What To See In 3 Days In New York City

So, for your next vacation, you have decided to spend three days in New York City? When exploring the Big Apple, there are many things you will come across- from the iconic Statue of Liberty to the awe-inspiring Grand Central Terminal. 
 
Whilst working on your 3 days itinerary for New York City, you will for sure be adding The Metropolitan Museum of Art to your list. One of the most expansive art museums in the world, the Metropolitan Museum of Art houses more than two million works of art spanning thousands of years. And it will be a crime if you don’t visit the Statue of Liberty on the first day itself! A popular attraction, Lady Liberty has become a prominent part of the New York skyline. While there, you can also check out Ellis Island along with the Immigration museum. While in New York, who can forget Times Square? The Square is one of the reasons why New York is called ‘City that never sleeps’! Cinemas, Broadway theatres and neon billboards trying to advertise everything, from style and fashion magazines to upcoming cinemas form the crux of the square.

In your New York City Itinerary 3 days, include a visit to the 9/11 Memorial Museum. A humbling experience, the museum is dedicated to both, the victims of the tragedy as well as the people involved in the rescue missions. Next stop can be the gorgeous St. Patrick’s Cathedral. Located on 5th Avenue, around 5 million people visit the cathedral every year! And with valid reason- its superb architecture, intricate interiors and interesting history should not be missed while on your New York tour. If you are in the city with your kids, you have to go to Bryant Park. Full of green lawns, fountains, sculptures and a serene lake, your kids will love this park, and you will too. Your family will also enjoy a visit to the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum. Interesting interactive displays add to the charm of this museum.

How can you not see the Empire State building while in New York?! This iconic skyscraper has102 floors (381 metres) and has 73 elevators. Trivia- the building was constructed within 1 year and 45 days. If you want to shop till you drop, why not head over to a National Landmark of United States- the Rockefeller Center. The place is a complex structure of 19 buildings. Make sure you allocate a lot of time to explore this shopping centre. A cherry on the cake will be checking out Grand Central Terminal. Described as the world’s loveliest station, the terminal has mesmerizing architecture and a spellbinding history. Do take a audio guides tour in NYC to know more about this fascinating station. 

End your New York vacation with a live jazz performance at Birdland. The club has been host to Jazz Legends and musicians like Michel Petrucciani, Kurt Elling, Diana Krall, Michel Legrand and Oscar Peterson to name a few. A perfect way to say goodbye to the city that never sleeps.
