1. The Highline
The Highline closes at 11PM but how many times have you wished you could take a 2AM stroll? The only potential issue we see is that the influx of club-goers at 4AM could be problematic. After all, if they’re already having sex in cars on the street, the Highline would be a serious upgrade.
2. Shake Shack
Before you tell us that there are plenty of burger shacks around town that are open 24/7, let us ask you one thing: is Shake Shack open around-the-clock? No. And until it is, this one will remain on our list.
3. The Museum of Natural History
A la Ben Stiller in Night at the Museum, we’re into walking around dinosaur and whale exhibits at midnight. Not so into stopping criminals from stealing magic stones but we’ve been told beggars can’t be choosers.
4. The Empire State Building
How cool would it be to tell your guests: “Oh the Empire State Building? Let’s not go now, it’s overrun with people at noon. I have the key code for the elevators. We’ll come back and check out the views around 4AM.”
Please refer to Shake Shack. Unlimited mochi, FTW!
6. McCarren Park Pool
Since we’re now all terrified to go swimming here during the day, unparalleled access around 11PM sounds perfect. Night swimming AND no risk of getting stabbed. It’s a win-win!
7. Coney Island Cyclone
Have you ever ridden a roller coaster all by yourself? Us either, but it sounds awesome.
8. Madison Square Garden
Unless you’re Justin Bieber, chances are you haven’t quite gotten around to renting out a massive arena for your personal use. Keys to the side entrance of MSG would be an instant way to confirm you’re getting a second date.
9. The Angelika
Insomnia would be so much less of a bear if you could catch an indie flick instead of waking up your roommate with repeat episodes of Breaking Bad.
We’ve all been there. Either you haven’t done laundry in three weeks or your best friend just spilled a beer all over you. Whatever the case, a good late-night clothier would be pretty clutch.
