What to do in NYC?
New York City is the place where everything begins and where everything ends. Let’s together walk around the city. The first thing you should to when you come to the city is check for good apartments in New York, and then once you find a good apartment you should ask the owners or neighbors where you can get a city map and the map of metro lines, everything else goes smoothly from then on.

2. A view from above!
You can choose from two most attractive locations: Empire State Building and Rockefeller Center. Rockefeller Center is also called Top of the Rock, and according to us it is a much better choice, because it gives you a stunning view to whole Central Park. On the other hand, Empire State Build allegedly offers you to pay extra to reach the 102nd floor, where the crowd is much smaller and the atmosphere is more intimate. Our recommendation is to go there just before the sunset, because that way you will be able to see how the city looks like both during the day and during the night. Be sure to buy tickets online in order to avoid lines on the box offices at the entrance.
Central Park has two bigger and three smaller lakes as well as many monuments. Find the plan park and spend a few hours in it. Bryant Park is also nice and it is located in the heart of Manhattan. There is also a Riverside park, where you can see a great view of New Jersey.
Very beautiful park is also Brooklyn Bridge Park which is located in Brooklyn, just under the Brookly Bridge, and from there you will probably see the best view of Manhattan Skyline.
Another great view of the skyline is from the ferry that sails towards the Statue of Liberty and Liberty Island.
