How to Spend Awesome Time in New York
Table of Contents
New York is a city that offers a wide range of things to do, see, and visit. It is a place to discover and enjoy. I bet everyone wants to spend there at least one day of their life. I strongly recommend coming here for a minimum of 3 days. Here is a suggested itinerary for your entertaining and exciting stay in NYC.
Day 1 – Uptown Tourist Sites
Undoubtedly, being in NYC for the first time means starting with the most famous and touristic sights. Firstly, wander around Central Park checking out its landmarks such as Sheep Meadow, Bethesda Fountain, the Mall, and the Bow Bridge. Considering the fact that they are all in the same general area, it makes it also very convenient to see them all. The park is really huge, so bring a picnic lunch with you.
Next, visit the Met Museum or the Guggenheim. The museum is extremely massive. Therefore, pick only a section or two that interest you the most. Otherwise, one day won’t be enough to cover each section. Do not forget to check out its rooftop bar which offers a fantastic view of the city.
By early evening, make a stop at Times Square, especially if you want to see its famous Broadway show. Alternatively, you can head to Top of the Rock in order to indulge in the views of NYC from the 70th floor. You will definitely be thrilled with what you see.
Day 2 – Brooklyn Bridge To Dumbo
Start your day at Clinton Street Baking Co. It is a place, where you can get seated right away only if you come during the week. On weekends, you will have to wait at least 2 hours. In any case, you need to try the food at Clinton Street Baking Co. because it tastes absolutely delicious. So, if you are having your brunch here, it should definitely include their famous blueberry pancakes. Believe it or not, they are incredible.

Next, I offer you to head to the Brooklyn Bridge, which is constantly crowded but impossible not to be passed through. The views from the bridge are absolutely fantastic. You can also stroll around Dumbo that is popular with its street art or the waterfront at Brooklyn Bridge Park full of green space.
Day 3 – Williamsburg
Williamsburg is a particularly interesting Brooklyn neighborhood with its outdoor food market located on the waterfront. Try out the food at Smorgasburg and do some shopping strolling down Bedford Ave. Williamsburg is a place that will satisfy any shopper at a less crazy pace than Manhattan.
After your shopping adventures, grab some high-quality coffee at one of the best coffee shops in Williamsburg. Sip your coffee while wandering typical Williamsburg’s streets for street art or enjoying yourself at McCarren Park.
Spending at least 3 days in New York is a great way to explore this awesome city. However, if you have an opportunity to stay here longer, do not miss it. You will always have a lot to do in NYC.
