    Times Square

    43rd Street and 7th Avenue, New York, NY 10036
    475 reviews

    Everyone should do this once, preferably on New Year's Eve. But only once. Check it off the list and move on. Depending on the weather, this is heaving on NYE or just crowded, but still doable.

    Central Park

    14 East 60th Street, New York, NY 10022-1002
    413 reviews

    It seems to be a must see. Though you could probably dismiss this as another park, you shouldn't. Plenty of things to do and a great place to stop and take a break. Certain areas of the park can actually make you forget you're still in the city.

    Spectacular views of NYC, Brooklyn and New Jersey. It is NYC landmark without a question. If you are visiting NYC - go and if you are a New Yorker go with your visiting out of town friends or family.

    Metropolitan Museum of Art

    1000 Fifth Avenue, New York 10028
    188 reviews

    I've been to museums all over the world, but nothing prepares you for what you see and experience in the Metropolitan Museum of Art. It is simply the greatest museum in the world! I could have spent a whole day itself in the Frank Lloyd Wright room.

    Rockefeller Center

    Rockefeller Plz and E 49th Street, New York, NY 10020
    206 reviews

    Rockefeller Center is giant magnet of people going nowhere in one spot with whole lot of places to eat and shop. Disability Access is one way in and one way out no flow pattern to it, you will get you stuck. Just great to see but need to leave quickly as possible.

    High Line Park

    519 West 23rd Street New York, 10011
    152 reviews

    This is one of the coolest urban reclaimation projects I have seen. They took an old elevated railway line and turned it into a landscaped park/and consumer walkway 4 stories above street level. You don't quite escape the noise of the city, but it feels somehow peaceful anyway.

    The American Museum of Natural History covers four blocks between West 77th and 81st Streets and—with its enormous galleries of dinosaurs, aquatic life, fossils, and meteorites—is one of the city's most appealing museums for children.

    National September 11 Memorial & Museum

    One Liberty Plaza, NY 10006
    155 reviews

    Goose boobs… Everybody who visits NY should go the memorial, in honor of what happened to this city. I would recommend to book tickets for the museum in forehand. The lines on the spot where very long and on the moment of our stay all the tickets for the next 2 days where already reserved.

    Top of the Rock

    West 50th Street, New York, NY 10112
    131 reviews

    The views from the Top of The Rock are stunning and reflect the size and majesty of this amazing city. It’s better to go up there when the weather is nice – you can see far-far away. My favorite view from there is the view of the Central Park – you look with amazement at the spread of this enormous ...

    Washington Square Park

    5th Avenue, Manhattan, New York, United States
    111 reviews

    Washington Square Park is the heart of Greenwich Village. The main landmark is the triumphal arch dedicated to George Washington. You can see it from at least half a mile up Fifth Avenue. In the southwest corner you will find the famous chess tables where friends and strangers play speed chess in the summer. Around the park there are many ...

    Bryant Park

    500 5th Avenue Number 1120, New York, NY 10018
    85 reviews

    This is my absolute favourite place to relax at in New York City. You can sit there for hours doing nothing and just enjoying the weather but there's a lot of stuff to do as well: ping pong tables, bars, library, etc. and you can even find hidden plugs for your laptop if you need to catch up on some ...

    St. Patrick's Cathedral

    5th Ave. between E. 50th and E. 51st Sts., Midtown East, New York, NY, 10022
    87 reviews

    The architecture is impressive and worthy of a few paused stares; it is both a relief from the rectangular towers and skyscrapers that dot the rest of the metropolis, and an ironic change of scenery. You can attend mass if you'd like to, or simply walk around and marvel at the stained glass windows.

    FAO Schwarz

    767 5th Avenue, New York, NY
    86 reviews

    I think every part of the store is amazing. I love the collection of every stuffed animal known to man and the giant keyboard. We actually had to return a toy that didn't work, and even though it had been a year since we got it as a gift, they exchanged it for us without hassle!

    I saw Phantom of the Opera here - and though we sat at the top of the theater against the back wall, it was a hair-raising performance and an unforgettable experience. Theater lovers will thrive here.

    Apple Store

    767 5th Ave,New York,NY
    86 reviews

    I've got a love/hate relationship with this store. Located at 59th and 5th ave, at the base of the GM Building, it's located right at my offices and attracts all kinds of riff-raff from around the world. While visually stimulating, this place is a zoo and I hate crowds. The space is beautiful, with a spiral staircase and elevator capped ...
