Fancy something different? This is a game, show and tour in one. Small groups meet up with a ‘dodgy’ character somewhere in Manhattan (you will be notified of the exact location a day or two beforehand). Three different tours are available, Manhattan, Greenwich Village and a new 'experience' at the American Museum of Natural History (great one for the family) . You will be given your first set of instructions and the rest is up to you.... you will become an accomplice.... Not only a fun thing to do but you also get to see a part of NY that you might otherwise not visit. A great thing to do with a group of friends or family! This event has become so popular it now has similar 'experiences' in London and Hollywood! "Part game, part theater, part tour. Using the sprawling backdrop of the city as its stage, utilizing elements of improv theater and scavenger hunt, Accomplice will make you laugh, think, and experience the city in a whole new way."
The annual Big Apple Barbecue Block Party is held at Madison Square Park in June. It brings people from all walks of life together to celebrate America's culinary and musical traditions, real pit barbecue and live jazz, blues, bluegrass and rhythm & blues.
BIKE THE BIG APPLE!
Bicycle touring in New York City is much safer than you might think. Lots of different neighborhoods/tours to try. If you can’t find a tour that you might like (hardly possible, considering the choice), how about suggesting a route yourself?

Bryant Park is a city park, full of historical monuments and urban amenities. It’s a great social place where friends meet, eat lunch, chat, stroll, listen to music, work on the wireless network, or simply sit and think. Winter, Summer, Spring and Fall, New Yorkers love this park. Enjoy outdoor movies in the summer months, and enjoy a pre-theater/dinner drink at the outdoor bar. In the winter months the park is transformed into a 'free' ice-rink.

TripAdvisor: "While in New York City make sure to visit the newest market, great place to visit, and foodie hot spot. What is it? Eataly! A superb Italian market smack dab in Manhattan.Located south of mid town in the Flatiron District at the corners of 5th Ave, Broadway, and W. 24th Street Eataly is a foodie's dream come true! Whether you are a local looking for a place to dine or shopping for some upscale ingredients for a meal, a visitor looking for a great place to visit (and eat!), or just want to be in awe of what a real Italian market looks like you will not be disappointed. From walls of fresh hanging meats, to rows of freshly made pasta, to a cheese case to end all cheese cases, seafood from around the world, unbelievable desserts, to a produce section to write home about, you have it all in Eataly. And that is just scratching the surface. Oh, there all also top notch multiple places to dine within the confines of the establishment. One could go on and on about Eataly but instead just go, there will be no disappointments, and you will have enjoyed one of the greatest markets you have ever visited."
FEAST OF SAN GENNARO
The Annual Feast of San Gennaro is New York City’s longest-running, biggest and most revered religious outdoor festival in the United States, held on the streets of historic Little Italy, the lower Manhattan neighborhood which served as the first home in America for hundreds of thousands of Italian immigrants who came here seeking to improve their lives beginning in the early part of the 20th century.
An 11-day event featuring religious processions and colorful parades, free musical entertainment every day, a wide variety of ethnic food delicacies, charming restaurants and cafes and even a world-famous cannoli-eating competition! The central focus of the celebration takes place every September 19th, the official Saint Day when a celebratory Mass is held in Most Precious Blood Church, followed immediately by a religious procession in which the Statue of San Gennaro is carried from its permanent home in the church through the streets that comprise Little Italy.
