Top 10 sights in New York
1. Central Park
Whether it is a hot dog, ice skating, jogging or a romantic picnic that you are looking for, the park that is nested in the heart of Manhattan, will most certainly deliver.
2. Empire State Building
Situated right on the ever-so popular Fifth avenue, The Empire State Building is one of the tallest constructions of the big apple. An iconic symbol of the city and it definitely ranks amongst the first three on the “Ideal locations for a marriage proposal” list.
3. Wall Street
When talking about money, stocks and people in suits, placed in an American context our minds automatically wanders to Wall Street. The famous financial centre is something you cannot miss out upon visiting New York.
Former artist’s district which over the years turned into ‘The place’ for shopping. The area offers a wide selection of stores and boutiques and in a way makes it easier to understand why New York women need credit cards so much.
The most densely populated borough of New York, situated on the other side of the infamous ‘Brooklyn bridge’. From a ‘Manhattan’ point of view Brooklyn is considered to be the poor step-brother, from an ‘outsider’ point of view, it is more like the cool, up and coming neighbourhood that is home of some of the hottest places of the city.
6. 9/11 Memorial
The name of the memorial speaks for itself. Walk down memory lane and pay your respects to the victims.
7. Sex & The City Hotspots Tour
Walk in the oh-so fancy shoes of the four ladies that took the world by storm when Sex and The City first aired. During the tour you will get to discover the spots where some of the most iconic scenes took place.
8. Times Square
Needs no introduction, anyone who has ever been to New York has taken a photo or recorded a video of themselves standing amongst the blinding amount of commercial displays. But who am I kidding? I would take tons of photos too..
9. Guggenheim Museum
Guggenheim Museum has an impressive collection of art, but what makes this construction remarkable is the unique design of it.
10. Rockefeller Center
This commercial giant is mostly known for its ice skating ring and its Christmas tree which have been in the background of countless movies.
