New York is a beloved place among tourists. It attracts them during the whole year. Whether it is Christmas or an Independent Day, New York is always gorgeous. Besides, would you think of a better surprise for a girl than a trip to the city of here favorite film scenes and one in a million atmosphere, where single women seeking men. Here are 5 things you must see in New York if you decide to spend a weekend there.
* Central Park
A great way to relax and unwind in a city with 8.5 million inhabitants is to go to the Central Park in New York. It’s free, there are many paths for walking and running, bike paths, ponds and a zoo. Central Park is so big that you can spend hours walking across it.
In summer, you can get to enjoy a free concert or theatrical performance. I managed to see Shakespeare once. The performance usually comes along with horrible queues, so it was a great success to see it.
I love Central Park. It’s good to sit and catch sun rays, read a book, listen to music or enjoy some wine with your girl.
Besides, there are many museums to visit around it.
* The Metropolitan Museum of Art
The Metropolitan is one of the largest museums in the world, and if you decide to visit only one museum in New York, I will recommend you to visit this one. Here you will find hundreds of pictures, paintings, historical exhibits and even a real Egyptian grave!
Usually, the Metropolitan Museum is full of people who are moving chaotically in all directions, but the building is so huge that will not have a problem finding a quiet corner and enjoy art with your beloved.
The entry fee is listed as $ 20, but in fact this is only the suggested price, you can pay any amount.
* American Museum of Natural History
It has become widely known for the Night at the Museum movie. It may take the whole day to see all the exhibits of the museum. Exhibitions devoted to nature, human history, marine life and flora are so detailed and interesting that I would advise you not to hurry. Learning about theories on people’s origin is an exciting process.
And I would not advise you to skip the section dedicated to the cosmos in the Hayden Planetarium, led by the luminous science of Neil Degrays Tyson. They have an excellent exhibition there, dedicated to the origin of the universe.
The cost of entry is also in the form of “donation”, i.e. you pay as much as you want.
* The Frick Collection
This private museum has a large collection of paintings made by famous artists (the owners of paintings are mostly Dutch), as well as 18th-century French furniture and oriental carpets. They often suggest unique exhibitions in their museum, so please check the information on their website in advance.
At the cost of all the same $ 20 with discounts to retirees and students.
* The Guggenheim Museum
In this museum you will find a famous collection of Impressionists, Post-Impressionists, Early Modernists and Modern artist. The Cylindrical Museum (designed by Frank Lloyd Wright) is considered to be one of the most important architectural designs of the 20th century. This is one of my favorite buildings in New York.
The ticket price is 22 dollars.
On Saturday evenings (17.45 – 19.45) you can also pay a “donation” and save your money.
* Broadway Show
It is unacceptable to be in New York – the theater capital of the world – and fail to attend the Broadway show. Most of all I enjoy the following ones:
The Lion King
Book of Mormon
An American in Paris
Fiddler on the Roof
Tickets can be purchased at the ticket offices of the TKTS (there is one on Times Square, for example) the day the show is shown. They also have a mobile application.
