If you're new to NYC, or want to explore it beyond the surface, this class will jumpstart your New York experience. Learn the hacks, insights, and resources that most NYC transplants wish they’d known as newcomers—and many they still don’t. For those wanting to take a big bite out of the Big Apple, we will dissect the city and the best means to digest it, explore it, and own it.
What you'll learn
*How to put your finger on the pulse: Lesser-known but more effective ways of knowing where to go and what to do
*Strategies and tools for meeting new people and building your social and professional networks
*An introduction to NYC's underground / DIY nightlife scene
*The most quirky oddities, surreal spaces, and unusual places around town
*Living large on a budget: How to eat, drink, and exercise on the cheap (or free)
*Alternative ways to save & earn money (ie, how to negotiate out of paying a brokers’ fee and get paid to have your hair cut by a famous stylist)
*Smart, city-specific ways to simply your life and save you time
After class we'll have drinks and plan some NYC adventures!
