New York is the city that never sleeps. Different, inimitable, noisy and surprising, the Big Apple is an incredible city that you have to discover and re-discover as there are always things to do. Here's a guide to our unmissable and favorite places in New York.
THINGS TO SEE & DO
-Touristical Time : From the Statue of Liberty, Times Square, Flatiron Building, Grand Central Station, Empire State Building or the Brooklyn Bridge, New York City is full of must-see places and monuments!
If you want a 360 ° view of the city, go to the top of the Rockefeller Center, it is indescribable. Note: for paid tourist activities, we recommend the Sightseeing Pass which is cheap and easily used in the city. We opted for the Flex Pass of 5 attractions which costs $130 USD.
Then, Let's chill in Central Park, this is the perfect place to sunbathe in the middle of nature. For the more sporty, you can go for a run, cycling, rollerblading and even small boating around the lake.
-To be a New Yorker Insider :
One of the most enjoyable things to do is simply take a stroll and get lost in the city. The High Line in the Chelsea area is the perfect place for it. This old railway has been transformed into a garden for the greatest happiness of the local residents and tourists.
Away from the hustle and bustle of Manhattan, the Brooklyn neighborhood has many charms: artists' warehouses, street art, second-hand clothing shops, handicrafts, etc. The neighborhoods of Williamsburg and Greepoint are populated by young and trendy residents.
Let's not forget that Brooklyn is on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean. Which means beaches must be nearby. We recommend the beaches of Coney Island or Brighton.

If you like art and museums, New York will fill your artistic needs. The Big Apple has some of the most beautiful museums in the world.
The Chelsea area is the place for art lovers. This hip neighborhood is home to some of the city's best art galleries ... and many of them are open access. The Gagosian gallery is by far our favorite.
