It’s vacation time again! Soon, anyway. I’ll be in New York for a few days at the end of June, and I’m looking for suggestions for things to do. Last time I did this I was accompanied by Marian and some friends who had never been to New York before, so lots of standard tourist stuff was on the agenda. This time I’m on my own, so I’d be interested in ideas that are a little off the beaten path. This worked pretty well last time, so I thought I’d ask readers for suggestions again.

Not that the usual stuff is off limits. I’m definitely going to spend a few hours at MOMA. I haven’t been there in ages and my hotel is right nearby. And I’ve never been to the Bronx Zoo. Is it worth a visit if the weather isn’t too bad? Or maybe a Yankees game at the new stadium if I can find someone who wants to go with me. Beyond that, though, I have no plans. What should I do and what should I eat while I’m there?

THE TRUTH...

is the first thing despots go after. An unwavering commitment to it is probably what draws you to Mother Jones' journalism. And as we're seeing in the US and the world around, authoritarians seek to poison the discourse and the way we relate to each other because they can't stand people coming together around a shared sense of the truth—it's a huge threat to them.

Which is also a pretty great way to describe Mother Jones' mission: People coming together around the truth to hold power accountable.

And right now, we need to raise about $400,000 from our online readers over the next two months to hit our annual goal and make good on that mission. Read more about the information war we find ourselves in and how people-powered, independent reporting can and must rise to the challenge—and please support our team's truth-telling journalism with a donation if you can right now.
