It may seem pointless to go all the way to Brooklyn for pizza when a perfectly good Pugsley’s slice is right outside the gates, but Juliana’s offers a truly unique and bonafide New York City experience. It was named the best pizza in the country by TripAdvisor in 2015, and for good reason. DUMBO is an amazing place to explore regardless, especially if you take the East River Ferry there.

Sky Zone Trampoline Park
33 Lecount Place, New Rochelle, NY 10801
As February begins, New Year’s resolutions become a thought drifting away in the rear-view mirror. Stay true to your commitment to exercise while simultaneously beating weekend boredom by breaking a sweat in a trampoline park. It is a surprisingly difficult workout, though you might not realize it until your sore muscles kick in the next day. Take the Metro North New Haven line to the New Rochelle stop.
828 Broadway, Manhattan, NY 10003
Book lovers, rejoice! Strand is a New York classic, just outside Union Square. The bookstore boasts 18 miles of books: enough to keep you busy for hours in escape of the cold and in need for an addictive read. We will only judge a bit if you just go in to buy one of their iconic tote bags (okay, we will judge a lot).
