Goings On: The New Yorker
An informed cultural guide to one of the greatest cities in the world
Goings On is your guide to everything happening in New York, courtesy of the staff at The New Yorker, and it’s packed full of great suggestions for things to do. You can choose ‘Critics’ Pick’ to see recommendations, or search by the date or location. Further options allow you to look for things nearby or in a specific neighbourhood, or you can manually input a location.
It takes a while to load initially, but this is dependent on your connection, and once it’s up and running, it’s smooth and easy to get around. The sketched graphics make it a pleasure to look at, and the information regarding each event or place is informative and concise. The restaurant reviews are by the paper’s Table for Two columnists, so the recommendations come from those who are well informed about the city.
There are plenty of extra features, too, such as the ability to call venues from within the app, buy tickets and look on a map to see where the venue is. You can also tap to see more information about the place, such as the address and what else is going on there. Throw in audio tours, details of future events and the writers pointing you towards their personal favourite places, and you have a comprehensive app.
Being a free product, it does contain ads, but they are small and unobtrusive. It’s certainly a handy app for New Yorkers and visitors to have around, and while simple, it’s a great guide that could help you find exciting things to do.
A reliable and useful app that supplies you with all the information you need to explore New York’s culture and entertainment.
