On your first visit to a big city, I think it’s important to stay somewhere centrally located and in easy walking distance of the city’s sights.
For your first trip to NYC, you should probably stay in Manhattan.
I hope will visit New York, for my birthday this year, now I will prepare anything…
- For the Hotel the Hilton New York Fashion District, which I thought was a great location–a close walk from the High Line Park, Chelsea Market, a great seasonal greenmarket (see below). It was a convenient base for visiting Manhattan and the neighborhood felt safe to walk alone at night.
Stay Somewhere Central and Walkable
Explore Central Park during the day…
AND at night After dark, Central Park is particularly scenic as the lights of the city reflect off of the lakes, ponds, and streams
Walk the length of the High Line Park:While Central Park is historic and grand, this park on Manhattan’s Lower West Side is slim, modern — and 25 feet above the city. Built on an out-of-use elevated rail line, it’s an innovative way to turn a blighted manmade space into a scenic and peaceful place. It is only one mile long so it’s worth walking the path from start to finish
Visit the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island
Visit Times Square:
As an icon of American consumerism and the place where people around the world grew up “watching the ball drop” on television every New Year’s Eve, it’s worth walking by for the photograph.
Museum of Modern Art
The Metropolitan Museum of Art
The American Museum of Natural History
For the romantic time Walking across the Brooklyn Bridge
And now waiting for my next trip!
Stay tuned for my new blog about New York…
