I’ve outlined places to explore, things to do, where to stay, and where to shop! There are soooo many amazing things to do in the city and each time I go back I find something new, so this blog post will always be continuously evolving 🙂 Let me know if you have any questions or suggestions!!
Places to Explore
Top of The Rock
I suggest visiting the Top of The Rock during the daytime rather than nighttime, the views are just so unbelievably gorgeous during the day.
Empire State Building
For a nighttime view of New York City, the Empire State Building provides amazing views.
I wouldn’t want to spend every night in Times Square but I think it’s for sure something you gotta see on a trip to NYC
Central Park and The Met
The Met is a famous art museum that can’t be missed if you even enjoy art a little bit. Plus if you are a gossip girl fan, the met steps are probably already on your list!! Central Park is close to the Met and you can easily walk there right after.
WHERE TO EAT
→Breakfast and Brunch
- Jack’s Wife Freda

WHERE TO STAY
This hotel is super modern and located right in the center of Soho, which is my current favorite area of NYC.
→THE PLAZA HOTEL
The Plaza Hotel is such an iconic New York City hotel. It’s pricey but definitely worth the experience at least once in your life. Plus if you travel to NYC during a less busy time of the year you can get room rates that are half of the price that they would be during peak travel times!
Located in Midtown, I loved the vibe of this boutique hotel. The breakfast room service is also amazing.
By far one of the best shopping neighborhoods in New York City, SoHo has a unique vibe that no other part of Manhattan can compare to.
RESALE AND CONSIGNMENT STORES
These are all over and are 100 percent worth your time.
Union Square/Flatiron District
Make sure to stop by the Shake Shack across the street from the Flatiron Building during your shopping trip here. Seriously, it’s in a little park and there are always so many dogs there. Basically, a dream come true.
