I'm on vacation right now for two weeks here in Hoboken. I've never been to New York before, so I'm looking to run around the city doing things other than jerking off on the homeless. I don't know why the police care, I'm not vandalizing the police station yet. Jeeze, calm down.

I'm going to the Puppet Kitchen, but other than that I know nothing of the wonders in this city. I love fun, dumb, goofy, or "creative" activities.

Gimme somethin!

I can't help you with this, but I can say that out of context this is the most conspicuous thread title.

#3 Posted by ShadowConqueror (3052 posts) -

Not to derail the thread immediately, but "NY Bombers" seems like a poor choice of words. Enjoy your vacation!

I think there was actually a similar post about NY travel suggestions pretty recently that had some good ideas. I just don't remember what the post was called...

Phrasing.

I'm a New York Bomber.

The F.B.I's 'keywords' beeper is going off, somewhere deep inside the Pentagon. Prepare the party van.

You can go visit the new towers of the World Trade Center (Freedom Tower), check out the Empire State Building, go to a few museums or go to great sports games like the Yankees

NY Bombers sounds like the name of an intermural al-qaeda sports team.

just saying....

Aww man, anyone know how to rename or delete a thread? haha. That was a big goof on my part...

#10 Posted by Ramone (2967 posts) -

Ha, I'm so glad everyone else noticed the title.

#11 Posted by verysexypotato (214 posts) -

@Johacamigames: That's right! I hear there are some worthwhile museums around here. I'll definitely check those out. Thanks.

Nintendo World for sure. There are some cool collectibles that you can only get there.

That sounds amazing... I hope they have purple Yoshis. Those can fly, you know.

As an Upstate New Yorker... i'll just walk away, we don't want you up here anyways! (Sobbing)

Just wanted to jump in here and see if everyone read the title the way I did. I have my answer, bye.

#17 Posted by Walreese55 (506 posts) -

Eh Nintendo World is a bit of a disappointment to be honest. I'm not a native New Yorker but I can heartily recommend going to Garett's Gourmet popcorn. It's located near Penn Station, best popcorn I've had in my life. To quote Ron Swanson, it's damn good.

I have to say that at first, this was the most misleading title ever.

#19 Edited by Sackmanjones (4707 posts) -

Your thread sounds like you're asking a bunch of people who set off bombs (mostly in New York) to tell you somewhere to go in New York so you, yourself can bomb something there.  
 
I put everyones exact thoughts into my words. Youre welcome folks.
 
Just wanted to point that out.

Why don't you buy one of those adventure/surprise package things? I forgot the company that does it and I'm too lazy to google it but you should find it easily. You pay 'em and depending on how much you shell out they can take you from katana swordsmanship lessons to hot air balloons or foreign food tasting.

Edit: Ah, I remember! It was called surprise industries.

Don't worry, there's always the affable Canadians that treat Buffalo like their mall.

Not with that title

Waggity Schmaggity Doo!

#29 Posted by 49th (2758 posts) -

I don't wish to mention the title again but I have nothing of value to add - so without further ado,

the title.

#30 Posted by Djstyles92 (952 posts) -

Times square is a must. You could go to the museum of sex, its pretty interesting. If you have a ton of money you could go see the Rangers play in the playoffs at MSG. Go eat at some restaurants or food places, I recommend papaya dog for some really good hotdogs for cheap, its great for when youre drunk as hell.

#31 Posted by Marmaladebrat (298 posts) -

Pretty funny thread title. I run into the same problem all the time when I "check in" places and tweet. I'll write about listening to the Giant Bombcast while at Penn Station or other places while working in New York and get plenty of strange comments.

As fas as a few places to visit:

  • Nintendo World is worth a visit, they have some cool t-shirts and other things.
  • Playstation Lounge, 550 Madison Avenue, has sometimes got some cool stuff. (They had Uncharted 3 playable in the store a couple of weeks before release for example)
  • Barcade Brooklyn, a bar in Brooklyn that serves US craft beers and has many vintage stand-up arcade machines
  • Barcade Jersey City, they have a location in Jersey City, NJ too
  • Video Games New York video game store, 202 East 6th Street, they have some good old retro and import games here

this idiot wants to go spray paint things if you didn't catch on giving him advice is just so he can ruin your favorite works of art

If you ever go around the Syracuse/Ithaca area, you can look at the massive fields of farmland. And some nature parks too, I guess.

...there is NOTHING interesting out here past NYC.

#34 Posted by gla55jAw (2689 posts) -

I don't go to the City enough to recommend places (I live on Long Island), but what I will say is, do not ruin your chance of eating at amazing places by going to a chain restaurant. I never get why people visiting from all over the world, go and eat at Fridays when you can get that anywhere!

I love you! I totally agree. I've been hopping around to all these mom-n-pops hot dog places, indian eateries, and stuffing my face with anything I haven't seen anywhere else. I'll keep doing that.

The Barcades sound great. Thanks for this great info. I can't believe you even threw addresses at me. Much appreciated!
