From the eyes of mine and with a heart for this city. I’ve never been a city-lover but New York is a different story altogether.
Iconic NYC landmarks
- Grand Central station
- Empire State building
- Chrysler building
- World Trade Center
- Statue of Liberty
- Flatiron Building
- Charging Bull, Wall Street
Maestro Arturo Di Modica’s world-famous Charging Bull achieved overnight stardom after the artist dropped it off in front of the New York Stock Exchange, in violation of city permits. The sculpture rapidly became an urban legend and now, an international icon.
- High Line
- Chelsea market
- The Strand
See some of the world’s most antic books.
13. New York Public Library, Bryant Park
14. Broadway Musical
Manhatten (arranged from North to South)
Whole Foods supermarket
Situated at the West of Manhatten
MUST-GO if it’s a clear blue day, to watch the sunset. I recommend pairing Chelsea Market (indoors) & High Line on the same trip
A village quite famously filmed by many popular movies e.g. I am Legend, Friends
Colourful, artistic bohemian culture
Cradle of the LGBT movement- keep a lookout for a street named Gay Street!
Washington Square Arch
Where Manhatten & Brooklyn bridges reside. It’s the river that flanks Manhatten and Queens
The only places I didn’t go were Bronx & Harlem.
Not an exhaustive list ‘cuz museums aren’t exactly my thing.
Metropolitan Museum of Art
Free on Fridays from 4pm
American Museum of Natural History
Pay at your own cost
New York is not complete if you don’t:
Appreciate street music.
Enjoy the weather, whether rain or snow.
Stop and appreciate the beauty of New York.
If you’re lucky, maybe you can catch a Black demonstration, like I did.

To my friends bound for New York, I hope you enjoy this concrete jungle as much as I enjoyed my time there!
