New York has always been the city of dreams!! NYC is filmed in so many movies, both Hollywood and Bollywood. People all over the world dream about visiting New York and the famous landmarks. Here are some of my favorites!!
1. BROOKLYN BRIDGE – It takes approximately half an hour to walk across the Brooklyn Bridge. The intricate details and large arches of this bridge are stunning! As you go over to Brooklyn, the view of NYC skyline is unforgettable. You can walk on the bridge or ride a bicycle. If you haven’t crossed the bridge, you’re missing out on the NYC views.
2. DUMBO – This is the area in Brooklyn that gives you the beautiful view of NYC’s skyline. It’s another few minutes of a walk once you’ve reached the Brooklyn side of the bridge (don’t worry, there’s signs that guide you to the Dumbo). Once you get to the Manhattan bridge, follow this street all the way to the end for the riverside walk towards the Brooklyn Bridge.

After this long trek, you’re probably hungry. There’s a SHAKE SHACK or GRIMALDI’s PIZZA right across from this view. The food is amazing at both of these restaurants. Try it out and let me know your thoughts!!
3. TIMES SQUARE – I’m sure you were wondering if I would mention the most famous area in NYC or not. Yes, of course!! Times Square is a must see (and probably every night) while in NYC. Once you’ve walked around on the streets, in and out of stores, grab a drink (or ice cream) and enjoy Times Square while sitting on the red staircase above the Broadway show ticket booth. You can see it all from there; crowds of people, line ups of yellow cabs, groups of performers, giant TV screens projecting all types of advertisements and all of the other hustle and bustle.
The red staircase is right underneath that Coca Cola screen!!
If you’re hungry, you can try out Olive Garden (which is behind the red stair case) or walk over to Shake Shack (can you tell I really love their burgers?!).
4. CENTRAL PARK – I absolutely love this park! I’ve loved it for ever since I could remember!! Gigantic is probably an underestimation to describe this park, so you can imagine how grand it is. There’s water fountains, boating, street vendors, music performers, dance performers, picnic areas, and so much more!! Take a stroll through this park, and you will feel so fresh!!
Once you walk out of the park (or into the park), stop by Wafels & Dinges cart for a delicious snack!! It’s at the corner closest to The Plaza Hotel.
I hope this helps with planning your NYC trip!!
Thank you for visiting!!
