Is NYC still the city that doesn't sleep?

Heading to Long Island but arrive at LaGuardia on Sunday afternoon. We'll spend Sunday night in Manhattan and head out to Long Island on Monday night. What should we expect on Sunday night? Do things shut down at 6 or 8pm like the rest of the country? Thanks for any insight.

The day NYC shut down at 6 or 8 PM would be the day it stopped being NYC. Here is a thread from a few days ago with basically the same question.

Are you kidding - 24/7 is the norm in NYC - bars have to shut down for an hour or so and than can reopen - you a'int in El Paso, Dorothy!

Close at 6 or 8 - some people don't start going "out" until 10/11.................what gave you that idea?

Even old age homes are open until midnight..

Some streets are impassable in the East Village and Lower East Side at 2 AM.

I remember when I used to go out on Sunday to a reggae club and we didn't get there until 12am-ish....Stayed out until 4-5am. Then went to get breakfast....

I remember my first night in NYC. I was jet lagged and couldn't sleep so looked out the window at 4.00am. 9th Avenue was full of taxis and cars and had lots of people about. I couldn't believe it. "The city that never sleeps" is so true.
