Things to Do at Night in NYC
Night owls are in good hands in New York City. Whether catching a live performance of the New York Philharmonic in Central Park, playing stick ball under the street lamps in Brooklyn or heading up to the Bronx to catch a Yankee's game, visitors will find there is much to do in New York after dark.


Shake your backside into the wee hours of the morn at Webster Hall. Though many of the city's gyms might be closed, there is no reason why visitors can't enjoy a little exercise. Why do step aerobics during the day when you can boogie at a club under the pulsating lights? Guests can dress in their coolest threads and comfy shoes before sliding their way across the dance floor at Webster Hall. For those who prefer live music, Webster Hall also produces shows highlighting regional and local touring acts.

Sports Complex

Satiate your need for sport by visiting Chelsea Piers. This massive sporting complex sits right on the Hudson River and offers a wide variety of activities to choose from. Venues located along the piers include a year-round, outdoor driving range for golfers, basketball courts, a bowling alley, indoor soccer, gymnastics, baseball, two indoor ice skating rinks and a rock climbing wall. Facilities here are nicely kept, and visitors will find locker rooms to stow their gear. After a long day of standing in line at area tourist sites, the piers make for a suitable way to release some steam.

View Upper New York Bay for free on the Staten Island Ferry. Though most residents and visitors use the ferry during the daytime, those sailing during the evening hours are rewarded with the glowing skyline of downtown Manhattan, views of the towering Verrazano-Narrows Bridge and Brooklyn, New Jersey's Liberty Park and the Statue of Liberty with her torch lit to welcome you. Besides indoor seating, the big, orange boats also offer outdoor areas where riders can take a deep breath of fresh ocean air as they travel.
