How to Live Like a Local for a Day in New York City

Posted October 21, 2012 by in NYC/ Shopping/ Traveling

New York City may be one of the greatest travel destinations on the planet, but you’re not going to see the REAL New York if you simply stick to the tourist areas. Yes, Times Square is fun the first few times, but once you’re ready to move on, we have the guide for you.

Broke & Chic teamed up with MTV Travel Co to show you exactly where to go and what to do to get the perfect NY experience on a budget! Here’s an excerpt:

As a New Yorker living in Midtown, I usually have an empty wallet and a constant urge for shopping. On the few days I can hit the town, I start my day with a $4 cup of motivation. A medium latte from Stumptown Coffee Roasters located at the entrance of the Ace Hotel on 18 W 29th St. Beautiful foam art included. I’m then going to start shopping at Buffalo Exchange on 114. W 26th St. in Chelsea. Buy/Sell/Trade stores are an amazing take on thirfting and they’re popping up all over the USA. No two are alike, so always stop in to see what they have.
