You know the drill, first I'll present the absolute musts and then a few helpful tips. Hope you enjoy this guide!
Statue of Liberty
The most famous statue in the world. To get to the statue you need to take a ferry, and to buy the tickets you need to stand in queue for a couple hours so get there early. The ferry that takes you to Liberty Island also stops at Ellis Island. Seeing both in a single day is possible, but it's an ambitious undertaking.
Right here you can feel the city’s energy. Every day I enjoyed my morning coffee and cigarette on a bench just taking it all in. The density of people, billboards, car, cabs, lights and sounds – wow just overwhelming! NYC is truly the city that never sleeps!
I have expressed my love for bridges in this post already so no need for excess gushing. The most magnificent landmark of NYC in my opinion. Take the subway to Brooklyn, and get on to it because you need to walk over it, it’s about 2km long so be prepared with water and comfy shoes/sneakers.

Stay sexy y'all,
Without this park NYC would be a concrete jungle, but because of it’s existence you can enjoy nature. Bring your salad and juice and take a lunch break as native New Yorkers do!
Empire State building
To those who are interested in the building specs link me visit this link, for others the Empire State building is know for being the home of King King. Seriously, an inspirational building indeed.
Funny building right?!
Another gorgeous building, but note that you cannot visit it like the Empire State building, because it’s a office building.
Probably the most wanted and know address in the world and a shopping paradise.

- When traveling around NYC the most convenient way is by subway because of the traffic jams and it’s the cheapest way to get around.
- If you are going to try the famous NYC hot dog – ask for the price first ALWAYS!!
- These are my favourite shopping stops: Century 21 and TJ Maxx; they sell designer clothing for hilarious prices. Every designer piece if own I bought here!
-I recommend a hotel near Times Square or in the middle of the Manhattan Island so traveling get’s easier. We stayed in Yotel which is very NY with it’s outdoor terrace and funky hi-tech vibe, chek it out.
-NYC is not only Manhattan, also try to visit Brooklyn and Queens.
-We landed in Newark (NJ) which is closer to Manhattan than JFK airport in NY
-Bring sneakers and comfy shoes, bags which can contain certain items: map of Manhattan, Subway map, water bottle, Anti-bacterial lotion (must!).
- Everything you have seen in the movies – the sites, building, people and mentality is exactly as portrayed! The people are wonderful, open and loving.
-Try to visit a bar or restaurant after 21h, but don’t even try without a reservation.
