You're wrong sir. I came with my family and we balled out pretty hard over the week. However, I had a day to myself and didn't want to spend any more money (especially when it's my own hahaha). Plus, I was sick of all the touristy attractions. I wanted to really experience the city in a different way than everyone who goes to NYC as a tourist.
End this thread because the day is over, but I ended up exploring the high line, eating at a halal stand, and spending some quality time at the Museum of Natural History.
