Squares in New York
Times Square
(371)
Times Square is the most emblematic square in New York. Surely if you have ever been, you know what it is like. Its triangular shape, the giant, bright advertisments on the buildings, the New Yorkers screen announcing the end of the season and the start of a one, I've seen it more than once. If you have the chance to travel there, you can also look for webcam, at http://www.earthcam.com/usa/newyork/timessquare/ Times Square is the intersection of Seventh Avenue and Broadway. It is surrounded by theaters, where you can watch up to date music as well as long running shows like Cats, Les Miserables and The Phantom of the Opera, which have been running for over 20 years. The place that never sleeps, and there's always more crazy men singing, people celebrating simply being there, or an event sponsored by a major brand. To not miss what happens in the stock market or anywhere else in the world, you can take a look at the screens of NASDAQ, the American Stock Exchange Index, or put on live news. In this mecca of American culture, you can find everything imaginable that says "United States." The Hard Rock Cafe, McDonald's, Burger King, XXXXL clothing stores, souveniers for New York baseball teams, and more.
Gardens in New York
Central Park
(303)
We spent 6 days in total during our stay on American soil, and it took us 5 days to finally set foot in Central Park! I planned this visit quite late in our itinerary, as there was so much else I wanted to see, and in the end it proved to be a lucky decision, as the last two days of our stay were the sunniest! After entering through the North Entrance, we could see many, many pools, and many dog ​​walkers, with 5 to 10 dogs each, awesome! It was a great place to go for a walk.

Empire State Building
(278)
Most wonderful experience!
Bridges in New York
Brooklyn Bridge
(208)
Awesome, overwhelming, amazing ... There aren't enough adjectives to describe how it feels, not only to see the bridge, but to see it from inside the city itself. All the skyscrapers struggle to protrude above each other, but they fail to diminish the view of the Brooklyn Bridge. I was on it for about two hours, seeing as it was evening, and I tried to take some pictures that reflected what I saw from this location. Amazing, inspiring, great, awesome, majestic, friendly, bustling, classic, exciting, overwhelming, etc. The English word that best describes the feeling of being there and the views you can enjoy is AWESOME!! Something every travel lover should see in their life :)
Statues in New York
Statue of Liberty
(234)
I couldn't miss the chance to see the Statue of Liberty and my experience was great. We took advantage of our CityPass and headed to catch the ferry in Battery Park. After waiting between 15 and 20 minutes, we boarded the ferry that took us to the island. It was spectacular to stand at the foot of the Statue of Liberty, and of course, to enjoy the wonderful views across the skyline of lower Manhattan and the view of the famous Brooklyn Bridge.

Viewpoints in New York
Top of the Rock
(135)
Before coming to New York a friend told me to go up to Top of the Rock, which is much better than the Empire State. Well, I listened. It is wonderful to see Manhattan virtually from the sky. I suffer from vertigo so I stayed about 3 feet away from the glass, and it was worth it. We were there in the morning, at about 11:00 and the truth is that it was a treat because there were no lines and very few people went up. The price if I remember correctly is about $20 for each adult.
Museums in New York
National September 11 Memorial & Museum
(183)
The 9/11 Memorial Preview Site, as its name suggests, is a space dedicated to the memory of the terrorist attacks that took place on September 11, 2001. Here everyone can follow the progress of the work of the World Trade Center, the complex of buildings that are being built in Ground Zero, as well as recall that moment that changed the history of the United States and the world. The museum opened in 2009, and more than one million visitors have passed through it. Access hours are from 10 am to 7 pm from Monday to Saturday and from 10 am to 6 pm on Sunday. Admission is free, and as there are only a couple of rooms, you don't need much time to visit the museum.
Train Stations in New York
Grand Central Terminal
(110)
Grand Central Station was the first railway station to be built in the city, at a time when people still preferred travelling by horse, and prostitutes still walked up Park Avenue ... With the development of the city it was decided to promote railway network, and they built this immense building in a classical style, and is still used by thousands of people travelling every day! I found the place using a free guided tour that is given on Fridays and I can only advise you to follow the guide if you are interested to know more than what you can learn with a book tour! Here is the information for the visit: http://gonyc.about.com/od/toursbr/a/ferate_tour.htm The tour itself is all in English, and with some people can last up to 2 hours, so consider planning your day around it!
Museums in New York
Metropolitan Museum of Art
(85)
The second floor of the Metropolitan Museum of Art (MET) in Manhattan contains a collection of European paintings, one of the world's best collections. With 2200 pieces, this museum has many of the world's most recognizable paintings. The MET has a vested interest in European masters of the 16th to 19th centuries, specifically French, Italian, and Dutch masters. Among the paintings in the collection include works by Goya, Vermeer, Brueghel, Velazquez, Jean Louis David, Dick Van Eyck, among others. There are many rooms to visit, but the European painters collection should be among your top choices.

M&M's World
(91)
The truth is that this place is amazing, both for those who like the famous chocolate sprinkles and those who do not, it is a journey most enjoyable and entertaining. I uploaded some pictures of the place inside as well as some videos of the giant screen on the outside so you can see the creativity of the place.
Streets in New York
Fifth Avenue
(73)
One of the most famous streets in New York, and probably the world. However, for tourists, except for one who goes with a lot of money, it's just a place for taking a stroll or going somewhere special like the Apple store, the NBA Store, etc. In general, it's mostly big skyscrapers and, above all, luxury shops. Still, obviously, you have to walk up and down Fifth Avenue to feel the spirit of New York.

Staten Island Ferry
(52)
The Staten Island Ferry is a must in New York and is one of those experiences you never forget. Before going to NY I was told a thousand times, "don't miss the Staten Island Ferry, don't miss it!". You can not imagine the feeling of going in front of the ferry, returning from Staten Island, and seeing downtown in the distance. Summer is a movie! It is awesome!! I think you are privileged to be in that moment and in that place you dreamed for so long. It's indescribable, you really feel good. I'd say it's one of those places that, if life allows, you can not stop watching and living.

Historical Monuments in New York
Flatiron Building
(81)
The Flatiron was the tallest building in the world for a moment in the twentieth century. Today among the rest of the New York City skyline, you are no longer surprised by the height, but its form. Located on the corner formed by the intersection of Broadway and Fifth Avenue, and extending up to 25th Street, the front silhouette looks curious and can be seen from Madison Square Park.

It has a beautiful sculpture garden with works by Rodin, Calder, Nevelson and Maillot. The Art of "memories" have diverse views, posters, small sculptures, etc.. Visiting it is absolutely a pleasure. Head out to one of the beautiful courtyards to savor a drink where you can admire the sculptures and the beautiful garden. It is a "must" among the many museums in Manhattan.

Before going to look at the overall exposure that is dedicated, be warned that it may be a big disappointment. If you just want to admire the building's structure, which itself is worth, you can enter the lobby and admire it from below for free (in the area where you buy the tickets). The first time I visited I saw an exhibition dedicated to black and white that was completely disappointing.

The best things to do in New York

It is difficult to answer the question of what to do in New York on a single line. There is so much stuff to do in New York that many don't know where to start! Well, we'd recommend starting with Times Square, the world's famous square and the one we've all seen so often seen on television. There, you can experience everything: bright lights, restaurants, and one of the absolute best New York activities: people-watching as the multitudes come and go.

As far as things to do in New York go, the Statue of Liberty is the first stop. You can reach the feet of the most famous lady in America by ferry from Manhattan. On, and don't forget a visit to Central Park, 300 hundred acres of forest, tennis courts, and even a zoo! Another of the great places to visit in New York, or rather from where to watch New York, is the Top of the Rock viewing platform. From there, you have a birds eye view of many of the best attractions in New York like the Empire State Building and Central Park.

Need more things to see in New York? Well, take notes on some of these top New York attractions: the Fifth Avenue, Wall Street, the Metropolitan Museum, Soho, Little Italy, and so much more!
