City Pulse

By Willette Francis


You’re looking for a special gift for someone (or a special way to treat yourself), but you’re wondering what to give the New Yorker who has everything? You call them a lucky bastard and curse them for their good fortune (I’m only kidding…a little).Instead, make their dream day a wish come true. Is it water rafting? Having a chef cook a three course meal at home? All that and more can be had for a pretty small or large penny on

Peruse this website’s experiences in the New York area and you will find an unlimited selection of things to do in the Big Apple. For the thrill seeker chicks that crave the adrenaline rush of possible death, choose an activity from the action & adventure category. Rafting on the Hudson can satisfy their thrill seeking needs. Not a thrill seeker? Don’t sweet it girlie. Maybe, something from the health & fitness or style & living is more your speed. Finally, get that personal trainer or have a make -up instruction to create a fall look. Of course, I can’t forget about the foodies and wine connoisseurs. Check out the list of things to do in the wine & gourmet category. Have a romantic dinner for two, personal chef meal service, or brunch on a yacht. If none of that is appealing… (That’s absolutely impossible) then try one of these unbelievable, out of this world ta-dah! experiences from the unique & unusual section. In this section, you’ll find the choices of a pet spa day with limo or become a fighter pilot for a day. These are a few of the unique & unusual activities for a unique and unusual person.

The website updates their experiences, so there’s always a selection of different and exciting things to do.
