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.
