You buy tickets online ahead of time, then stand in line outside the theatre early the night of the show, to make sure you get a decent seat (the place is a total dive and if you’re late, you sit on the floor…which is kind of fun, too). The iconic Brooklyn Bridge takes my breath away every time I step onto it. This small park in Dumbo (right across the Brooklyn Bridge) is spectacular. The website ARTCAT lists when each exhibit will have its opening party (typically Thursday evenings), so you can stop by to sip wine and rub elbows with downtown artists. You’ll adore the skyline views of Brooklyn and Manhattan, as well as sparkling water, sailboats and the sunset. It’s on the waterfront underneath the Manhattan and Brooklyn bridges, so the views are dramatic and amazing.

You can sit on the reclining wooden benches, stroll along the meandering paths, and take in the city views. You’ll spot neon signs with massage prices listed by the minute (usually for 10 minutes), and you typically have to head down a few steps. :) Inside, you’ll see a row of massage tables, separated by a curtains instead of real walls; and the massage therapists will guide you to one.

Go to the back of the museum, take the elevator up, have a glass of wine, walk through the installation and look over Central Park. This side-splittingly hilarious (and kind of dirty) improv comedy show features uber-talented comedians from SNL, The Office and 30 Rock. Pick up an impromptu picnic with neighborhood pizza, ice cream and a giant chocolate-chip cookie.
