I've been to NYC for a few times now and I'm going again late March. All the times I've been there were with people who used to lived there; so I did see some off-beaten places.
Now I'm going again and looking for some recommendations on things to do, not the regular-tourist stuff (though I haven't been to the empire state building nor the statue of liberty...).
I will be staying in Brooklyn, and the friend I'm staying with will be working so this time I need, and want, to have sime cool interesting things planned to see!
Looking forward reading your advices!
