There are so many things to do in New York, but I made your life a little bit easier. Here are five places you do not want to miss when you visit.

  1. Times Square

It is in the Midtown Manhattan section of New York City, stretching from West 42nd to West 47th Street. In Times Square, you feel like you are on television because of all the screens and lights. It is always crowded, even if it is day or night. Times Square is always busy, but the best time to go is in the night time when it is dark. It is an awesome feeling and experience when you come out of the subway and see all the lights. Also if you like to shop, Time Square is just for you. It is surrounded by famous stores and restaurants. There, you can find something fun for everyone.

  1.        Brooklyn Bridge

The Brooklyn Bridge connects the boroughs of Manhattan and Brooklyn, spanning the East River. It is a beautiful bridge with amazing views. It is really easy to get there on the subway. There are many ways to cross the bridge as well. You can wait a little bit and get a tour when you walk on the bridge, which is a really good way to get to know all the history and fun facts. Another way is to rent a bike. I do not recommend riding a bike over the Brooklyn Bridge because you are probably not going to be able to really ride a bike because it is always crowded, especially when you are new to the city. Of course, you can walk over the Brooklyn Bridge. You should be aware that it takes two hours to get back to the same side of the bridge you started on.


  1.       Eataly NYC      

“Eating Italian” represents the great Mediterranean diet and cuisine, the history and the culture of Italy. You can step back from crazy New York City to Italy. It is the place where you can buy fresh vegetables, fruit, meat and a lot more. Also, you can go there with your family and friends and enjoy a meal that is made with the best products. It is the perfect way to stop the noise and enjoy a calm and relaxing fresh meal. Eataly is in two places in NYC. Eataly NYC Downtown is in the 4 World Trade Center. Eataly NYC Flatiron is located on 200 Fifth Avenue. It is a cool place to see, and you do not want to miss it.


  1.  Estonian house NYC

An old Estonian house is a meeting place for Estonians from around the world in Manhattan. They have a lot of fun Estonian events which is fun to be a part of. Also, they have an Estonian restaurant with really good Estonian food, like blood sausage and carrot salad. If you have an opportunity to go, do it, and you will not regret it.      


  1. New York Botanical Garden

The New York Botanical Garden is a living museum. It is one of the greatest botanical gardens in the world and the largest in any city in the United States of America. You can find there is something for every age group. If you think that the Botanical Garden is only for the summer, then you are wrong. The New York Botanical Garden is fun in every season. For example, in winter they have a holiday train show, which is amazing. In the train show, they have more than 175 New York landmarks. These amazing gardens are only 20 minutes with train from the Grand Central Terminal.
