First thing first, however touristy it maybe we had to see the Times Square foremost. Stumbling and finding our way through the streets and avenues we finally reached the Mecca of a shopaholic and dived straight in the outlets. Because we were given limited cash we shopped only in affordable stores. Forever21, American Eagle, H&M, Charlotte Russe, Victoria Secrets it can go on forever. The thrift stores on 5th Avenue are also worth a checkout. They have some vintage stuff doing rounds at a very cheap rate. A Parisian boutique was one where I got a pair of dramatic shoes. The more you explore and indulge more exciting it gets. We ate our lunch at Panera bread- a must visit eatery when in States. New York City’s Hard Rock Café is an inevitable place on the itinerary. We all know how HRCs are, well this one is a magnified version

Who doesn't know 'The' Times Square of New York? But I will have to say, the city lights are dimmer against the lights in and around the Times Square. May it be new years eve or any other day, the Jumbotron has the best of the advertisements in the industry.

Central Park - New York

A perfect picnic spot, one can spend a day walking, jogging, cycling or just doing nothing. Wish i could have got more time to spend there and explore the multiple 'things to do' inside the park

Located right in the heart of the city and deemed as the most visited urban park in the United States, the Central Park is one of those many places that makes New York a great place to live. Housing a vast span of around 800 lush green acres and having beautiful collection of flora and fauna, it is also one of the most filmed locations in the world. It also has a special place dedicated specifically for kids to enjoy around having beautiful slides, swings and climbing areas and is one of the best things to do in NYC.

Empire State Building - New York

This 103 story tall structure in the midtown manhattan provides the best view of the whole of the neighbourhood. If you haven't made an early reservation for the observation deck, you will have to wait in a long queue and be sure to wait for atleast two good hours.

Wall Street - New York

Wall Street is mecca of capitalism. This is the place that controls finance of the world. Take a walk from 9/11 memorial at one end and pass through St Paul's Chapel all the way to Battery park. Brooklyn Bridge is walking distance from the memorial. Do try Burrito's at Chipotle restaurant. There is a discount store Century 21 nearby of you are looking for some bargain.

Elizabeth Street - New York

Another beautiful and refreshing walk is the Elizabeth Street where many of the boutiques are located. Even if you don’t feel like buying anything, the street is generally quiet and clean and those are two serious rarities in New York. In case you get hungry along the way, there are some great cafes already mentioned that you can hop into.

Sweet & Vicious - New York

NoLITA has equally fashionable happy hours. Sweet and Vicious is a stylish, medieval looking bar where you can get cheap margaritas and have a lot of fun. Try to snag a seat outside if the weather is nice, but the indoor experience is equally grand. It has candle-lit corners for a romantic dinner experience and a fine back garden to sit back and enjoy your meal in open air.

Lombardi's Pizza - New York

Lombardi's was the first Pizzeria in the US and bought the Neapolitan Pizza from Italy to NYC. This place is popular amongst locals and tourists alike. A great place to devour the awesome New Style Pizza and much more. You are on your way to a guilt trip after this. It is one of the best restaurants in New York.

Resurrection - New York

Shopping is must in NoLITA. But, don't expect your bargaining skills to do the trick. Surely there sales here, but otherwise the prices are a bit high. However, Resurrection is one of the cool vintage stores that are worth the price you pay. If you can't get your self to buy the treasures that lurk inside, there are also a few shops that specialize in socks and pajamas. But, for any fashion lover, a visit to Resurrection is a must.

Cafe Habana - New York

A great mix of Cuban and Mexican cuisines, this restaurant is praised by everyone who visits it. Eating in Nolita is an experience in itself and this cafe brings in a great amount of variety to add to it. Mexican Corn on a stick and The Cuban Sandwich are two of the must-try's over here. It is a nice place to relax and indulge.

McNally Jackson Books - New York

A quite and comfortable place to sit and read, the NoLITA experience is incomplete without a visit here. This little gem is not easily spotted but will compel you to come back on your next trip. You can sit here for hours and get lost in your own world. Their cafe comes handy when you feel like grabbing a quick bite. Travelers love it here because not only is there an extensive travel guide section but their two floors are arranged by geographic location.

Delicatessen - New York

This is my personal favorite for brunch because the sangria I order comes in a huge glass and the food is delicious. It’s also a prime people-watching spot because it’s right at the border of Soho yet far enough away to avoid the Broadway madness. The restaurant's a bit small but the menu is delightful!

CONDOR - New York

Condor has a handpicked collection of clothing, accessories and shoes. It is owned by Loriann Smoak who is quite the traveller. This becomes obvious when you see the merchandise. Everything showcased her is selected very carefully and thus you will surely want to buy everything you pick out. Go culture crazy in Condor!

Tacombi at Fonda Nolita - New York

This indoor Taco truck adds a whole new experience to Mexican eating. The novelty is brought in through the ambience of a garage and eating out of a van/truck. The menu is a bit unconventional from your usual Taco experience and dollars have to be exchanged for the local currency (blue poker chips worth $4 each, the price of a taco.) You feel like you have entered into another dimension altogether.

EN Japanese Brasserie - New York

Our favorite “traditional” Japanese restaurant in New York City is En Japanese Brasserie which is located in the West Village. En Japanese Brasserie is the American outpost of several sister restaurants in Japan. This close connection to the restaurant scene in Japan is apparent in the quality and flavor of the food. The West Village space is modern and airy, exactly how we envision a Manhattan restaurant to appear. Although En Japanese Brasserie feels trendy, it does not distract from the food and service which are impeccable. The meal is always visually pleasing and incredibly fresh and tasty. Homemade tofu is the star here. The tofu is prepared six times each day, ensuring exceptional quality. We particularly enjoy the pickled vegetable appetizer and “O-Banzai” or small Kyoto style dishes. If you enjoy sake or Japanese shochu, the selection here is extensive. There are literally pages of the beverage menu dedicated to these uniquely Japanese spirits. If you aren’t sure what to try, no worries! Your server can guide you to the perfect selection, including sake flights. En Japanese Brasserie is a wonderful restaurant for a delectable meal. It will satisfy everyone in your party!

Hyatt Union Square New York - New York

Last summer, my friend Rimzim Dadu and I stayed at Hyatt Union Square, New York. What can I say, it was the perfect choice!! Imagine this, you’re just a walking distance from shopping heavens like 5th Avenue, SoHo, Nolita etc and a quick ride away from Times Square, Central Park, Empire State and Rockerfeller Building! Yes, that’s Hyatt Union Sqaure for you. Another thing that I loved about the hotel was its boutique-hotel vibe. The staff was polite and dressed in we-are-not-so-stuck-up uniforms. It’s a smaller, more chilled-out Hyatt with a great roof-top. I liked that! The bed was super and the shower was absolutely brilliant (am I the only one who’s particular about water pressure? It has to be just right!). I wish our room faced the bustling road than the back of another building and a bathtub in the room wouldn’t have hurt, although to be honest you’d rather be on the streets soaking up the city than bath-salts in a fancy tub especially if you’re there just a couple of days.

Flatiron Building - New York

If you move along the 5th Ave towards Empire State Building, there will be almost nothing unsual in the urbanscape of the space but the minute you look to your 12 o'clock, you see a building with a steep egde, almost like a triangular edge. Just when you will think to yourself if it were habitable, you should learn that this building is completely functional and there are offices on every edge that desnt quite look like a livable area. Strange but architecturally possible!

The High Line - New York

An evening walk along the verdant High Line watching the pleasant sunset is one of the best things to do in the NYC. It is virtually like floating and flying high 25 feet above the ground surrounded by serene greenery and tended plantings. You can also capture wonderful photographs in and around the place and get some good quality nature shots if you are interested in.

Penn Station - New York

I was travelling for New Jersey into New York through their rail services. As soon as you reach the platform, thousands of commuters are waiting for their trains and many are getting out of the station just like me. If you are here for the first time, it is a little difficult to figure out the exits, since it has more that 4 exits opening on different streets. For people waiting for their trains, Penn station has alot of eating joints and pharmacy etc. Penn Station is built like one of those colonial train stations with almost everything painted Golden.

St Patrick Cathedral - New York

After reading so many mentions of this cathedral, it was of utter importance to visit this great peace of art and architecture. St. Patrick's is mighty as it appears and holy as it sounds. Situated amidst busy street of the 5th avenue of New York, this place of God transcends as much peace that one might find hard to get in a busy place like Manhattan. St. Patrick has held burial and funeral masses of many like Ed Sullivan, Andy Warhol etc.
