New York, is one of my favorite cities after London. When i was a child all i ever wanted is to visit someday or somehow New York, watching those american movies or series filmed in New York it only made me feel so desperate to be there, asking my self how it feels to be there, wishing to see those skyscrapers and so on . So one day i earn a lot of money and planned to go there with a couple of friends. When we get there, we just can’t believe it….it feels like we were inside of New York movies, i just can’t believe what my eyes saw, those skyscraper, the yellow cabs, Impire State , etc. and i will never ever forget that amazing feeling, it was one of the happiest moment of my life. Describing it with this words it’s not enough what i felt for New York and yes it was a dream come true since i was child. So, we stayed there for 10 days and yes how not… we saw a lot of things but even that, there is a lot of places or things to do in New York.
We stayed in Manhattan. As you know the city of Manhattan is divided in Lower Manhattan, Midtown and Upper Manhattan, with Fifth Avenue dividing Manhattan’s in east and west sides. Manhattan is surrounded by the Hudson River. So mostly of the attractions you will find it in Midtown and Downtown Manhattan. So we decided to rent an apartment in Midtown Manhattan, we have chosen an apartment to rent instead of hotel, because it’s much more practical for us and cheaper, we can keep out like waking early for breakfast, eat always outside and all that stuff, in opposite of that, staying in an apartment we can wake up lately, go to supermarket and prepare our breakfast with bagels and sometimes our dinner as well. We had a very good located apartment, near to subway, Empire State view, supermarkets, restaurants and much more.
While we are having a breakfast we sat down together and talked about the plan for the entire day, i was the guide of the group, before we traveled to New York, i prepared a guide, which places we would like to visit and yes my friends were very happy that they can rid of this things making a travel plan but im happy to do this, is one of my vocation making a travel plan.
Here Are The Nice Places To Visit In New York:
PLACES TO VISIT IN UPTOWN MANHATTAN:
Central Park; is an urban park in the eastern portion of the central-upper West Side of Manhattan. The most visited urban park on United States, its size and cultural position, similar to Munich’s Englischer Garten and London’s Hyde Park. I recommend you to rent a bike or join the bike tours to Central Park, so you could see it in less than few hours.
American Museum of Natural History; is one of the largest and innovated natural history museums in the world. You would find Earth and Space, African Rain Forest, world’s largest collection Dinosaur and fossils and much more.
Do you remember the film “Night At The Museum” so this is the museum where they filmed, it was exactly the same. My favorite was the Dinosaur exhibitions, mostly of the parts of the Dinosaurs are real, so it was amazing for me, because i have never seen before a real Dinosaur bones exhibitions.
PLACES TO VISIT IN MIDTOWN MANHATTAN:
Empire State is one of the icon of New York, has 103 story skyscraper. It has a roof high with its antenna spire included a total of 1,454 ft (443 meters). It’s stood as the world’s most tallest building before World Trade’s Center constructed, but after the tragedy of September 11, again Empire State is the most tallest building in New York, but from April 30, 2012 One World Trade Center is completely constructed after the tragedy, is the tallest building in New York.
NBC Studio Tour; This is was also interesting, they take you behind the scenes of NBC’s New York operations and they offer this tour since 1933. The tour offers you to visit some of the most famous studios like Saturday Night Live, Jimmy Fallon, Nightly News with Brian Williams and lots of more. The tours are also conducted you in a working facility where you could experience a pre-production.

You could do or watch the show of ice skating, shopping in the Concourse, apart of shopping, you could have dinning, visit the famous Radio City Music Hall, like i mentioned above in NBC Studio Tour, Top Of The Rocks and much more….When we get there, they were starting to put on, the biggest Christmas tree in United State, that was so pity for us, so we didn’t see this famous Christmas tree, that every year it took place in Rockefeller Center.
Top Of The Rocks (Observation Deck); when we get through in Top Of The Rocks, we were so impressed…we didn’t knew that this will be also an amazing view like Empire State, but comparing to Empire State, Top Of The Rocks has only 70 floors. The Picture above you see the panoramic view of all the Skyscrapers buildings. The lift were also interesting, while you are waiting to be in the Top Of The Rocks, they put you a short film.
Times Square is a major commercial intersection, one of the world’s busiest pedestrian intersections, a major center of the world’s entertainment industry, site of the annual ball drop on New Years Eve a tradition which began on December 31, 1907 and continues today attracting thousands of people to the Square every New Years. In Times Square you will find everything there, from Broadway shows billboard to shopping area. If you want to see the original of New York, go there and you will feel like a New Yorker.

National September 11 Memorial & Museum; a highly recommended visit in Ground Zero. A National Tribute to the men, women and children killed in the terrorist attacks of 2001 and 1993, where you could feel the deepen loneliness tragedy, happened in September 11 attacks of 2001. Where was the Twin Towers placed they built the Ground Zero Plaza with fountain, that received the names of The North Pool and South Pool, as you can see the photos above.

Manhattan Bridge; is also in the lower Manhattan that brings you to Brooklyn where you could take a walk or bike it, like the Brooklyn Bridge. The idea of this bridge is they built it at first only for the railway, than later years they put a walkway and used by bicycles. From Manhattan Bridge you could contemplate the amazing view of Brooklyn Bridge, like take pictures and under the Manhattan bridge you could relax in a park, just sit down the grass and contemplate the New York’s view.
