NEW YORK, NY

NEW YORK CITY. THE BIG APPLE. THE EMPIRE STATE. THE NICKNAMES FOR THIS CONCRETE JUNGLE ARE ENDLESS. FROM THE SHOPPING CAPITAL OF THE WORLD, TO INCOMPARABLE RESTAURANTS, THIS CITY TRUELY HAS IT ALL. THERE’S NEVER A DULL MOMENT IN THIS CRAZY CITY, AND IF YOU DO FIND A MOMENT TO SLEEP, THERE ARE PLENTY OF LUXURIOUS HOTELS FOR YOU TO CHOOSE FROM! WHILE THERE ARE ENDLESS THINGS TO DO & SEE IN NYC, I HAVE INCLUDED MY FAVORITES OF MANHATTAN BELOW.

  • FINANCIAL DISTRICT
    • SPEND A DAY WALKING AROUND THE FINANCIAL DISTRICT. START BY TAKING A FREE RIDE ON THE STATEN ISLAND FERRY WHICH GOES DIRECTLY BY THE STATUE OF LIBERTY. THEN ONCE YOU ARE BACK TO MANHATTAN, TAKE AN ELEVATOR RIDE UP TO THE TOP OF THE FREEDOM TOWER, TOUR THE 9/11 MEMORIAL, & PAY YOUR RESPECTS AT THE REFLECTING POOLS. DON’T FORGET TO WALK BY THE CHARGING BULL & FEALESS GIRL STATUES, WALL STREET, & THE NYSE
