Would love to get input of local NYC players on this.

I made the transition away from night game entirely and my mind/body is so much the better for it. In bed by 10/11 most nights and up by 6 to get some meditation/podcasting and workout in before starting the day.

Also, morning sex > sloppy 2AM post-club/bar sex. Dude, believe it. Stronger boners, better control, y'all were gonna hafta shower anyways, etc... Great way to start the day. Save your nights for romantic shit or other events, aka just recharge the batteries.

If I was in any other city and if it was a different stage of my life I'd have quit nightlife a while ago. Luckily I am starting to work out five days a week so I can keep it up. That's the thing about NYC, nightlife here is something special. I am still at the point of wanting to explore and not miss out but starting to also realize this is why so many guys washout of night game.

The hangovers, low sleep, whiskey dick, bitch shields all the way up, most people going out with social circles, girls being rude for the shits and giggles, cover charge for top tier venues, etc. I still have my own axe to grind with nightlife though and it does offer its own set of experiences worth the story.

I go for nightlife more for the fun and experiences but day drinking has led to way more quality and results.

RE: New York City
I am hoping I am not becoming too old but dammit I have to admit it guys, just cannot do the packed bars in the city anymore for night game. The music trying to make you deaf, half of the girls are barely legal it seems, cockblocking all too common, and forget having anything that resembles a conversation. I am starting to find that I am better off in a rooftop or more chill places where you can actually hear people.

Anyone want to PM me some suggestions perhaps?

West Village has its spots especially with the Meatpacking District so close by.

I've gone through this recently too. I would say that it's not "getting old", it's maturing and becoming more refined in your tastes.

Those types of bars that you mention are really only good for caveman game unless you're with your circle and making moves within it. I still go to them occasionally, just not every weekend like in the past. And I'm all good with that.

One option that I would consider [occasionally] if you have the funds and the group to go along with it: bottle service at a club/lounge. Although many seem to think that this is equivalent to soft P4P (I obviously disagree), this can be a great way to combine the upsides of a really popping venue (lots of options, strong energy) with the upsides of a quieter spot (easier to hear, good logistics). And it isn't much more expensive than a typical night out when you split it a few ways. When done every once in a while, it can lead to an incredible time.

RE: New York City
Not going to experiment with bottle service yet, glad everyone named a few spots though.

This is where the catch 22 of it all comes in though.

I really hate those kinds of packed spots, especially as I get older, but at the same time it seems like a lot of hot prime women or the kinds of girls that will go home with you that night are usually at those spots. My only exception has been with Gansevort but that was a lot of luck and timing there. It also seems like, unless I am being oblivious to something, that the quality is higher in those sorts of spots while the more chill spots have older women who want a "date", girls hunting for an LTR, or women just there to chill with their circle of friends.

Might take the advice of checking out some cougar bars that a member told me about.

Ideally:

ONS availability + chill enough vibe where I can hear shit = Winning situation

What's the area around Barclays Center/Atlantic Avenue called? Park Slope? If so, that's where I saw a ton of cute girls the other day. The area seemed a bit sketchy though, like half-ghetto and half-hipster. Worth checking out anyway.

In other words, it's an overpriced shithole (even by New York standards).

RE: New York City
New York is a great city I wish I could move there just to improv my game, but the cost-of-living makes that possibility very untenable. The Parks are just full of people if the weather is half decent. The museums have a lot of hot women in them. The older I get now the more and more turned off I get about the possibility of living there. The subway can't run on time, the degeneracy, and the winter.

RE: New York City
If one is interested in gaming mostly European, Middle Eastern, Jewish, and North African chicks in NYC, where’s the best place to party? Mediterranean features is mostly what I’m after, tan/olive skin and dark, luscious hair.

Also into Latinas, but I like South American latinas more than Central American ones. Colombians, Venzuelans, Argentinians vs. Hondureñas and Nicaraguans, for example.

Brooklyn sounds like my vibe in terms of the warehouse parties and the house music scene, but I get the sense that it’s also getting more expensive. Also not a huge fan of the whole “hipster” vibe, I like my girls to be in shape and not have a lot of tattoos.

I hear places like Queens and Astoria don’t have the high cost of living that is associated with Manhattan and Brooklyn. But how are they in terms of nightlife (house and techno clubs), ethnic diversity, ease of getting around with public transport?

How are the other boroughs for gaming? Do you still need a car to get around? Easy to hook up with girls of different races even when live in a different neighborhood and have to get on the subway to meet up?

Curious about NYC. COL and shitty winter weather dampens my enthusiasm about the place. Have only been to the ritzy part of the lower east side and Randall’s island. Both times I was visiting very wealthy friends whose lifestyles are unrealistic for me to replicate untiI I am in my 40s.

Don’t want to live in glorified shoe box in my 30s...would rather have a decent apartment, but I don’t want to get roommates or work 90 hours a week and not be able to enjoy the nightlife there.

I am a fan of Chicago, though. Saw the most beautiful Serbian girl of my life there last week....the ass was phat...

Which direction? Southeast of the arena is Park Slope, which is mostly yuppie families and some longtime residents. That place is definitely not ghetto, hipster, or run down.

Maybe you're thinking of Fort Greene, which is technically the location of the arena and the area to the east and northeast. There's a cool park and the neighborhood has gentrified heavily (Spike Lee has an office in the neighborhood). Maybe you were walking on Fulton St., which is one of the main drags (the other being Myrtle Ave.).

RE: New York City
Can anyone suggest a good area to live in as fresh 22 year old college grad. I work in mid-town, and am currently crashing with a friend in new jersey. My budget is $1300 max for a room. I just saw a room in bushwick today and while the apartment was nice the area was a bit of shithole, but I didn't really explore the area while there.

$1300 is a tiny budget even for a room in NYC.

Bushwick is probably where you'll land.
Or somewhere in greater Brooklyn.
Prospect Heights/Park Slope is alright, I paid about that for a room. It's a little easier to get to Manhattan from that area.

If I had to do it all over again, I woulda stayed in Brooklyn and saved the cash rather than moving to Manhattan and paying out the ass... especially being in Prospect Heights where you can get to Union Square or Downtown easily on the Subway.

In NYC as a young guy with a tight budget you're either going to have a shitty apartment or live in a shitty area or more likely both. Make a choice on that...

Appreciate the insight. I have the budget for more, but I'm not trying to blow my whole paycheck on rent, for the same reason you mentioned.

Seeing I'll probably end up in the Bushwick/Brooklyn area does anyone have any recommendations for nightlife/meeting girls and meeting other people in the area (daytime social stuff).

Honestly, if you explore that area you'll find a good mix of venues. Brooklyn does neighborhood bars really well - a lot of them are better than what I had in Manhattan, more chill, easier to interact with people. The only downside is the better weekend scene is definitely in Williamsburg, which would be a haul from Prospect Heights, maybe a little easier from Bushwick... Union Square and the surrounding scene, which includes some classier venues, is a very possible weekend getaway though from Prospect Heights...

Nonetheless, you've got a lot of cool cocktail bars to explore and I've had great interactions there. It's a little less hipster if you go down toward Park Slope... Great food and markets in that area.

1300 is doable in Manhattan if you're down for a roommate. For that price point, your best bets for a decent apartment would be in Hells Kitchen / Fidi, or near Columbia.

RE: New York City
I visited NYC for the first time after about 18 years for the July 4th weekend. For perspective, I'm 31 now, so I don't remember much the last time around. I have also lived in Chicago downtown for the past 7 years.

Initial impressions:

NEGATIVES
Extremely crowded, full of tourists and homeless people.

Trash everywhere, absolutely filthy and smells like shit just about everywhere. Streets are incredibly dirty. Surprising that people pay so much and tolerate this.

Lines for everything. Spent 30 minutes waiting to use a Starbucks bathroom. Stood in line 30 minutes for a slice of pizza.

Extremely piss poor air quality. Driving along one of the outer roads near the coast with the windows down, seemed like I was inhaling factory smoke.

Everything is insanely overpriced. Spent $40 for a single pizza (8 square slices).

Was very surprised that I didn't see too many hot women. I thought there would be 9s walking around damn near everywhere, I hardly saw any. I was in DC right before NYC and the amount of hot women there were insane. Ridiculously good quality.

It's very difficult to get around. Spent hundreds of dollars on ubers.

POSITIVES
No other city has this amount of energy. Opportunity to meet tons of people and sleep with tons of women. Variety of restaurants. No single city that I know of has more amounts of culture, history, things to do.


Bottom line, it made me very thankful for what I have in Chicago. No way I would ever move to NYC, unless I had tons of money.

RE: New York City
If you're saying "everything is overpriced", you were in the wrong places. Based on your descriptions, you stuck to Midtown or the more touristy parts of Manhattan. And the fact that you just used Uber to get around when the city has one of the largest subway systems in the world is rather baffling.

Also, if you think the air quality in NYC is bad, then you'll suffocate in a second if you ever visit Mexico City.

Yeah man -- were you hanging around Midtown? Did you do ANY research at all?

Did you go below 14th Street?

To the Hudson River piers and new parks and paths? The East River new parks and paths?

Sounds like you wasted much of your trip doing low-effort newb type stuff and getting caught up in a boomer tourist's itinerary, hah.

Gets me salty...
