The Grand Central Terminal Whispering Spot
There’s an archway outside the famous Oyster Bar & Restaurant in the dining concourse of Grand Central Terminal. It’s true that if two people stand at opposite ends of the arch, they can hear each other. This sort of architecture is called a “whispering gallery.” There are many marriage proposals that happen here so don’t be surprised if you see one when you visit.
Fragment of the Berlin Wall, 520 Madison Ave.
A secret place in NYC that’s actually not from NYC? Pretty rare. Check out this hunk of the Berlin Wall. There’s a five-panel segment of the Wall inside the lobby of 520 Madison Avenue, just around the corner from the Museum of Modern Art. This is actually one of the largest sections of the wall that’s still intact. It was purchased by Real Estate mogul Jerry Speyer, right from the East German government. It was originally placed outside, but then later moved into the lobby to protect it from the elements. Good news is that the lobby is open 24/7 to the public so you can stop by and visit anytime you want!
There aren't many places in NYC where you can find a good meal under $10. Cheeky Sandwiches is the place to go. Everything there is under $10 and the desserts are even less. If you’re looking for delicious food at an even better price, you need to check it out. They’re famous for their chicken sandwich. Fried chicken, buttermilk biscuit, coleslaw, and gravy, sounds unbelievably good.

The Mulberry Project
“The subterranean speakeasy boasts an elaborate street art collection, paying homage to the popular renegade culture of New York City. Highlighting the back-bar stands a bright crimson mural created by veteran artist Kurtis Kulig (aka LoveMe) drawing attention to the venue’s focal point-the bar- transforming it into a “stage” for cocktail craftsmanship. Towards the back of the room stands the DJ booth, featuring state of the art equipment and the world-renowned DJS rotating nightly to set the mood for patrons.
Our full menu is served out there as well as fun frozen drinks and pitchers of all of our bespoke cocktails. It’s the perfect place for a calming after work cocktail, a little garden dinner party or a romantic date under the stars.”
