Famous landmarks

New York City can be defined with Statue of Liberty. It was gifted to America by France. It is the largest statue of the world and symbolizes freedom. From the statue, you can get a nice view of New York Harbor. Another famous landmark of NYC is Empire State Building. This 102 story building was the tallest edifice of the world for a long time. Your trip to NYC cannot be completed until you see the City from the 102th-floor observatory of Empire State Building. Along with the beautiful concrete edifices of NYC, you must take a trip of the central park. Featured in countless Hollywood movies, this park allows you a glimpse of another side of this beautiful city.

Art and Culture

New York City has some of the finest museums of the world. The Metropolitan Museum of Art contains over 2 millions of artworks. If you are passionate about Theater and music, you cannot miss a show of Broadway. Broadway is world famous for hosting classic theaters. Recently 60 minutes did a review of Hamilton on Broadway, the show is sold out for months.

If you are not so fond of theaters then just take a walk through the theater district and Shubert Alley.


NYC holds one the famous shopping streets of the world, Fifth Avenue. Even if you are not into shopping, a walk through Fifth Avenue is most recommended. There is a high chance you can spot a Hollywood Celebrity shopping over there.


NYC represents the cuisine of the whole world. There are over ten thousand restaurants which can offer you various cuisines from all over the world in various budgets. Even the street foods of NYC are one of the most delicious platters of the world. You cannot leave this city without tasting the delicious hot dogs, eggs Benedict, Doughnut, cheesecake of this city.

If you want to impress a date or just want some amazing views of NYC, my recommendation is SixtyFive bar and cocktail lounge on the 65th floor of 30 Rockefeller Plaza. Not cheap by any means.
