The New York Times has been in the business for a long, long time. It's safe to say their people know the ins and outs of the five boroughs pretty well. That's more than enough reason to check out their app: NYTimes The Scoop. It's a guide brought to you by the NY Times staff members that covers their favorite bars, restaurants, stores, performances, outings and other NYC experiences. You can keep track of your visits by checking off their list when you're done. Don't expect The Scoop to just give you traditional places to go: For example, under the section 'Only in NY', you might stumble across their suggestion to see New York's unofficial graffiti museum, the 5 Pointz Aerosol Art Center in Long Island City.
