Sleeplessly Exciting Things to Do in NYC for 24 Hours

Sleeplessly Exciting Things to Do in NYC for 24 Hours

Things to Do in NYC for 24 Hours

New York is "The City That Never Sleeps" for a reason. Rather two dozen of them - one for every hour, if you choose to live up to the nickname. Time Out New York recently released a guide of things to do in NYC for 24 hours, tailored to adventurously sleepless New Yorkers and visitors alike, brimming with off-the-beaten-path attractions to color your next big city all-nighter. Here's the breakdown:


Dessert for Breakfast - Or Vice Versa…

Start / end your tour sweetly, with ice cream in your coffee at Bluestone Lane (30 Broad Street).


Feel Like a Bronx Cowboy/girl

Jaunt up the 6 train to Pelham Bay Park, where $35/hour puts you in the saddle for a ride through the woods in New York's only mainland borough.


Secret LES Shopping

The photo booth in the arcade at 54 Clinton Street opens to a men's boutique, with wares from local designers and days of yore.


Better than Streaming

The Paley Center for Media (25 W. 52nd Street) has archives of over 100,000 TV shows, and consoles for viewing. Too bad you can't take your shoes off…


Tour MoMa After-Hours

For $63 a person, one of the world's most famous museums is all yours.


Elevate for a Sunset Picnic

The Elevated Acre (55 Water Street) beckons with killer views, 30 stories up.



Bypass a rundown storefront for dinner at Hudson Clearwater (447 Hudson Street), followed by Prohibition-era debauchery at Bathtub Gin (132 Ninth Avenue), and the city's best late-night-only noodles at Benkei Ramen (115 Allen Street).


Sail into Sunrise

Meet morning with a front-row view of Lady Liberty and the Big Apple skyline on the Staten Island Ferry. Rest up on the ride back, and do it all over again!
