    Toy Tokyo has been a staple in the East Village for years, and they're still going strong! My favorite location in the store is where they always have the newest and cutest blind boxes. They also have a lot of classics like Godzilla, as well as memorabilia from old, popular anime/movies and rare figurines. Funko pops are available on their basement floor for $9.99 for the most part. The prices are reasonable. I don't know anything about collectibles, so I'm not sure what the pricing ranges are, but there are plenty of options. Almost single item is extremely rare; any that I had previously seen were extremely rare. No, it's not just about Japanese anime; rather, it's an eclectic mix of quirky toys and memorabilia. They offered a great range of fascinating stuff on both the upstairs and downstairs levels. The staff is friendly and eager to assist. This is the place to go if you're seeking one-of-a-kind gifts for yourself or those who enjoy science fiction, anime, or Japanese-themed toys and collectibles. One of my favorite aspects of the store is that it feels like a museum when you go in. I could easily spend an entire day at this store. Unpackaged toys are stacked to the ceiling in closed display cases, and stacks of cartons fill the walls.

  • Nuyorican Poets Cafe is the place to be if you're looking for spoken word, nice energy, and amazing poetry! If you recall HBO's "Def Poetry Jam," you'll know exactly what I'm talking about; it's the same thing, except in a smaller environment. Although I usually attend on Friday nights, activities are held on other days of the week; it's just that Friday nights are "slam" nights and usually the most enjoyable. It was my sister's first visit, and she thoroughly enjoyed herself! The host's name was "Jive Poetic," and he'd been here for a while—I recall seeing him when I first came here. The crowd and poems are quite diverse, with people of different ethnicities, ages, and genders participating. The topics can range from a poem about "Bus Bae" (a poem about an attractive man seen on the bus with a young woman) to a poem on being a Muslim woman in society. Someone even recited a poem that insulted someone else and caused them to leave the room. Please note that people of "all" races come here to express themselves—nothing is meant to offend anyone—just it's a matter of perspective.

  • If you're looking for a fun, instagrammable area in the city, you've found it! My friend told me about the Color Factory, and we decided to go try it out on a Sunday evening. I felt it was a bit pricy at first, but I found a 30% discount code that made it feel more affordable. This place makes you feel like a kid again! You can't turn around once you've moved on to the next room/activity because it's a one-way display. Each chamber offers a unique color experience. Highlights included a confetti area, a ball pit, and a disco dance floor! The most appealing feature is most likely the extremely Instagrammable settings. When you enter the factory, you are given a QR code that you must keep with you at all times. You scan your QR code in each room to take a picture in each setting. Oh, and there are colorful, fun treats all about the "factory"! Mochi, macarons, popcorn, sweets, gelato, and more were available! Overall, I'd suggest this location and would return with friends. If you're searching for something unusual to do in NYC, this is the place to go.

  • Just wanted to let people know about an easy way to get outside and enjoy some fresh air this year. One of my favorite weekday workouts is to grab one of the Citi Bike rental bikes over in Williamsburg and take a bike across the bridge. There’s plenty of space for cyclists and those also looking to go for a brief walk. It’s pretty level, so you don’t need to strain too hard, and the view is great. It’s such a wonderful way to catch an underappreciated view in Williamsburg! You can ride around for quite some time, and even ride up to Domino Park if you want to enjoy some good people watching. I would recommend you wear good shoes, and maybe bring a water bottle. You can make the ride as short or as long as you want, and with the Citi Bikes, you really can take it all pretty easy. I would always recommend a helmet, as well, just for some extra safety!
