Visit The Forbidden Planet

We are, of course, talking about the cool comic shop you can find in Union Square. What is so great about this shop? For starters, it gives those alternative vibes topped by an impressively rich selection of comic books to choose from. If you are a big fan of comic books, this is the ideal spot to visit in New York if you happen to be in the area. The shop has been designed and built as a replica of Captain America’s shield, which means geeks will find it particularly interesting, to say the least.

The shop has everything you can imagine, ranging from toys, manga DVDs, anime, action figures, graphic novels, movie memorabilia, cards featuring Magic: The Gathering and even a series of imported magazines such as the beloved Gothic Beauty series. You could even go home with a quirky T-shirt with your favorite superhero on it. The staff there is extremely friendly and eager to help, no matter if you are a newbie or you know exactly what you are looking for and you need help finding it. Also, you might want to know that there are quite a few writers and artists who love to drop by there periodically, so make sure you stay up-to-date with the shop’s Twitter announcements so you can schedule your own visits accordingly and get an autograph.

Check Out The Met Cloisters

The Met Cloisters is a special branch that belongs to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Focusing on architecture, art, as well as European gardens in medieval times, the Met Cloisters spreads across four acres and it is found in the Fort Tryon Park in the north of Manhattan. This branch has opened its doors to the public back in 1938 thanks to John D. Rockefeller, Jr., who bought the building and the land around it on behalf of the Met. The building overlooks the Hudson River and it features no less than five medieval cloisters featuring a modern structure, allowing visitors to admire the art pieces here in a truly historic backdrop.

This is the only museum in the country that has dedicated its existence to art in the Middle Ages and there are more than 2,000 amazing artifacts here belonging to Medieval Europe. Just keep in mind that you may need to take a half an hour subway ride from Midtown to get here. However, the superb park located nearby will bring you lots of peace of mind and help you feel more relaxed and detached from all the daily stresses, so the ride is worth it.

There is an interesting audio guide tour here and a cool gift shop where you can find a number of gifts ranging from jewelry, books, or interesting knick-knacks, all, of course, inspired by the medieval art on display here. There is even a cozy café where you will have the chance to enjoy some delicious soups, salads, or sandwiches.

Dover Street Market

The Dover Street Market has opened its doors to the people of New York at the end of 2013, on Lexington Avenue. This is so much more than another luxury department store. Think of it as an exhibition space where art meets fashion, where the designers are allowed to express their own concepts when displaying their pieces in such a way so that shoppers can easily interact with their creations holistically. What does this means? Shoppers will get the chance to immerse into the world of the designer instead of simply picking through the clothes that usually hang on hanging racks. For a brief coffee break while shopping, you can also check out the Rose Bakery cafe located at the ground floor.

Visit The Whitney Museum of American Art

The museum spreads across 50,000 square feet and its galleries host the works of art of famous names like Richard Avedon or Jean Michel Basquiat. If you are a fan, make sure you add the Whitney Museum to your list of things to do and see in New York. You will also get to see four outdoor spaces where exhibition are organized periodically, along with terraces and spaces, a restaurant on the ground floor and a scenic bar on the last floor.
