My Favourite Three Things on a Rainy Day in NYC
The truth is that when it’s raining, and we want to go out, we often end up at the Met. If it’s the weekend, there’s much to do inside whenever we stand in line. Since we were able to maintain or acquire residency with the donation. The Met for us is free as residents. However, if you’re visiting New York, most attractions can add up in price, even for seniors. Museums are no exception. So here are some other options!
1. New York City Library
The main New York City Library is wonderful. If it’s not raining, I recommend walking out from Park Ave. on 41st St. And be sure to do the library walk. Take your time to read each of the bronze items. They’re quite fascinating. The library itself is amazing, as can be found in this article.
Treasures of the New York Public Library are amazing and free. Be sure to pick up a brochure upon entering, as it will include the layout map and an audio guide map before arriving. You may want to download the Bloomberg Connects app, which lists free arts and culture in various cities and has several places in New York City you may find interesting you could easily spend half a day in this library section alone.
2. Grand Central Terminal
Practically next door to the library is the Grand Central Terminal. I agree that it is usually on the top ten list to visit. There are lots to see, and I would avoid weekends and rush hour.
3. Subway Art
4. Other Things to Do on a Rainy Day in NYC
Of course, on a rainy day in NYC, one can always visit stores in Manhattan. Macy’s, for example, can take all day to go through. Macy’s Herald Square, occupying an entire city block, is a retail paradise that spans over 2.2 million square feet.
As one of the world’s largest department stores, Macy’s has become an iconic retail symbol and a beloved destination for shoppers visiting New York City. Situated in Herald Square, Manhattan, this historic flagship store has a rich and storied past stretching over a century.
Personally, I’m not fond of Tiffany’s jewelry, but a visit to the store is different. Located on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan, the Tiffany flagship store is a destination. Housed within a historic Art Deco building, the store exudes elegance and grandeur, serving as a beacon of luxury in the heart of New York City.
The association between Tiffany & Co. and glamour reached new heights with the release of Truman Capote’s novel “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” in 1958, later adapted into a beloved film starring Audrey Hepburn. Be sure to check out the special display on the fifth floor.
Take the elevator to the fifth floor and slowly make your way down. There is even a café if you can stop for coffee.
