New York, New York… what an iconic destination! When thinking about it, you surely picture bright lights, skyscrapers, and screeching subways in your mind. The city has many landmarks everyone wants to see at least once in their lifetime, including the Statue of Liberty, Times Square, Central Park, and the Empire State Building.

These highlights are must-sees in NYC. However, if you’ve been to The Big Apple a few times already, you might want to skip the tourist attractions and look at ‘off the beaten path NYC’ things to do. 

Little corners only locals know about and curious places just waiting to be discovered are perfect for your next New York City itinerary. Scattered around Manhattan and beyond, you will find plenty of cultural and artistic venues, as well as under-the-radar experiences that will make your friends scream, “Where the heck are you now?”  

In this guide, we put together twelve NYC’s hidden spots for a unique visit to the city.

Going Off-The Beaten Path In New York City

Here is our personal list of the most exciting hidden gems in New York City.

#1 Abandoned City Hall subway station

Yellow cabs and subway stations are some of the images that come to mind when people think about Manhattan. But what do they have to do with an off-the-beaten-path itinerary in NYC? Well, one of the best attractions you can see is City Hall station.

This beautiful, yet abandoned, New York subway station was the first one ever built in Manhattan in 1904. It was supposed to be the centerpiece of the subway project, but over time, it became the least-used station until it closed down in 1945.

City Hall station was designed by architects George Lewis Heins and Christopher Grant LaFarge, who also worked on the Cathedral of St. John the Divine. This station is an underground piece of art, lavished with fine details, including glass tiles, curved archways, vaulted ceilings, and large chandeliers.

So, how do you catch a glimpse of this abandoned station? You have two options. The first way is not so legitimate. You need to take the 6 train downtown, and when it makes its final stop at “Brooklyn Bridge/City Hall”, you will have to hide and wait for it to pass through the station to turn around. 

The correct option would be to take a guided tour instead. 

OUR RECOMMENDED TOUR

This underground subway tour with a local guide includes a stop at the famous City Hall station.

Address: Meet up outside the entrance to the Fulton Center, at 200 Broadway, New York, NY 10038, USA.

Hours: The tour starts at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.

Price: Starting from $39.

Other info: 

  • Public transport ticket is not included in the price but is mandatory to bring your own.
  • A headset is provided to hear the guide during the tour.

#2 Roosevelt Island

Do you know that Manhattan has an island? We are talking about Roosevelt Island. Connected to NYC’s center by tram, this thin sliver of land lies on the East River. Make your way to Roosevelt Island to discover a part of New York’s history. 

The history of this island is rather macabre, as it was once home to an insane asylum and a prison. The most notorious building on the island is Renwick Hospital, a smallpox hospital in operation for 20 years in the mid-1800s.

Today, the Roosevelt Island Smallpox Hospital is in ruins, with only some outer walls and the foundation still standing. However, beneath the green ivy, you can still peek at its beautiful Gothic Revival architecture.

The hospital’s ruins are so striking that they were even used to shoot scenes in movies like Spider-Man and The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. 

But there is more to visit and do at Roosevelt Island. 

Head to the northernmost side of the island to admire Blackwell Island Light, a stone lighthouse built in 1872. About 49 feet high, it was built by prisoners serving their sentences on the island. The lighthouse is located inside Lighthouse Park, from where you can see panoramic views of the Big Apple.

Another great thing to do here is take a stroll in the Franklin D. Roosevelt Four Freedoms State Park. This memorial park is dedicated to the president’s namesake and was designed by popular architect Louis I. Kahn.

Make sure to pass by the Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd, listed as a historic place, and The Octagon, the main entrance to the New York City Lunatic Asylum.

OUR RECOMMENDED TOUR

A fun and different way to explore Roosevelt Island? This motorbike tour!

Address: Meet up at 30 Third Ave, New York, NY 10035, USA.

Hours: The tour starts at 10 a.m.

TOP TIPS FOR TRAVELING TO NEW YORK CITY

#3 Berlin Wall pieces

This next entry will be the most surprising of all – there are pieces of the Berlin Wall hidden in Manhattan. Yes, you’ve read it right. Checking them out is among the best off the beaten path NYC things to do.

The history of the Berlin Wall and the Two Germanies is well-known, but many don’t know why this 14-foot-tall concrete barrier was painted and how it ended up in New York City. In the early 1980s, local artist Thierry Noir began painting the west side of the Berlin Wall to make it less menacing. Little by little, other artists joined in, covering various sections with painted figures and graffiti. 

When the Berlin Wall began to be dismantled in 1989, more than 40,000 sections were recycled into building materials used for reconstruction projects. However, some pieces were auctioned off or gifted around the world. Five of the Berlin Wall sections arrived in NYC. 

Our favorite section is the one in Battery Park City, which was donated in 2004 to New York directly by the German Consulate. The exact spot where you can admire it is Kowsky Plaza. This section has graffiti created by Thierry Noir himself.

The other Berlin Wall not-to-miss section is located in front of the entrance to the United Nations. This is the most famous one for the phrase it bears, “Trophy of Civil Rights”, and was originally located at Potsdamer Platz in Berlin. 

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

The five known pieces used to be located at the Times Square Museum, the UN Building, Battery Park City, a Midtown office building, and the Air Space Museum. However, they have been moved several times, some are currently said to be under restoration before being relocated. 

Address: 

Hours: The pieces in Battery Park City and outside the United Nations can be seen day and night. 

Price: Free

#4 Red Hook Neighborhood

If you are planning a more extended New York getaway, you should explore neighborhoods outside of those in Manhattan. While Brooklyn is on pretty much everyone’s bucket list, many only stop in DUMBO or don’t venture any further than Williamsburg. However, there is a magical district to visit in Brooklyn, called Red Hook. 

What’s so special about it? Plenty! The vibe this area gives is calm-seaside-village-meet-industrious-shipping-port. Founded by Dutch colonizers in the 17th century, Red Hook became a prosperous shipping and port area a few centuries later. Most buildings you can now see are old warehouses and pre-Civil War federal-style edifices. These structures nowadays house trendy eateries, bars, and art galleries.  

Besides the insane food and art scenes, Red Hook is the only place in New York City with a clear frontal view of the Statue of Liberty. There are two different spots where you can go to admire the iconic landmark.

The first is Pier 44 Waterfront Garden, which houses the unique Waterfront Museum. The other spot is the Louis Valentino, Jr. Park and Pier. Once a waterfront shipping yard, this beautiful park was named after a local firefighter and lifeguard. From here, in addition to Lady Liberty, you can see Governors Island, the Manhattan Skyline, and Staten Island.

One thing that we really enjoyed doing in Red Hook was checking out an old abandoned street trolley from 1951. Why is this blue trolley so special? It is the last remaining trolley from a city project that aimed to bring trolley car transportation to Red Hook to connect the area to Downtown Brooklyn by public transport. 

In the past, you could visit four trolleys on the Red Hook waterfront. However, they were significantly corroded by the flooding from Hurricane Sandy, and only the one nestled between the waterfront and Fairway Market remains today – so don’t miss it!

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

The park is a legacy of the bravery of NYC firefighters and being named after Louis Valentino Jr. who lost his life in the line of duty shows the importance of the people who protect the city. 

Address: Ferris St &, Coffey St, Brooklyn, NY 11231, USA.

Hours: Open all day.

Price: Free

Other info: 

  • Kayak rental available at the pier.
  • Best spot for sunset and admiring the Statue of Liberty.

The Whispering Gallery is probably the most famous off the beaten path New York City attractions. Although not a hidden gem anymore, it is a wonderful treasure you will surely enjoy.

Head to the Grand Central Terminal in Midtown Manhattan, the worldwide station known for its magnificent architecture and the heart of the bustle of the city. Step inside it and reach the Oyster Bar & Restaurant. It’s here, in this relatively plain-looking space, that the magic happens. 

The gallery has an arch that creates a special acoustic effect, with the barest sounds perfectly transmitting from corner to corner. To try it, you will need to stand on one side of the diagonal arch with your ear at the wall, and if there is someone else speaking, even softly, on the opposite side, you will hear them loud and clear.

This phenomenon is caused by the gallery’s peculiar architecture, particularly how the arch goes up to the domed ceiling and the special tiled surface. The distinctive tile work is “Gustavino” tiles, named after the Spanish tile worker Rafael Guastavino. There are other places in NYC with Gustavino’s works, like in the Crypt of Old St. Patrick’s Cathedral.

OUR RECOMMENDED TOUR

There are more secrets inside the Grand Central Terminal. In addition to the Whispering Gallery, discover hidden tennis courts and a lost movie theater with this fantastic tour.

Address: Meet up in front of track 29 inside Grand Central’s main atrium, at 89 E 42nd St, New York, NY 10017, USA

Hours: The tour starts at 10 a.m. or 2 p.m.

Price: Starting from $39.

Other info: 

  • This tour lasts approximately 1 and a half hours.
  • A headset is provided to hear the tour guide during the tour.

#6 Fort Wadsworth

If you truly want to go off the beaten track NYC, you need to start exploring Staten Island. Besides being a perfect place for taking the Staten Island ferry to the Statue of Liberty, as it goes a fraction of the distance from the one from Manhattan, Staten Island has a very little-known spot. Here, you will find one of America’s oldest military sites.

Fort Wadsworth was built to protect New York Harbor at a time when seacoast fortifications were a main method of defense. After being in activity for 200 years, the fort is an abandoned hulk today. Before being closed down, Fort Wadsworth held the record for being the longest continually occupied military base in the United States.

This waterfront fort has a long and interesting history and had different names throughout the decades, depending on who controlled it. From the first small Dutch fort at its foundation in 1663, Fort Wadsworth passed into English hands during the Revolutionary War before being reverted to New York’s control at the war’s end. 

After World War 2, Fort Wadsworth fell largely out of use. Today, the fort is part of the Gateway National Recreation Area, serving as a park and a host of historic tours. One of the things we adore doing here is a picnic while admiring New York Bay. 

Fort Wadsworth is also the starting point of the New York Marathon, making it a pretty famous site that is under the tourist radar. 

#7 New-York Historical Society

Every trip to New York City has to include a visit to at least one of the countless museums it boasts. Something that surprised us was the New-York Historical Society. Although it is considered NYC’s oldest museum, tourists always overlook it.

This museum was established in 1804 by a group of men who wanted to preserve the accounts and artifacts of the recently-ended American Revolution. By visiting it, you will experience 400 years of history through an outstanding permanent collection as well as immersive films.

Among the most revered exhibits are the Thirteenth Amendment, the Constitution, and the Emancipation Proclamation. In addition to these unmissable exhibits, the New-York Historical Society boasts ever-changing temporary ones so that if you visit the museum multiple times, you can learn about different topics.

The New-York Historical Society isn’t just a history and art museum, but also houses a library, a women’s history center, and a children’s museum. Something unique about this museum is its name, where the word ‘New York’ is written with a hyphen. It was the archaic spelling of the city, which was popular when the museum was opened, adding to its historical relevance.

#8 House of Yes

New York is known as the city that never sleeps, so staying up late and exploring its nightlife is a must. The opportunities you have are countless, so you will need to know where to look to find your ideal hang-out spot.

Besides spending an evening in a theater for a Broadway show, we love the entertainment offerings at the House of Yes. Located in East Williamsburg, Brooklyn, the House of Yes is popular among New Yorkers but is still unknown to tourists.

Entering this venue, you will find yourself in a dreamland. The performances range from circus to cabaret to dance, and the shows are always innovative. Moreover, all the costumes and sets are created by the artists and owners of the House of Yes themselves.

Artistics- and self-expressions are at the core of the House of Yes, so much so the venue has the “Beauty Bar”, where professional make-up artists upgrade guests’ looks with glitter, temporary tattoos, and more

If you are ready for impressive acrobatic performances, burlesque or drag shows, and after-hours parties with the best DJs, the House of Yes is the best spot to experience the eclectic side of NYC’s nightlife.

#9 St. Patrick’s Catacombs

Among the off the beaten path NYC things to do is explore the catacombs of the striking St. Patrick’s Cathedral. This Catholic basilica is an unmissable landmark in Northern Little Italy (or NoLita, for those in the know). 

Surrounded by scape-scrapers, St. Patrick’s Gothic architecture is surprising and creates a beautiful sight. However, in its undergrounds, this church keeps the real reason for a visit. Here, you will find an entire system of catacomb tunnels, a rare example in the United States

The catacombs were used for religious practice and burial places. They are the final resting place of 35 wealthy local families who had supported the Catholic Diocese in New York. 

Unlike the ancient catacombs of Paris and Rome, you won’t find scattered human bones in St. Patrick’s catacombs. Instead, walking down the 120-foot-long crypt corridor, you will see marked and sealed vaults – but the experience won’t be any less surreal and solemn!

OUR RECOMMENDED TOUR

Don’t miss your chance to get an exclusive look at these iconic catacombs with this special tour. Besides touring St. Patrick’s at candlelight for an extra suggestive time, you will have exclusive access to off-limits areas.

#10 Louis Armstrong’s house

Bet you didn’t know that Louis Armstrong’s house was in Queens! The house where the legendary soul singer and trumpeter lived in with his wife Lucille is today a museum dedicated to the musician.  

Nicknamed “Satchmo” and “Ambassador Satch”, Louis Armstrong was born in New Orleans in poor conditions. He came to prominence in the 1920s thanks to his unparalleled talent. He is credited with helping usher in the era of big jazz bands. Armstrong recorded songs that are heard and played these days, with successes of the likes of  “La Vie En Rose” and “What a Wonderful World”. 

The house is in its original condition, with the very same furnishings. Walking around the rooms of this three-stock red-brick building, you will still feel the presence of the couple, who lived here for 30 years. 

Particularly special is the studio, where you can hear recordings of Louis Armstrong speaking about life, masterfully playing his trumpet, and singing. 

To visit the museum, you will need to do a guided tour. The expert museum guide will explain the history of each room of the house and the stories behind specific furniture pieces and objects. You will also discover the events that marked the place. 

Louis Armstrong’s House Museum is for you if you are a fan of the musician and jazz, but also if you are interested in knowing more about this music legend and his fundamental imprint on the contemporary music history of the US.

#11 Keith Haring’s ‘Once Upon a Time’ bathroom mural

New York City has a central place in the LGBTQ+ history of the US. In particular, the West Village is among the neighborhoods in the city where most actions for the gay rights movement and the resistance during the AIDS epidemic took place.

If you really want an off the beaten path New York City experience, you should visit the restroom of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center. Here, you will find a masterpiece of LGBTQ+ art, the ‘Once Upon a Time’ mural by Keith Haring.

Keith Haring was a pioneering artist who used graffiti and street art as a form of social activism to raise awareness of HIV and AIDS. In May 1989, Haring created the mural as part of “The Center Show”, a celebration of the 20th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots inside the LGBT center. This artwork is anything but ordinary, as it was Haring’s last major mural before his untimely death from AIDS-related complications. 

The artist created provocative work in the center’s second-floor men’s bathroom, featuring elements bearing Haring’s signature black-on-white line drawings. With time, the mural deteriorated as the artist didn’t prime the surface of the walls before painting on it. Plus, years of leaving the bathroom window open without much attention further ruined it. 

Thankfully, the mural was restored and is now open to the public. Make sure to see this important and beautiful piece of art for yourself!

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

Address: 208 W 13th St, New York, NY 10011, USA.

Hours: 

  • Monday – Saturday, from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m.
  • Sunday, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Price: Free

Other info: 

  • The mural is open for public viewing during The Center’s operating hours.

#12 The Ganesh Temple of Queens

This last New York off the beaten track item is probably the most surprising. When we visited Queens, we couldn’t believe our eyes when we saw an enormous Hindu temple in the neighborhood’s suburb. 

This imposing structure with intricate carvings is dedicated to the deity Ganesh, and it will make you feel like you are walking on Southern Indian soil. This was the first traditional Hindu temple built in the United States, and its construction began in 1970, using granite from India. 

Housing the Hindu Temple Society of North America, Ganesh Temple in Queens is a thriving place of worship and a popular community center. The temple’s basement has a canteen serving delicious South Indian food. The Dosas they make at the temple are known to be among the best you can taste in New York City! 

A visit to Ganesh Temple is a beautiful way to get to know the local Hindu community, learn more about their culture, and share moments of peace and their traditional cuisine.

Closing Thoughts

New York City is one of the world’s most visited places, with nearly 70 million tourists each year. Hoping to catch a glimpse of the towering skyscrapers, walk in Central Park, take in the views of the Brooklyn Bridge, and see an outstanding Broadway performance, visitors often stick to the stereotypical NYC itinerary.

However, so many off the beaten path New York City attractions are just waiting to be explored. We crafted this guide to inspire you to venture further afield from the common ways to see NYC, and discover places and experiences that most tourists don’t even know about.

Frequently Asked Questions

Should I include off-the-beaten-path activities if I stay in NY only for a weekend?

Yes and no. A single weekend is not enough time to see what NYC is all about, so you should stick with the most famous attractions, especially if this is your first time visiting the city. However, if you are curious to check out a quirky spot, go for it! 

What’s the best non-tourist experience to have in NY?

Although this largely depends on where your interests lie, we particularly loved the abandoned City Hall Subway Station.

Which less-popular museum should I visit?

The New-York Historical Society if you like to know more about US history, or the Louis Armstrong’s House Museum if you like music.

Should I buy a NYC Attraction Pass?

Yes, if your NYC itinerary includes a mix of popular and lesser-known attractions. Otherwise, if you are planning to just check out unusual spots in the city, you won’t find particular use for either the NYC City Pass or the GoCity Pass.
