We have come up with a list of things that are off the beaten path and have an odd little twist to them. Personally, I like the idea of seeing things that most people do not know about. So, here is our list of things you might want to try when you are in the Big Apple!
Try a unique scavenger hunt with accomplish the show! They claim it is actually part theater and part tour. This tour allows you to see New York on a pre-arranged mission.
Check out the underbelly of the city by finding the hidden subway station under city hall. Try to locate the Whispering Gallery at Grand Central station; it is at an unmarked archway in front of the oyster bar. They say it is a great place to whisper a proposal. Just be careful that it is your significant other that you end up proposing to, the sound travels in a unique path in there.
Berlin wall remnants are at Paley Park. Many people think this is just a mural at the park and often go there without a clue, but it is actually 5 sections of the Berlin wall.
Take a magical mystery tour with hip host to check out all things "The Beatles".
Visit the Staten Island boat graveyard. An official dumping ground for disused and decommissioned ships. They say it is a photographer's dream location, so this would make an awesome photo date trip.
Check out the City Reliquary Museum, a not-for-profit museum with all things New York. This quaint little shop is worth the stop.
If you want to get a bit of a scare, visit the Merchants House Museum. This museum is a 19th-century town-home that is said to be haunted.
Do you know of any "odd" places or things to do in New York? We would love to hear about them!
