First Time visit to New York City in summer. Central Park was the best, visited the Park every day. My visit to the Public Library was a highlight, don't miss the free library tours at 11h00 and 14h00.
Visiting the art museums. A wonderful city for walking, including Central Park. And I met so many wonderful kind, generous and friendly people. Such a magical place. A perfect city to visit as a single female traveller. I felt comfortable and safe throughout my visit.
Dirty and so over filled with tourists aimlessly looking for things to do - Prepare to line up at anything worthwhile doing and once you’re their prepare to be let down by the grottines of the attraction . The I don’t give a crap attitude of the locals let this city down and food really begs to given an overhaul in taste and presentation. All in all , New York should be called Old York with emphasis on Old
A wonderful place to visit. There is always plenty of things to do! This time we visited Brooklyn Heights and Harlem to see how ordinary people live. Soho /Tribeca is always a good choice for shoppung - have to mention Supreme store.
I spent 6 days there in total which was enough time to see everything I wanted too including a show and a baseball game. But it also gave me time to not have the rush and to go back to places I particularly enjoyed visiting. I would recommend getting the NY Pass if you want to go round a lot of museums and attractions, and wait until its on offer, I was much cheaper than buying the tickets separately and made queuing much quicker.
We rented Citibikes and rode the Green Line to Battery Park, amazing! Had Lunch at Pier One, great location, and sites to see! Yes, we found it easy to get around! Ride a bike and walk to really explore the city and you will find unexpected gems.
