Though many people are traveling this weekend, staying in NYC over a holiday weekend definitely has its perks! Namely, the fact that the city is excessively less congested meaning you can indulge in many of your favorite pastimes (i.e. eating) without the hassle of dealing with overcrowding or waiting in line. You gaze in awe at all the time slots available on opentable, and you snatch up reservations the same way people snatch up power ball tickets.
