Central Park 4.0 stars
Park - #1 of 140
Not far from Belvedere Castle, and near the center of Central Park, is the pleasant Shakespeare Garden. It's designated as a quiet space, so there are no street performers allowed there and no music. You can talk, but it's meant to be an oasis ... [more ]
Times Square 4.0 stars
Square - #2 of 140
Times Square in New York City is definitely visually stunning. Huge billboards and flashing lights, it was in fact awe inspiring when I was there. But it was also expensive! I made the mistake of eating and clubbing near Times Square and I ... [more ]
Empire State Building 4.0 stars
Skyscraper - #3 of 140
Hunter S Thompson said that one should go to the highest point on arrival in any city or town. It is from here that you will be able to get a view of your new habitat, however long you may be staying. You will instantly feel accustomed to you ... [more ]
Coney Island Beach 4.0 stars
Beach - #4 of 140
Coney Island isn't an island at all, but a district of Brooklyn and a slice of the egalitarian ideal which is seemingly so loathed by the United Statesof Private Everything. In summer the calm Atlantic water is warm enough to swim in, but in ... [more ]
Grand Central Station 4.0 stars
Train Station - #5 of 140
Grand Central Station is incredible! It isn't just a train station, it's architecturally and historically famous. We stopped at Grand Central Station on the way back from Brooklyn. One of the coolest things was the Klapwald photograph exhibit. ... [more ]
Brooklyn Bridge 5.0 stars
Bridge - #6 of 140
During my time in New York I had a close relationship to the Brooklyn Bridge. One of the best things to do in New York is taking a run over the bridge. I loved to see the skyline of New York and felt freedom when I was running. You feel like ... [more ]
Museum of Modern Art 5.0 stars
Museum, Gallery, Exhibition - #7 of 140
The Museum of Modern Art or the MoMA is just off of Fifth Avenue at 11 West 35th Street and is a part of the "museum mile". It was founded in 1929 and houses five floors of modern art with everything from paintings to collage to photography to ... [more ]

The famous golden (actually made of bronze) statue at Rockefeller Center is of the ancient Greek god Prometheus. According to Greek mythology, Prometheus made man out of clay and gave him fire. The statue is by the ice rink and is hard to miss. ... [more ]
Fifth Avenue 5.0 stars
Shopping - #9 of 140
The stretch of Fifth Avenue between 82nd and 104th Streets is known as the Museum Mile. As you could guess, these blocks are home to a number of New York's finest and most famous museums (MoMA, the Guggenheim) as well as some that may not be as ... [more ]
SoHo 4.0 stars
Quarter - #10 of 140
As someone who lived in England for awhile, I am enamored with all things British. So the arrival of TopShop in New York City was a big deal for me. It had a delayed opening for awhile, and then finally, within that past month or so, it opened. ... [more ]
Little Italy 4.0 stars
Quarter - #11 of 140
I lived in New York for the greater part of my life and dreamed of one day going to Italy. I'd grown up around Italian families, pastries, and rice balls. Yet somehow, as I backpacked around Italy - I realized that the Italian food I had become ... [more ]
Metropolitan Museum of Art 4.0 stars
Museum, Gallery, Exhibition - #12 of 140
Among the many amazing museums that New York offers, the Metropolitan Museum of Art is one of my favorites. In particular the collection about arms and armors deserves a detailed visit. It features amazing chain mails and alike from the Islamic ... [more ]
Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum 5.0 stars
Museum, Gallery, Exhibition - #13 of 140
If you're really into modern art, then by all means, spend some time visiting the Guggenheim, especially when there are cool temporary exhibits up (check the website to find out more), but really, the best part about the Guggenheim is the ... [more ]
Union Square 5.0 stars
Square - #14 of 140
While Times Square is the tourist hot-spot in Midtown Manhattan, you'll have much more fun if you hop the 4/5/6 or N/R/Q/W and get off at 14th Street Union Square. Most lines in Manhattan stop off at various points along 14th Street (from 8th ... [more ]
F.A.O. Schwarz 5.0 stars
Shopping - #15 of 140
F.A.O. Schwarz is more a tourist attraction than a place for shopping. Full of great new, as well as old and collectible, toys, the store is a real treat for both kids and adults. From action figures and dolls to science kits and construction ... [more ]
Chinatown 4.0 stars
Quarter - #16 of 140
"Chinatown my Chinatown" is a song that whenever I hear it makes me pine for authentic food between Canal St. and Worth St. near SoHo. Chinatown is another New York institution that goes a lot further than meets the eye. Besides the Oriental ... [more ]
Macy's 4.0 stars
Shopping - #17 of 140
Things tend to warm up a little after March in New York, but you can be assured that after the long winter, you can inhale the fresh spring air at the annual Macy’s Flower Show. And you thought Macy’s only did Thanksgiving. I make it point ... [more ]
American Museum of Natural History 4.0 stars
Museum, Gallery, Exhibition - #18 of 140
There are sooo many great museums to visit in New York I often forget where to start. I've been visiting this museum over and over again for years and always end up seeing something new - and No - it's not just a scene from "Night at The Museum" ... [more ]
Christopher Street 4.0 stars
Quarter - #19 of 140
Christopher Street is the famous gay area in New York. I loved going there because you can find a lot of funky coffee places and shops there. My favorite thing to do there was to buy a coffee to go, enjoy the atmosphere on Christopher Street ... [more ]
Upper West Side 4.0 stars
Quarter - #20 of 140
Columbus Circle was named for Christopher Columbus and there is a large statue of the explorer in the center of the circle. The statue and the fountains surrounding it are in the center of a traffic circle that is the convergence of Broadway, ... [more ]
