To help narrow the ‘must-sees’ in New York City, here are 5 special places you should check out on your trip.
1. Central Park
You have probably heard of Central Park before- and for good reason. This gorgeous park is located in the middle of high rise buildings, signature of New York City, and makes for a great place to relax and escape the hustle and bustle of the city. You can either walk through the city until you get to this dreamland, or pick up a car from the local car rental when you get there. Either way, you and your loved ones are sure to basque in the immense beauty of this park. And on a good summers day, you can enjoy some delightful weather as well.
2. Film Forum
Ever wondered what it would be like to see a classic New York film, some of which have never been shown in theaters before? Well, you can enjoy this experience at Film Forum. Some movies are geared for ‘adults’ while others are made for the whole family to enjoy. Either way you are sure to enjoy a little slice of New York City in one of the funniest ways: by film!
3. Grimaldi’s Pizzeria
“I’ll have a slice of New York style pizza”. Let’s face it, you have probably said this before in your lifetime, or you have been to a local pizza joint nearby that said they sell New York style pizza. But, until you’ve visited Grimaldi’s Pizzeria, you had realized that you really haven’t experienced the true meaning of a seriously AMAZING slice of New York City pizza. If you love pizza, then you will LOVE this pizza place. You will never be able to eat another piece of pizza after you taste one of these!
4. Empire State Building
This signature building is a must have place to visit. Why? Because it truly is a piece of history and is a great way to get the ‘feel’ of New York. Besides its immense popularity and history, it is also insanely gorgeous and offers miraculous views of New York City. What more could you possibly ask for in a monument?
5. Grand Central Terminal
First and foremost, if you don’t want to sound like a tourist, don’t call this place ‘Grand Central Station’. No, this is the Grand Central TERMINAL and it is the sole place where you will feel excitement, anxiety, fear, and happiness all in one place. This incredibly busy location gives you the biggest taste of New York City, and is definitely a place you will never forget. Go home feeling very thankful for your car and lowered population in your city!
