Even in a city known for reinvention, it is hard to resist the allure of the past. Experience a bit of sophisticated time travel in many of the city’s haunts.
Take the A train to Resorts World, a bustling Queens casino that pales in comparison to Las Vegas but gives New Yorkers a closer option than Atlantic City or Connecticut.
This specialty shop, inspired by the golden age of hip hop, has an expansive offering of vintage and vintage-inspired fashion, products and accessories.
An interactive art project is offering free train tickets around the New York City region, but passengers do not know the destination until they leave.
See the city’s iconic Christmas tree or take a spin on one of the city’s many ice skating rinks, without elbowing your way through the masses.
