Have been to New York several times and have stayed there for extended period every time - average 2 months in every trip. In this itinerary i have tried to use my experience of New York and create 4-5 days plan for fellow travelers who want to experience this extraordinary city. 

For first time travelers, best way to explore the city is to take a city tour on the first day. This will provide overview of the city and then you can chose the areas you want to explore deeper. I hope you enjoy the energy, vibration, culture and everything else this amazing city has to offer. 

Arguably the best skyline in the world. There are several points from where you can enjoy thebeautiful skyline of NYC - my favorites are Brooklyn Promenade and Newport/Pavonia (Jersey City). Indians may be able to recognize these two points from Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna movie. Many scenes in the movie have been shot here.

Major commercial hub in Manhattan. You must have seen this place in almost every movie that had anything to do with NYC. One of the most famous tourist attraction. Just walk around and enjoy. Tonic bar and Hard Rock Cafe in Times Square are worth visiting if you are hungry or in a mood for a quick drink. Also check out "Toys R Us" store to see huge collection of toys.

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.
