Top Things to Do in NYC

18 May

1. Statue of Liberty


The only downfall is that there are long lines. I think we waited a few hours in line and this is after we got the tickets. Then when on the island, we had to wait again for the boat to go to Ellis island. When we saw the line at Ellis island, we gave up and just took the boat back.
Note: you can’t go to the crown anymore unless you book it months in advance or go super early like maybe 7ish and be one of the first 30 or something like that. I was really disappointed.

2. Bike through central park


This is such an incredible park. There is so much to see and do from visiting the chateau to paddle-boating.

3. Visit the Strawberry Fields


This is a memorial for John Lennon and it is located directly across from the Dakota Apartments, where Lennon was murdered…. Just an interesting little fact.

4. FAO Schwartz

Such a fun store! I feel like a kid in there.

5. Dylan’s Candy Bar

This is a candy lovers heaven. They will soon open a candy bar!! Can’t wait!

6. Top of the Empire State Building

Stunning view!

7. Washington Arch

This looks a lot like the Arch de Triomphe..hmm.

8. Go Clubbing

We went to Pacha. It was alright. What I liked was the three floors with different themes. One was hip hop; one was electronic, and the other was local i think.

9. Grand Central Station

The most gorgeous subway station I have ever seen. Also, one of the largest. There is a whole food court and there is magnolias!!

10. McGees Pub

Yes, this is the bar from “How I Met Your Mother.”  We were sad to find out that this is not the actual bar that the show is filmed in. It was only the inspiration.

11. M&M’s Store in Times Square

Make sure to try the pretzel, almond, peanut butter, and coconut flavors. Almond’s my fav!

12. World Trade Center Memorial

13. American Museum of Natural History

14. Wall Street

15. Toys R Us at Times Square

Theres a huge ferris wheel in the front… need I say more.

16. Chelsea Market

Such a unique place. I loved it! So many bakeries and restaurants to try here.

17. The Plaza Hotel

So freaking gorgeous. This was featured in Gossip Girl and Home Alone 2. It also has a tea room where you can have tea and cute snacks.

18. Kim Kardashians Store “Dash”

I went here hoping to see some celebrities but sadly there were none 😦

19. The Apple Store Cube

Cool on the outside, but on the inside it looks like any other apple store.

20. Trump Tower

If you watch “the apprentice” then you need to go here.

21. The Metropolitan Museum of Art

This egyptian tomb was so amazing to see and you can even walk through it! so legit

Also make sure to visit: SOHO for shopping, 5th ave, and Times Square of course. Also, the musicals are so fun! We saw Chicago and the Adams Family and we actually ended up liking the Adams family more which was surprising because I’m not a huge Adams family fan.
