If you don’t have a large number of bucks in your pocket, you can go to Grand Central Terminal Station. It is known for Grand Central’s marble stairs, grandeur, incredibly high ceilings, and large clock in the central terminal are must-see.
As the twilight draws nearer, go to the 6th Avenue to The Top of the Rock at the Rockefeller Plaza Center.

Now, do you think you have really visited New York if you haven’t encountered a Broadway play?! Book tickets! No matter what performance you choose, the magic of a Broadway show is sure to blow you away.
Rise and shine! It’s day 2. A lot more to experience the “concrete jungle where dreams are made of”. So put on your comfiest pair of ‘jeans’ and head towards The High Line for a unique morning stroll. This elevated railway road has been converted into a public park with luscious greenery, filled with a good variety of seasonal food vendors and prolific artists that are popular amongst tourists.
For breakfast, depending on which end you’re closest to, you should choose the Chelsea or Soho market for some trustworthy New York food.
You can wander the calm gardens and stand by the giant fountains in the 9/11 memorial and museum, where the two World Trade Center towers once stood. This museum is a sobering experience, but an NYC must-see nonetheless. Consider a stroll through Lower Manhattan till you arrive at the Whitehall Terminal. Yep, it’s time to see the Statue of Liberty! Enter on the free of cost Staten Island Ferry for a 60 minutes round trip to see a fantastic scene of the Statue for free.
Head towards the subway from South Ferry to Wall St, and you’ll find yourself in the middle of the financial district. From here, you can wander down to one of the most famous bridges in the world, the Brooklyn Bridge.
