But to get you started, here are a few ideas that should set you on the right track.
Brooklyn Botanic Garden
There are 52 acres of amazing gardens to discover here and no matter what time of year you go, there’s always something to see and do. In summer, prepare to be wowed by roses, meadow flowers and stunning waterlilies – and you can book yourself on a seasonal highlights tour to really get to see the blossoms at their best.
If you’re looking for somewhere to eat, head of to Katz’s – which you may well recognise if you’ve seen the film When Harry Met Sally! The diner is world-renowned and serves up some of the very best pastrami, knishes and hot dogs that you’ll ever have.
Grand Central Terminal
Yes, it’s a train station but it’s so much more than that! Grand Central is in fact the biggest station in the world (at an incredible 76 acres) and it’s the busiest in the US as well but don’t let that put you off. The building is absolutely stunning and certainly worth seeing at least once in your life time, with a huge main concourse that was modelled after an ancient Roman public bath. And look out for the fibre optic map of stars on the ceiling. Beautiful!
The High Line
This used to be a railroad track that carried freight trains but has since been transformed into an amazingly peaceful escape from the hustle and bustle of the city below. Put a picnic together and make your way there for a lovely day out with incredible views of both the Manhattan skyline and the Hudson River.
The Staten Island Ferry
If it’s even more amazing views that you’re after, catching the free ferry to Staten Island is a great idea. You’ll see Ellis Island, the Statue of Liberty and the Lower Manhattan skyline without spending a single penny!
