 I wrote this page to help document my favorite places in New York.  The target audience is friends visiting from out of town.  One thing to keep in mind:  I'm going to omit most of the über touristy stuff and focus on true New York local experiences. I wrote this page to help document my favorite places in New York.  The target audience is friends visiting from out of town.  One thing to keep in mind:  I'm going to omit most of the über touristy stuff and focus on true New York local experiences.
  
-====== The Areas ====== +[[http://www.atlasobscura.com/things-to-do/​new-york/​places|Obscure Things ​to Do]]
-On the first pass, I'm focusing on areas I've spent the most time in and/or can give decent opinions on For example, as much as I like the Upper West Side, I haven'​t spent much time there So for this pass, I'll skip it.  So here's the list: +
- +
-  * **Midtown West** +
-    * Yes, Midtown West is the nexus of the tourist universe, and deserves a lot of its reputation. ​ But it's also the daytime home to a ton of office workers (myself included), and all of those office workers need places to eat/imbibe outside besides Olive Garden and Applebees. ​ I hope to provide some ways to navigate around the beaten tourist track. +
-  * **Midtown East** +
-    * The quieter, more residential side of midtown. ​ There are some real gems hidden here. +
-  * **East Village** +
-    * Where I spent my first year of "real life" and still one of my favorite areas. ​ I'll admit, I don't get down to EV as often as I'd like anymore (especially while I'm here in London), but hopefully most of the stuff I list stays relevant. +
-  * **West Village** +
-    * The West Village is definitely more polished than the East Village, and one might want to navigate around the NYU-bar scene, but there'​s still great hidden gems here. +
