New York City has something for everyone: the artsy, outdoor enthusiasts, fashionistas, foodies, music lovers, misfits, history buffs and the list goes on. We put together a photo essay of some of New York’s highlights. These are just some of the places you can hit as a first time visitor to New York but you can also revisit time and time again as you make your way back to this amazing city.
Start your visit in Harlem and visit the beautiful Cathedral of St. John the Divine.
Take the subway from Harlem to Manhattan and visit the Guggenheim Museum and Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Walk to Central Park for a well deserved break. Central Park is more than just a park. It a venue for performance artists, an outdoor museum and nature haven. If you’re lucky to visit New York in spring the sight of the blooming trees is nothing short of amazing.
Take the subway from Manhattan to Brooklyn and walk over the Brooklyn Bridge for great views of the city.
Not far from the Brooklyn Bridge are Chinatown and Little Italy. Sip a cappuccino at one of the charming sidewalk Italian cafes and have dinner at Peking Duck House in Chinatown. The roasted duck and trimmings are to die for.
Only a 15 minute walk from Chinatown, Soho is a shopper’s paradise with interesting fashion and decor boutiques. After a gruelling day of shopping you can stroll the High Line, an elevated greenway that runs for about a mile on the lower west side of Manhattan.
The High Line takes you to Times Square in about 25 minutes. No visit to New York City is complete without a walk in Times Square to take in the vibrant energy of the city. Seeing a Broadway show in New York city is definitely a memorable experience.
