SportsHosts has made that not only really easy, but really fun – by connecting visitors with local fans to experience live sports together.

There couldn’t be a better city to do all of that in, than New York City, right? With SportsHosts, meeting locals is accessible to anyone, and FREE to use! Can you believe it?

Sure everyone can buy a ticket and go watch a game. But, only watching with a passionate local fan as a host will give you a real understanding of the culture, the players, the rules and what to look for during the game.

BOOK NOW!


How it works?

You can scroll through the different upcoming games and hosts that are available on the website, get in touch with them, ask your questions, and purchase your tickets with your seats right next to your host!

There are plenty of spots for pre-game drinks around stadiums, but who better than a local fan can suggest the best places to meet up?

So, once you walk into the stadium you will realize there is more to going to a game than just the on-field action. Soak it all in, and ask your host, she/he will be the best to explain what is happening, and what to look for.

Once the game starts, be ready to cheer (A LOT!), this is an immersion as a local fan! Just fill your lungs and let it all out!

New York is known for being a real concrete jungle, but today I’m going to show you some of the most amazing outdoor activities you never thought about doing in New York! So, see below how to explore NYC in a different way!

People come to New York and end up doing the most common activities and experiences like visiting famous landmarks, restaurants, bars, shopping, museums and galleries, etc. But, not everyone knows the different and pretty special outdoor activities you can though out the city.

I decided to show you 3 of them for you to try out! From customized picnics at the park, to horseback riding and jet skiing in the Hudson River, I’m sure you’re going to have a fantastic time!

So many people come to NY and tell me that they’d love to have a picnic at the park. They see so many locals having fun and they want the same experience, but don’t know where to start from or don’t have time to plan it all.

In addition, going to Central Park can be an overwhelming experience due to all the tourists roaming around. But, going to Central Park, with the right information of the best hidden spots for a delicious, unique picnic, can be priceless!

Plus, it’s also a great idea for a special celebration or a romantic afternoon at the park!

Well, we love this experience, so do many of our private and corporate clients, and we’ve written about it before!

You will definitely have a great time! There are countless different options to choose from so contact us for more information and to book the experience!


Horseback Riding

BTSNYC Experiences On Going Outdoor Activities Horseback Riding Central Park

Yes! You can do horseback riding at Central Park too! Different from the carriages that over work the horses, our partner takes really good care of them.

Each horse works a maximum of 6hours a day and are transported to the park properly.

The tours are 1 hour long and pass by the most beautiful spots in the park from Strawberry Fields, where the John Lennon memorial is, to the Reservoir and other special spots.

If you have kids, it’s also a great activity since they have 10min pony rides. Little ones should be 2 years old at least and the guide is beside them all the time.

I rode Oscar, a huge, beautiful, white horse and had a great time exploring Central Park through another angle.

I had heard before that people could rent a jet ski, hop on and enjoy the Hudson River! But, I had never really tried it.

Well, I finally decided to be brave and go try it out, after all, how cool is it to actually ride a jet ski on this famous river?!

We got the ferry at a downtown spot, ride beside the 9/11 Memorial and head to a Marina on the Jersey side. It’s only 15min away from Manhattan. Super quick and seamless.

Each way costs $8/person and ferries leave quite frequently, so don’t worry.

There are 2 types of rides, a shorter one that covers mostly Midtown Manhattan and downtown, and the 2.5h ride that you actually drive around the entire Manhattan island. So cool!

I had a great time! The view is truly spectacular, it’s a priceless experience and the Hudson water is quite, by the way!

Contact us for more information and to book the experience!

Here Died Warhol: A Sensational Experience by Eugenio Merino

Culture Music Here Died Warhol by Eugenio Merino Installation

Visit Andy Warhol’s body in Chelsea! “Here Died Warhol” is a sensational experience created by the Spanish artist, Eugenio Merino. Be ready to see a life-size hyperrealistic sculpture of Warhol’s body in an immersive installation!

Culture Music Here Died Warhol by Eugenio Merino

Andy Warhol was one of the most well-known names when talking about pop art!

The American artist was also a renowned producer and director, and has a studio in NYC called The Factory. Want to know a cool fact? The 1st location of the studio, in Midtown Manhattan, costed him only $100 rent/year in the early 1960’s!

His works are shown worldwide and through July 9th, you’ll be able to see Here Died Warhol, at the Unix Gallery.


Most know him for his films and painting, but Warhol has another entire list of works that ranged from photography and audio, to theater, fashion and culture.

Starting April 26, it will be possible to visit Andy Warhol’s body in Chelsea, New York. Here Died Warhol is a sensational experience that takes the visitor around New York City.

It follows Andy Warhol’s footsteps from his artistic beginnings to the glamorous and iconic places he frequented. The late artist’s body will lie in state at UNIX Gallery, through June 9th, 2018.

Here Died Warhol is an immersive installation by Spanish artist Eugenio Merino featuring a life-size hyperrealistic sculpture of Andy Warhol accompanied by a black granite gravestone. There is a functioning souvenir shop (including T-shirts, postcards, mugs).

And, a self-guided tour map of Warhol’s essential haunts (like his first New York residence and The Factory) complete Eugenio Merino the installation.

The intimacy of Merino’s sculpture in the gallery punctuates the cultural tourist’s experience as they contemplate the art and popularity of Warhol’s legacy.

Curated by the Málaga-based collective Los Interventores, Here Died Warhol explores the curiosity and motivation of Adjectival Tourism. In this case, it is a paired fascination with Warhol’s explosive célébrité and an innate curiosity about death close-up (like visitors to the Paris Morgue in the late 1800s).

Resonating with tourists and gallery visitors alike, the exhibition gives a full understanding of the city and artist that helped shape each other.

The installation is a sharp critique of the mass tourism and the cultural industry of the city-brand.  It examines the clash between the rise of tourist attractions and the needs of the local population; where real is replaced by a false setting targeted at the visitor.

Here Died Warhol is the definitive opportunity to take a selfie with the artist. Plus, acquire those objects created to capitalize on the essence of the most famous Pop Art visionary; the sale of the artist ́s aura.

The hyperrealism of Merino’s sculpture highlights this conflict between the genuine and the fake within the tourist experience.

This frustration transforms the city into a commodified space intended primarily for leisure and consumerism.

Here Died Warhol follows on the success of Aquí Murió Picasso (Here Died Picasso), which in 2017 attracted more than 20,000 visitors to the Alliance Française in Málaga.

For the duration of the exhibition, it became a must-see tourist experience in the capital of La Costa del Sol.


About Eugenio Merino:

Born in 1975 in Spain, Eugenio Merino graduated from the Complutense University of Madrid. Merino had his first US museum show at the Station Museum of Contemporary Art (Houston) in October 2015.

In addition, the artist has had numerous solo and group exhibitions and has participated in a variety of art fairs. These includes: Volta NY, Volta Basel, ARCO (Madrid), Art Brussels, FIAC (Paris), Armory Show, Arte Fiera (Bologna), Art BO (Bogota), MACO (Mexico), Art Wynwood (Miami) and has exhibited in the MOCA Museum of Taipei and the B.P.S.22 in Charleroi (Belgium).


Date: Through June 9th, 2018
Hours: Tuesday – Saturday: 10am – 6pm
Location: UNIX Gallery – 532 West 24th Street

Curiosities Our Bucket List 10 Life Saving Hacks To Travel Around NYC Subway APP Joshua Newton

Some subway cars aren’t yet updated to show the next upcoming stops/transfers so use your phone to navigate where to get off.

You can catch a cellphone signal in between some stops, but play it safe with having it already on your phone. This way, you don’t get lost or have to hover over someone to check the subway car map.

And still, if you’re more into tech-hacks, just download an APP called “New York Subway MTA MAP”. It’s works with no wifi too!


#3 Bring a selfie stick

It may seem like such a tourist thing to do, but if you don’t want to bother a busy New Yorker to take your picture, then this is the best way to snap a quick pic!

Which one we recommend? Try the one from DJI, named Osmo Mobile 2.

Also, for inspiration, follow Fomofeed to find all the cool free NYC instagram-worthy shots.

This is crucial, especially because with pictures and social media, your battery will drain in no time. You’ll be out and about all day in New York, so be sure you buy a phone charger so you stay plugged in all day – most will be under $30 and well worth it!

But we love the Mophie products, even though they are a bit more expensive. They have a (RED) Collection where “a portion of the proceeds from every (PRODUCT)RED™ purchase will go to the Global Fund to fight AIDS in Africa”.

NYC is well-known for their delicious hot dog stands and roasted peanuts, but be careful with where you choose to eat! You might have a bad time during your trip if you pick the wrong one!

Located inside an old weaving factory in TriBeCa, Aire Ancient Baths is an experience you’ll never forget! Most likely, you’ll get addicted to it!

As we’ve all studied in History class, in ancient Greece and Rome, fancy banquets were organized for special guests with sessions to thermal baths. These public thermal baths were hosted inside beautiful palaces and were considered special rituals.

Aire Ancient Baths offers a variety of water induced relaxation sessions ranging from the hottest water at 102ºF, to the super cold water pools that can go down below 46ºF. Definitely, for the brave!

There are also steaming rooms that are intensified by aromatherapy and propeller jet baths at 97ºF for pre massage sessions.

Plus, salt water pools at 100ºF that is one of the most sought after baths because of its ability to induce mental relaxation, and much more!

We love their newest treatment called Red Wine Baths. We all know that grapes are huge antioxidants.

Extracted from the Matarromera winery in Spain, the treatment starts with 30 minutes inside a tub with tempranillo grapes concentrates. While in the tub, you’ll receive a scalp massage, as well as a facial massage. The best!

Then, you’ll head to a full body massage with grape seed oil that will do wonders for your body regarding hydration.

And wait! It’s still not over! You will still indulge yourself into another 90-minute Thermal Session in their different baths.

This experience lasts 180 minutes. Have fun!!!

Prices per person:
Monday – Thursday: $450
Friday, Saturday & Sunday: $550

If you go there later in the afternoon, you can take an additional set of clothes and head straight for dinner. Since you are at the upscale TriBeCa neighborhood, you might want to try Bouley’s kitchens.

Last, we work with highly customized and strategic corporate services with small, medium and large companies. We’ve organized, in the past, some very exclusive experiences ta Aire Ancient Baths.

If this is something you’re looking for, let us organize it for you and you team.

Saturday & Sunday: 8am – 11pm
