4 NYC Spots Where Real New Yorkers Go, Brooklyn, New York

Going to New York City is always an experience, but having your car service drive you to the same touristy places as everyone else can feel unadventurous. Thankfully, the Big Apple is loaded with an endless amount of incredible gems that the locals treasure, but probably won’t come up on your standard NYC searches. Below are several spots your car service driver will be happy—and surprised—to take you.

What Are Some of the Best Spots in NYC?

1. City Hall Subway Station

The City Hall Subway Station is an abandoned subway station that can only be accessed by scheduling a tour via the New York Transit Museum. In order to get in, you have to pass a background check, and then be put on the waitlist. It’s an exclusive experience that is well worth the effort, as you’ll be standing in a cavernous and historic space that only a lucky few get to pass through. You can get information about ticket sales and available tour times online.

2. The Cloisters

It focuses on Gothic and Romanesque periods of European art and architecture, and the building itself is an unforgettable architectural statement. Located in Fort Tryon Park, they’re open seven days a week, and you can get your tickets online.

3. The McKittrick Hotel

The McKittrick Hotel offers you the chance to slip into another world. They’re best known for their immersive theater experiences, with their most popular show being Sleep No More®, but they also have an atmospheric, brooding bar called the Manderley, which offers live music, and a hidden oasis-like garden called the Gallow Green. It’s not on every tourist’s list, but it’s popular enough that your car service will still know where it is. You can join their mailing list and make reservations on their website.

4. Smith & Mills Bar

Smith & Mills is an elegant, rustic bar with refined dining, lavish cocktails, and a unique setting. They don’t accept reservations, so you may have to wait to be seated, but it’s well worth it. If you scheduled airport transportation, this is the perfect place to go to have a drink and figure out the rest of your day or wait for hotel check-in. You can browse their cocktails and other menus before you go, or get gift certificates for friends who are planning a trip soon.
