It really is the city that never sleeps and welcomes you with open arms. If you find yourself in New York City (especially in the summer) you’ll never be lost of things to do. If you’re planning to do the more tourist aspects of the city, make sure you prepare where you’re going and book in advance as places can get busy especially at peak seasonal months!
A few Must See’s :
The Top of The Rock – Rockerfella Centre ( Also a great Ice ring in the winter months)
One World Trade Centre – The Twin Tower foundation waterfalls
Statue of Liberty
Grand Central Station
The High Line
New York is easy to walk but will be quite a distance so it would be best to grab a map and organise your days by district. If you’re around the Central Park area, don’t forget to go in and have a walk around. There’s plenty of green space to have a picnic and lots of street performers to watch! Head over to strawberry fields to pay tribute to John Lennon or when the snow falls head over and skate on the rink just like so many of your favourite movies (*Serendipity*). If you’re into your art, head over to the Metropolitan Museum of art for some inspiration, (or sit on the steps like B and S, xoxo gossip girl) or if you’re a TV and film fan, make your way to the Bethesda fountain, famously in the ‘Friends’ opening!
If you’re downtown, check out the famous flatiron building that sits outside ‘Eataly’ – a perfect little Italian market to purchase the best pasta and ice cream in town! If you’re still in the mood for Italian food, head further downtown and find Rubirose’s pizza! The perfect little pizza spot hidden on a side street, perfect for a date night in the city. If desert is calling, make sure you head to ‘Cookie Do’ and get a cone full of, well, cookie dough!
If you’re in New York in the winter months, make sure you check off some food spots to get out of the bitter cold! Westway Diner is a perfect little pancake stop close enough to time square if you want to continue shopping! ‘By Chloe’ has a few locations over Manhattan and is perfect for healthy guilt free treats! If you missed a chance to see a Broadway show, head to the Stardust Diner and eat your dinner while listening to some AMAZING singers who also happen to be your waiters!
This is such a short little what to do in NYC but hopefully somewhat handy if you’re short on time!
