Jun 5, 2012 — It’s not surprising that the city that gave us Woody Allen, J.D. Salinger, Lichtenstein, and Gershwin remains a trendsetting world leader in culture, art, and music.
The city’s authenticity shines in its nightspots, too, where you can get everything from Prohibition-era drinks in divey watering holes in Greenwich Village to deep, rich ales from brew masters in Williamsburg.
The city is steeped in culture, making it easy on any given day to run across a film crew shooting the next cult classic or to stroll into a gallery full of mind-bending art. But the best way to truly experience New York is to just grab an Americano at a sidewalk café and watch as the droves of hurried New Yorkers stream by, off to set the world on fire.
