No Fee bad weather blog

We tend to see a lot of random weather fluctuation here in New York City, and it’s easy to binge watch Netflix and order seamless when it’s crummy outside, but you’re missing too much! Some of my best memories are from times when almost all my friends stayed in because it was snowing, or pouring rain. Don’t let the weather stop you from doing your thing! Throw on those wellies and a raincoat and make some memories! Here are some of the best things to do in NYC when the weather is trying to cramp your style.

1. Hit a Bucket of Balls at Chelsea Piers: Seriously, hitting golf balls is so underrated. I go all the time with my friends, and Chelsea Piers is an awesome place to blow off some steam by whacking some golf balls.
2. Hit Up a Museum: New York is home to some of the world’s best museums. From oogling the gems at the Natural History Museum to making memes of the most famous oil paintings at the MET, there are so many fun things to do in museums around NYC. For a full list click here.
3. Head to a Bar with Games: Ah yes, the most popular American past-time, drinking games. Check out Brooklyn Bowl, Barcade, Jakes Dilemma, or Spin for some awesome daytime (and into night time) fun.
4. Grab Your Pals and Hit the Spa: Let’s be real for a second and just say that EVERYDAY can be a spa day, but on rainy days when you don’t feel like walking from place to place, hit up a spa for a day. Check out the Russian Bath’s in the East Village, or Bliss Spa in SoHo.
5. Check Out a Movie: a trip to the cinema in New York City is different than in most cities. Indie theaters like the Angelika Film Center and the Landmark Sunshine Cinema, for example, screen the kind of nonmainstream fare (documentaries, foreign films and such) that you’d be unlikely to find in a typical multiplex. The same goes for the movie theater at the Brooklyn Academy of Music. For those who want to experience the splendor of movie palaces past, it’s worth a trip to the Ziegfeld, which opened back in 1927 as a Broadway theater and only shows one film at a time in its cavernous screening room—often the site of major premieres. If you’d like to combine dinner and a movie, you should try Nitehawk Cinema in Williamsburg.

So while every once in a while it’s totally fine to watch TV all day in your pajamas and order-in for every meal, it’s important to get up and out of your awesome New York Apartment for some memories! If you’re looking for aplace to live, check out these great apartments.

Until next time!
