You can fill your day with high culture, work your way through the Pierpont Morgan Library, then onto the Metropolitan Museum of Art before rounding out your day with a little ballet at Lincoln Center. Or if you like your city grittier, spend an afternoon wandering through Little Korea, cross the river for some innovative art at Pierogi 2000 in Williamsburg and check out the moves at the West 4th St Basketball Courts. Your day of culture might turn edgy when you come across a gorgeous jazz singer on the subway platform – or if your bohemian day gets fancy when a chic boutique seduces you, and you’re shelling out for perfect shoes before you know it. Whatever you want, New York can offer it.
