  • The High Line ♥♥♥

You’ll love walking along the High Line, an old suspended railway.

The High Line offers spectacular views of Manhattan and several types of activities.

The park is open daily from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.

 

  • The Statue of Liberty♥♥♥

The statue built in 1886 by Frédéric-Auguste Bartholdi was a gift from France on the occasion of the centenary of the United States.

Head to Battery Park to board the ferry to Staten Island. The ferry passes right in front of the Statute of Freedom. You can also enjoy a beautiful view of Manhattan.  

 

The service is provided 24 hours a day, every day of the year.

Central Park is the largest urban garden in the world that offers many things to do: sports, exhibitions, the Shakespeare Garden, Strawberry Fields tribute to John Lennon, etc.

For a reasonably priced hotel next to Central Park I recommend:

The Central Park North

 

Grand Central Terminal ♥♥

The Grand Central Terminal is a jewel of architecture dating back to 1913. You will remain impressed by the constellations on the ceiling of the main hall, as if seen from the sky.

Address: 89 E 42nd St

 
  • Times Square ♥♥♥

Stroll through the giant screens and book a ticket to a Broadway show.

What’s the right plan to see a cheaper show? The TKTS! But you’ll have to be lucky to find a discounted ticket to the best Broadway shows…

Personally, I bought a place to see the Musical of the Lion King and it was magical, one of the most beautiful memories of my trip to New York

 

For a hotel at affordable prices in the Broadway area I recommend the hotel below, promotions are made regularly, don’t delay in booking: Broadway hostel

The bridge has been there since 1883. The view is beautiful at sunset!

  • Chinatown ♥♥♥

Very lively area.

Go through Canal Street, the soul of NYC’s Chinese trade!

Visit the Mahayana Buddhist Temple on the corner of Canal Street and Bowery Street, with a magnificent golden Buddha inside.

Peking Duck House (28 Mott Street) is considered the best Chinese restaurant in town.

 

  • ♥♥♥ Gospel Mass

Seeing a Gospel Mass is an experience to live.

You will witness the Christian religious songs of African Americans.

The best neighborhood to attend a Gospel Mass is Harlem. I advise you to find a small church away from tourists, to live an even more authentic experience!

Ground Zero refers to the former site of the twin towers destroyed in the September 11, 2001 attack. The site now houses a memorial as well as the 9/11 museum.
