3 days in NYC: my personal itinerary

sunny 23 °C

With so much to do in NYC, you can definitely waste a few hours if you don't plan well. Especially if you only have 3 days to spend. I'm detailing my personal itinerary I've talked about in my travel microblog.


Day 1: The first day is a good time to spend in Midtown. Explore Rockefeller Plaza (head to the Top of the Rock for a great view of the city) and make sure you can stop by TKTS Discount Booths and pick up day-of tickets (or book in advance) to see a Broadway show. From Times Square you can wander through Bryant Park and go to Grand Central Terminal (the Terminal is beautiful). After the Broadway show, check out the Empire State Building at night. Elevators go up to the top until 1 a.m, great time to see NYC shining.


Day 2: head to Downtown. In the morning (after rush hour), grab a round trip on the Staten Island Ferry (it's free!) where you'll see the Statue of Liberty. And then go to the Brooklyn Bridge. You can then grab some lunch in Chinatown (so cheap and so good!). In the afternoon go for a walk at coffee shops of the Lower East Side. Grab some pastrami at the iconic Katz's Deli. Then, you can stop at a bar and get a drink.


Day 3: Explore Uptown. Go for a run in Central Park. Grab a sandwich for lunch and head to the Metropolitan Museum or the MOMA (if you're more into contemporary art). You'll probably spend a few hours in each of them. You can also just head up to Harlem for authentic soul food.
