A little snow is fine, but when it’s really coming down out there it can seem like the entire city has come to a grinding halt. But don’t let some bad weather ruin your trip to the world’s greatest city, instead use the always-warm subway to visit some places that are perfect for spending the day indoors.
It goes without saying that museums are an excellent place to spend a snow-heavy day. Uptown, on the Upper East Side, there are several world-class art museums awaiting to be explored. The Guggenheim and Whitney Museum of American Art are two good choices, but to spend an entire day in one museum visit the Metropolitan Museum of Art. This museum is so large that it usually takes several days and visits to see its entire collection and all of its exhibitions. There’s even a cafeteria inside the museum, so visitors don’t have to leave for lunch.
On the other side of the park, on the Upper West Side, the American Museum of Natural History is another interesting choice for snow-dodging visitors. Families will be especially interested, as this museum wows visitors with its huge collection of dinosaur skeletons, IMAX movies and planetarium.
The Museum of Modern Art or MOMA in Midtown is another option, as this museum is home to a huge collection of contemporary art and can easily keep the attention of visitors for several hours at least.
At night head over to the Theater District to watch a Broadway Play. There are dozens on at any one time and there are performances almost every night of the week. Some long-running favorites include The Lion King, Jersey Boys and Mamma Mia.
For the less culturally inclined, catching a sports game is another way to spend a snowy evening. The New York Knicks, Brooklyn Nets and New York Rangers are three teams that play inside warm arenas in the city.
After your long day avoiding the cold and snow it’s time to return to our warm boutique hotel, The MAve, for a restful night’s sleep.
