    I visited to Central Park with my friends and it was a fantastic visit. The park is really huge and beautiful and it is right in the middle of the city. A perfect place to escape and enjoy nature. You can also plan a picnic with your friends if you are having a visit !!

    The memorial fountain made me very emotional; it was moving and extremely poignant. It is an upsetting and very appropriate tribute to remember the tragedy and lives lost. It was nice to see that people had added flowers to some of the names.

    The Survivor Tree is also very emotional to see and brought many deeper meanings to mind as we stood appreciating it.

    The Met is a treasure trove of art and history, with beautifully curated exhibits spanning centuries and cultures. It's a must-visit for art enthusiasts and casual visitors alike. Don't miss the rooftop garden for stunning views of Central Park!

    We took the premium tour today with the fantastic tour ambassador, Renita. A little pricey but worth the VIP treatment.

    We walked the High Line and took a whole afternoon to soak up the city centre tranquility and green-ness. Elevated above the traffic and at eye-level with residents' window-boxes, balcony gardens make the High Line a fascinating and almost surreal experience. The setting instills a sense of calm and quiet with most if not all people speaking quietly and calmly as if in a holy place. If you're up for a relaxing walk and want to take the pace off your time in NYC , the High Line is to be recommended.

    Broadway is the busy thoroughfare that cuts diagonally through Midtown Manhattan passing through Times Square, Herald Square at Macy's and near the Empire State Building and ends at Union Square after passing by the much-photographed Flatiron Building. However, in truth, Broadway describes New York's theater district as many of the best-known theaters in town are located on or near the street. Taking in a Broadway show is a must-do experience when visiting NYC.

    Great way to see some spectacular views of New York. Probably the best view over Central Park. There is a new attraction called The Beam but unfortunately it was out of order when we visited.

    Walking over the iconic Brooklyn Bridge is something every visitor to NYC should do. The bridge itself seems to exude the confidence of NYC - even in the rain. Walking north - south means you're pretty soon in Dumbo which itself is worth the visit, so if you're travelling to Dumbo, give yourself a treat and walk the bridge/

    Visiting the Statue of Liberty was an unforgettable experience. The ferry ride from Battery Park offered stunning views of New York Harbor and the Manhattan skyline, and up close, the statue's design was amazing.
    The pedestal museum provided a rich history of its construction and significance, and climbing to the crown, despite the narrow stairs, rewarded us with breathtaking city views. I highly recommend to anyone visiting New York City.

    It really is a great piece of architecture. I just wanted to see inside and was not disappointed but happily surprised that there was a lovely food market in there too and my partner was veryhappy to see the apple store upstairs where he could do the apple vision Pro trial so a win for both of us 😂

    The Manhattan Skyline is a very impressive view and reminds me of when New York features in films and tv shows. It was great seeing this view for free from the Staten Island Ferry.

    My time spent in Times Square was grand. We were there from Friday-Sunday. Not enough time to do much. However, those few days were enjoyable. I was so amazed at how many people visit time square daily. I just wanted to spend all my time there walking around Times Square. My hotel was 2-3 minutes from time square with a nice city view from my room. I will definitely be back soon with a 4-5 day stay 😁

    One World Trade Center is the tallest building in the US and the observatory offers 360 degree views for miles. The history and the legacy is awing, as you think about how this tourist destination would not exist had it not been for 9/11. I went on a clear day and had great views. The price isn’t horrible if you just do the standard admission. To me, it’s nothing I would need to experience again but overall it is worth the experience.

    This is an iconic landmark not to be missed, we "visit" Rockefeller Center each time we are in NYC.

    "Free activity"

    The "Channel Gardens" are nice to have a look at ...

    I’m not a religious person but I like visiting cathedrals/ old churches as I find the architecture and history quite interesting. There’s almost always a quiet calm about them which offers respite from the craziness of a city!

    St Patrick’s is free to enter and has a bag check which is quick and simple.

    It’s a beautiful place inside and out and worth a visit.
