    I liked reading about the less travelled places. I was in Central Park and of course was unaware about the Ramble Cave. There are so many interesting places you highlighted and would like to visit. Old City Hall station and this tiniest Mmuseumm and who would have thought to find a piece of Berlin wall and Statue of Lenin in NYC!

      Indeed, Adele. This list could probably even get longer 😛

    When I visit a new place, I always on a hunt for some non-touristic places, somewhere I could enjoy my moment, staring and admiring . These places you’ve mentioned in NYC definitely I haven’t seen even in movies. You are right, these are worth visiting!

    Wow so many hidden gems in NYC as I have gone there but saw only those touristic attractions which are listed everywhere. It is always fun to see such places. My choice would be to spot a sunset from secret place and also the small pox hospital at Roosevelt Island looks interesting.

    We have an apartment in NYC, but some of these places are new to me! I like the look of the tiniest museum, and Sunset Park looks so peaceful and surely less touristy too. That’s so interesting about the Berlin Wall, I’d never have guessed!

        While travelling in a popular destination, I love to discover or explore hidden gem of a place. It’s great to have the place all to yourself and spend some quality time in it

    I lived in NYC for several years and didn’t know about many of these. The wonderful thing about the city, as you mentioned, is constantly discovering new things and always eating at new restaurants! I have wanted to see the abandoned hospital for some time as I love photographing abandoned buildings and now I’ll have to add Calvert Vaux Cove to my list as well! Thanks for the tip.

      Wow, that’s surprising to hear but on the other hand, also a great reminder of just how much New York has to offer 🙂

    New York is, of course, iconic and everyone knows about its famous landmarks. but these are some really interesting and off-beat attractions that you have curated. Each one on the list is unique and really amazing. But the Houdini Museum, the Mmuseum, and the Berlin Wall, really captured my imagination.

    Wow! I have never been to New York (though it’s on my to do list) and I have heard of all the major attractions and I can honestly say I never knew about any of these. I love to find hidden gems. The booze and tiniest Museums will be on my future list of stops in New York. Simply because In love Museums!!

    I hope I do visit USA atleast once in lifetime. NY is just fascinating. I can understand when you say that we can keep finding hidden gems in the large metro city there – I felt that in London. So many hidden gems!!!
    You can visit the station from where the 1st metro started? Whoa! Thanks for the tip about booking ahead.
    The small pox hospital looks interesting. The way nature has overgrown on it, makes it picturesque!

    I’m heading to NYC in November but sadly only have one day to see the city. I’m definitely interested in the Old City Hall Station and the Houdini museum. These are great hidden gems and off the beaten path for sure so hopefully that means less groups of travelers.

    The touristy places are always crowded and for good reason… but I always love finding hidden gems! I am visiting my friend in NYC soon and will definitely keep this handy, thank you!

    I could really do with another trip back to NYC. I haven’t been for 2 years, but everyone I go back there’s some cool new thing that everyone’s talking about. Good to have a list of some more things to explore as well.

    The secret sunset spot is a nice place to relax. It reminds me the view in Shanghai, Pudong. It has the city view with a clear sky scene.

    I love lists like this, getting away from tourists an to the lesser known spots is sometimes the best way to see a city. I have heard of a few of these but not many! The smallpox hospital would be a cool place to visit around Halloween.. it looks super creepy.

    This is indeed an interesting collection. None of these would come to my mind if I think New York. I liked the old station, abandoned ships, and Sisyphus Stones most of all!

    I was in NY but only for short while. Hope I get to see it again in the future. Saving it for future reference.

    Wow, looking at some of these pictures, I wouldn’t have guessed these places are in New York! I would love to see the remnant of the Berlin Wall, I had no idea it existed in New York. Also, the Pamender walk with the Tudor-style houses looks pretty awesome. The Old City Hall station is so cool and instaworthy! Such a lovely list of places I had no idea existed in New York but certainly deserve a visit next time I’m there.
