Once you land in New York, it’s baffling as to what all you can do in the Big Apple. The atmospheric energy and the vibe is like no other city. The food, art, park and theatre are at their best, inviting frequent cheap flights to New York.

 

Broadways & Time Square

Visitors love the gleaming Broadway shows as it gives an idea of what is hot and what is not. The shows taking place at Time Square will make your evening memorable. The fun part is – you will easily get tickets at good discounts.

Central Park

The Central Park is the heart of New York City. It is a forest rather with amazing things to see and do. Biking in Central Park then heading towards the iconic Brooklyn Bridge is every rider’s dream. You can do it too! Hire a bike and the rest is history. Other than biking, walking in the park is a delight.

MOMA

Heard about MOMA? The Museum of Modern Art offers free access only on Fridays from 4-8pm. The Museum of Natural History and Metropolitan Museum of Art are other famous museums in NYC.

New York Neighbourhoods

If you do not have any specific place in mind where you can spend some time, I recommend spending an evening in the theatre district and towards east village neighbourhood. Right from the east village, advance towards the intersection of Broadway and land up at Union Square.

Union Square

From the Union Square get on the 14th street bus towards an urban park, that was once a train track. The grass is as you expect in a park. You will surely enjoy!

The 23rd Street districts tend to be much more trendy and upscale. It includes:

  • Village/West Village
  • Soho
  • Chelsea
  • the East Village
  • the Lower East Side
  • and Tribeca

Explore Chinatown

If you crave for some Chinese, there is Chinatown right in the middle of New York. Shoppers will not be stranded in New York. The Union Square farmers market is amazing during summer evenings. There is an amazing Wholefoods supermarket located at Time Warner Center. It has a good seating and a microwave.

Soho

If you are looking for designer labelled merchandise, the Century 21 Discount shop near the WTC is the hotspot. Most fashion icons swarm at Soho, a place with several boutique shops.

 

The best time to visit New York is from April to June and again from September to November. If you are on a budget trip to NYC, book cheap flights to New York from Crystal Travel and explore the city from January to February.

 

The hottest month in New York is July with an average temperature of 25°C (76°F) and the coldest is January at 2°C (35°F) with daily sunshine hours. The wettest month is May with an average of 114mm of rain.
