.
- DAY TRIPS : The seat of the United States government, Washington DC, is approximately 400 KM from NYC and is well worth the trip. The excursion starts every day at 7 a.m. In addition to Washington, you can also visit Philadelphia and the Amish , Boston , The City of Kind Hearts or even Niagara Falls . The weather conditions in these cities are often different than in New York and rain in New York does not mean that it will also rain in Washington or Boston.
- JAZZ BAR : New York is famous for its jazz bars. In the 1920s during the Prohibition era when Lucky Luciano and Al Capone were in charge, jazz was still in its early stages and was mostly only played in secret bars . Today there are hundreds of jazz clubs, especially in the East and West Village. The rain gives these parts of the city something spooky.
Then there are a number of places you can also visit: Grand Central, Chelsea Market, St. Patrick's Cathedral, golf at Chelsea Piers for the sporty ones among you, simply take the subway around the world, for example take the F train over the Manhattan Bridge Brooklyn, United Nations Building, Public Library, the Great Library at Bryant Park or a pampering day at the spa.
