Cross the bridge by walking, preferably at dusk and you'll see the most incredible views of New York. The best things in life are free (And I won't give'em to the birds and bees ;))
This is not only of my favorite buildings in the city, but in the world. I worship Mies van der Rohe and this is one of his better creations (in collaboration with Phillip Johnson). I admire its pureness and superb modernity. The Four Seasons Restaurant, an unmissable place, is located here. For me, both the building and the restaurant are touching.
Who hasn’t heard of Times Square? Where 42nd St., Broadway and 7th Avenue meet, you can enjoy one of the most alive, colourful and astonishing places in the world.
Times Square is full of mind-blowing stores (like the Toys ‘r us and its ferris wheel), restaurants, all the big screens advertising movies, broadway shows, TV shows… anything you can imagine.
Don’t worry if you’re going to New York, sooner or later, and without planning it, you’ll end up in Times Square.
This green space in the south end of Manhattan is a great place to take a rest while enjoying harbor views. You can also enjoy outdoor concerts or visit several memorials or the Castle Clinton National Memorial.
The most interesting thing is the ferries. You can take the free Staten Island Ferry, which I recommend, and the Ellis Island Ferry (the one that takes you to the Statue of Liberty too).
The MET is one of the most amazing museums in the US that carries art from almost everywhere on earth. In every corner of this giant, living, breathing, hunk of a museum you will find thousands of works and hundreds of themed collections. Admission is suggested and you’ll want to bring comfortable shoes since standing and walking is a major part of the visit. It’s always packed so make sure you check your patience at the entrance.
