Friday, June 24, 2016

When taking a trip to the big apple, there are some things that you just have to do. Check out my guide, so you can do all the classic things in the city that never sleeps attractions.


No trip to New York would be complete without a shopping excursion to the famous Bloomingdale's. Popularised by the popular 90s sitcom friends, maybe you'll even see Rachel there? Don't forget to make sure you carry away your purchase an iconic Bloomingdale's brown bag.

Statue of Liberty

It's pretty much a given that you've got to visit the Statue of Liberty if you are in New York. Climbing the statue gives you a fantastic view out across the bay. To save, time, book advance tickets for the crown and pedestal to avoid the queues. The state is located on Liberty Island. Luckily it's easy to travel around NYC. To get there, you'll need to take the ferry, and you can combine it with a trip to Ellis Island as well.

Madison Square Gardens

Probably one of the most famous arenas in the world, there is always an exciting event to attend in Madison Square Gardens. Check out a new Go to watch a basketball game or a New York Rangers hockey game for an essential American experience. WWE wrestling is also a popular spectacle here, book your tickets and foam finger earlier, as this seat out very quick. Or why not grab tickets to one of the big name show,  with acts such as Kanye West, Ellie Golding and Amy Schumer booked for this year alone.

New York Deli

An essential part of any New York trip is going for lunch at a deli. They are well known for their huge range and selection of different sandwich fillings, so there's bound to be something that you're going to like. To go for a quintessential New York experience make sure you choose the pastrami on rye. Try Art's Delicatessen at 20 to 90 Broadway at 82nd Street. Or The Deli at 205 East Houston Street at Ludlow Street. The latter was featured in the film when Harry Met Sally.

Time Square

Taking a walk around times square makes you feel like you're in the centre of the world. Take a look at all the oversized advertising is screens or grab a classic American hotdog. If you are there for one of the major events such as New Year's or Valentine's Day make sure you get there early as you can imagine the crowds are huge. Remember as in any city, it's important to take safety precautions in New York. Take traveller's cheques instead of cash and only used vetted cabs.

Empire State Building

Lastly don't forget to visit the iconic 103-floor high empire state building. No longer the tallest building in the district the empire state makes up for it with class and style. Take a trip to the top and check out the stunning view of new York City. It's also a perfect place for proposals, so consider it if that is going to be part of your break.
