Hey im going travelling next year and i am going to spend about a week in New York.
Could anyone could help me out PLEASE! jsut to give me advise how i could spend my time there - what to see where to go where not to go, anythign possible will be most appreciated
There are tons of things to do in New York... I am sure you'll get lots of things if you search this forum for new york. Also tons of things online. what kind of things are you interested into, I can reccomend places if you tell me what you are looking for
alot of musically based places/ alot of live entertainment- broadway plays/ gig venues that kinda thing
sightseing is a big thing aswell like the hot spots i would like to know
For live music,
Greenwich village has lots of live music places on bleeker street. I am afraid all of those are some what too hip and commercialized (meaning very crowded on weekends), but good none the less. you can walk on bleeker street and find these places. Lower east side has a good music scene.
Also, williamsburg in brooklyn(places around Bedford and Lorimer stop on L train) has some great live music places
Awww I wish I was headed there soon!Not long back from my big trip where some of it was spent working in New York!I feel all nostalgic!!!!You will have an incredible time, its an amazing place!!!A week is a decent amount of time to see a lot!!!Do the sights, you know if you dont you will get back and people will ask where your pictures of the statue of liberty are..plus you have to see all these things as some point in your life.....ive put together a few of my recommended things....
1)take a trip to the top of the Rockerfella Centre, to the bar "The Rainbow Rooms", in the evening and drink a Manhattan cocktail!!!
2)Go to the Metropolitan museum of art....its incredible!
3)Take a stroll through Brooklyn...Prospect Park is really beautiful...also theres a huge cemetery called Greenwood there which i discovered, check out my photo gallery to see it!
4)walk across Brooklyn Bridge and dont turn back till you are almost across it...the view will be amazing!
5)Theres a great bar called "Trailer Park" its all american craziness, really cool and quirky!does fab frozen maragarits and nachos!
hhhhmmmm i have too many to list!feel free to send me a message if you want any more advice, i could seriously talk about new york for hours!!!!
a week wont put a dent into the many things to do in NY.
times square at night, helicopter tour, night boat tour, central park, museums, wall street, 5th ave, bars & clubs, broadway plays, taking walks through neighborhoods, the apollo in Harlem
