Welcome to The New York Escapist! This blog is designed for escapists of all kinds - outdoor enthusiasts, art lovers, foodies, borough explorers and people who love the idea of getting on a train or subway and ending up somewhere they've never been before, in or out of NYC.
We all love lazy weekends in New York, full of brunches and shopping and catching up on the DVR list, but sometimes crave a little more adventure. There are tons of hidden gems in NYC, and also on the outskirts where you can forget about screeching taxis, weekend subway disruptions and forty-five minute brunch waits.
I am writing this blog to prompt myself to find more escapes in and out of NYC. I hope you are able to enjoy some of these escapes, and I would love to hear tips from readers as well!
