The last post in my New York City guide.. Todays post is all about some of my favourite places to visit in New York. I miss walking about the city so much, this trip I tried to walk as much as possible whenever I could. On foot is defiantly the best way to see the city.
No trio to New York is complete without a visit to Central Par, because it really is one of the best places to walk for hours without realising it. A visit to Bethesda Fountain & the Malll are two musts as well as a picnic in Sheep Meadow and walk around the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir. I visited the park almost everyday & I miss sitting people watching, reading, even walking for miles through the park.
5th Avenue & 6th Avenue
Rockefeller Centre, The Empire State Building, The Flatiron Building, Madison Sq Park, The Plaza and Shops all the shops.. What more reasons could you need to take a stroll up 5th and 6th Avenue.
Brooklyn Bridge / Dumbo
Dumbo in Brooklyn has some of the best views of Downtown Manhattan & a great place to spend the morning. Just a short walk across the Brooklyn Bridge, Dumbo is filled with small coffee shops, bookstores & riverside views of Manhattan.
Entrances for Brooklyn Bridge at … Beside City Hall in Lower Manhattan
Manhattan Bridge is one that most people don’t know about. The same as the Brooklyn Bridge the Manhattan Bridge is just a short walk from Brooklyn to Manhattan, Just without the mass amount of tourists. And it takes you right into China Town on the Manhattan side.

The High Line
The High Line located in Chelsea is a great place for a walk, it elevated above the city & gives great views of the city.
Entrances at… Gansevoort & Washington Street : 14th,16th,18th,20th,23rd,26th,28th & 30th Street : 30th Street and 11 Avenue:
Greenwich Village is one of the prettiest neighbourhoods in New York City, from the apartments, to the tree lined streets, the coffee shops & the small little stores it has it all. On top of all that Greenwich Village is also home to Washington Sq Park, Carrie Bradshaw’s Apartment in Sex & the City and of course The Friends Building.
Carrie Bradshaw’s Apartment.. 66 Perry Street and Bleecker Street
The Friends Building.. Corner of Grove and Bedford
New York is home to some of the greatest museums, this year I manages to visit a few more than I have in the past. Getting the chance to visit the Whitney Museum, The Metropolitan Museum and The Modern Museum of Art. All three are great museums, I particularly loved the MOMA as it was filled with both beautiful art work & a series of sculptures and photography pieces which I loved.
The Whitney Museum… 99 Gansevoort Street
The Metropolitan Museum… 1000 5th Avenue
The MOMA… 11 West 53rd Street
While in New York seeing a Broadway Show is a right of passage. There is something for everyone’s taste & some of the best shows in the world, located all around Times SQ. I went to see Les Miserables & Chicago and they were two of the best shows that I have ever seen.
