New York City can be a wonderful place in which to live and work. Here are a handful of Web sites that can let you know what's in store for you in the city:
Updated daily, this is a comprehensive guide to everything that's New York City. There are sections on movies, restaurants, events, arts & music, places to go, sports, and nightlife. There's a "Street Fair Alert," a "Weekend Planner," and an online Ticket-buying function.
DigitalCity New York
Like Sidewalk, DigitalCity New York aspires to provide residents and visitors with a comprehensive "how to" guide to living, working, and having fun in the City. Includes sections on local news, real estate, dining, movies, etc., and offers a chat area, as well. The Citywise section gives you access to subway maps, driving directions, and news on sales and bargains.
Another all-purpose City site, TheNYCInsider offers sections on Daily Survival, Saving a Few Bucks ("Tips on how you can enjoy the best our city has to offer, without going broke in the process"), and an Insider Tips Exchange bulletin board on "how to get the most out of the city." They also include such features as "4 Ways to Find a No Fee Apartment" and a guide to Manhattan Coffee Bars. Their Links and Misc, Links pages are especially good.
CultureFinder publishes regular CF Guides to the City's Theater, Classical Music, Opera, Visual Arts, and Dance. There are also features on film, interviews with leading personalities in the arts, and specials such as "The New York City Ballet at 50."
The New York Times on the Web
Little introduction is necessary here; the Gray Lady on the Web requires registration, but after that all the content is free.
The City Naturalist
Did you know that there are over 300 species of birds in New York City, and 150 indigenous species of plants? That Central Park is one of the best bird-watching spots in the nation? All true; you can learn a great deal about the wild life in the City at this site, which includes spring, summer, fall, and winter Nature Guides and a Calendar of Events.
No guide to New York City sites would be really helpful that neglected shopping. So while you'll probably make plenty of trips to these famous Department stores, it's worth visiting them online as well. Both sites offer online shopping and personal shopping services - at Macy's it's "e-ssentials" and at Bloomingdale's it's "At His/Her Service."
