Say Hello to New York City!4 min read

“Only by going alone in silence, without baggage, can one truly get into the heart of the wilderness. All other travel is mere dust and hotels and baggage and chatter.” – John Muir

New York City, known as a city that never sleeps. Lives up to its superlatives.

Bursting with energy till the wee hours. Iconic. Trendy. Chic and hip at the same time. Offering everything. Museum awes with the biggest artists and the latest collections. Dazzling shows. Celebrity chefs restaurants. Trendy cocktails bars. Skyscrapers and the most well known buildings in the world. New York City has it all.

It is impossible to see everything. As soon as you open any city guide the list of sights seems to be never-ending.

New York City Attractions

From Empire State Building. Brooklyn Bridge. Grand Central Terminal. Statue of Liberty. Chrysler Building. Times Square. Apollo Theater. South Street Seaport. Union Square. Rockefeller Center. Flatiron Building. Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts. St. Patrick’s Cathedral. New York Public Library. To Little Italy and Chinatown.

This is just a few from a long sight-seeing must see and do! Instead of rushing from sight to the sight soak into the atmosphere of the New York City. Restaurants. Bars. Parks. Exhibitions. But most importantly enjoy.

I will tell you about few things I love in New York City.

My Favourite New York City Attractions

1. Enjoy a comedy show.

The best in Dangerfield’s. Comedy Cellar. Upright Citizens Brigade or The Gotham Comedy Club. You will laugh, laugh and laugh.

4. Coffee on Washington Square

Alway! I’m getting a take away coffee in one of the great coffee shops in area and just watch people passing by. From time to time I’m nicely disturb by some sax player.

I adore this museum, as they display biggest German, Austrian and Swiss artists whom I admire highly. This time they had an amazing exhibition of Ferdinand Hodler ‘View of Infinity’.

6. Have a sushi.

I’m addicted to sushi and New York has some amazing sushi restaurants. I love Koi and East 15 but my favourite one is a little place in Soho called Blue Ribbon Sushi on Sullivan St. Monk fish liver is to die for.

10. See an exhibition in International Photography Center.

I love this place. Exhibitions here are always very orientated. Like the one I saw this year ‘Rise and Fall of Apartheid: Photography and the Bureaucracy of Everyday Life’.

11. Relax in Central Park

I know it may sounds touristy and cheesy, but I like it. To lie on the grass and enjoy some sun.

12. Eat pizza.

Yes. New York City is known for many specific foods but you can’t leave without having some divine creations either from Lombardi’s, Luzzo’s by the High Line or Vezzo.

13. Mani – pedi.

I know, I know. Relax boys, this one is only for Girls. I love this city for all the places where the reservations are not required. Pop in when you feel like it. Choose your colour and you are ready for another night out.

14. Shopping.

It goes without saying ha ha ha Shopping feels like an obligation in New York City. Bergdorf Goodman Rules and brings your credit cards to the limits.

15. Have a dinner in Le Bernardin.

Yes, yes I know. That it is no longer the best restaurant of New York City. Chef’s Table at Brooklyn Fare took nr 1 spot. But I still love it, and always will.

    WOW, NYC is like no other city in the world. Maybe SF or London could rival it?

  2. Elisa Zen

    NYC is one of the best cities ever! I lived there and travel back often because I find myself missing it. Great Post!

    I think you travel to search and you come back home to find yourself there.I am not the same having seen the moon shine on the other side of the world.To travel is worth any cost or sacrifice.Our battered suitcases were piled on the sidewalk again; we had longer ways to go. But no matter, the road is life.

    • I think I found myself on my travels not at home to be honest but nevertheless thank you for your comment :)

    I totally agree with you. It is really impossible to see everything right away in New York City. Every time I go to this concrete jungle, it opens to new and big world where there are a lot of lists of sights that seems to be never-ending. I love New York City and I always want to travel to this place every now and then with my family. Thank you for sharing this amazing photos of the great city.

  6. So now I am ready to hop on a flight booking site and book my tickets! I have been to New York but only briefly. I so want to head back again for a decent length of time and this article definitely increases that desire! What a fabulous city.

    Last time I was in NYC we took a little time visiting ground zero to see the 9/11 memorial. Its quite a powerful place and an experience I would recommend.

    • I think for me it is a bit too much, I have been to Ground Zero and 9/11 memorials ones and I do not feel like it is something I would like to do over and over again… definitely not my favourite.

  8. Nadine

    As a teen my dad offered to take me a business trip to NYC. We were raised to fear the mean streets and I was not interested. He brought back an Ann Perrelli sterling bean necklace from Tiffany’s.
    I may one day visit and wish I had travelled with him all those long years ago. I did however eventually take him up on offer to live in Australia and went to Sydney on of his business trips and saw all the sights even missing the last flight at 8pm out of the airport. I think living in Greenwich Village would have been sublime:)

    • Yum New York City is really fun, but I do understand that sometimes persuasions are stronger than anything. I understand even though that I’m very open minded and adventurous and I would go anywhere :) Australia sounds amazing, I really wish to go in the future!
      You say Greenwich Village I say Soho!
