One of New York’s most iconic sights is none other than Times Square. This flashy block of restaurants, shops and tourist landmarks marks the epicentre of Manhattan.

It must be said that while Times Square is an exciting place to be and there are many things in the general area surrounding it, it can get very hectic and rather busy. So, once you have managed to get your New York hot dogs for you and your travel mates, and have spent enough time starring at the ‘naked cowboy’, you’ll want to be sure to get traveling by foot, taxi or train to see the many other exciting areas that New York has to offer.
For starters, just around the corner from Times Square you can find yourself immersed in the Rockefeller Center. This landmark sight is home to many of America’s most famous public television networks, and you’ll discover that several of the country’s daily news and chat shows are filmed here. On top of this, you’ll also find the city’s famous ice-skating rink that is always filled during the wintertime.
As you continue your journey, let your inner fashionista out by visiting one of the world’s most famous shopping streets a la Fifth Avenue. Here, shopping is not just a hobby; it is an art, as you will find some of the world’s most decadent department stores and over-the-top flagship outlets of a variety of international merchandisers.
For those of you looking to get a certain sense of culture on your trip, you’ll find that New York is home to some of the world’s most influential and iconic art in its many museums. For starters, if you’re looking for a classic collection, you’ll want to be sure to check out the Metropolitan Museum of Art. After you have exhausted this extensive collection, you will still want to be sure to see the Museum of Modern Art, or as the locals affectionately deem it, ‘moma’. Next, why not head over towards the city’s Guggenheim collection and continue to dazzle yourself with all of the art on display?
On a related note, you can also take the ferry over from Battery Park to nearby Ellis Island to check out the Immigration Museum and see the Statue of Liberty up close and in person.
After you spend some time at these museums, you’ll want to be sure to check out Central Park. This is a great place to take a minute to sit down and relax and enjoy the grass before you hit the pavement and continue to explore more of the city.
While you’re still in town, don’t forget to visit the Empire State Building and make your way up to the top of this world famous skyscraper. Furthermore, you’ll also want to make the trek to see the nearby Flatiron building.
Another tip to consider is heading down to the lower east side and getting a feel for Greenwich Village. While you’re in this neighborhood, it would be criminal to ignore the famous Magnolia Bakery. So, do go in and let yourself indulge in one of its irresistible cupcakes.
