Here are some fantastic ideas on what to do in NYC on your visit:
Empire State Building
Whether you’re celebrating a birthday or planning a proposal, there’s no better place to tell someone you like more than the Empire State Building, which is one of the tallest buildings in New York. The color of the lights that illuminate the Empire State Building at night changes every night to reflect the events that take place throughout the city / around the world (example: green lights for St. Patrick’s Day in New York, red for Valentine’s Day).
The famous New York Highline remodeling, opened in June 2011, is beautiful and really deserves a detour. The New York High Line was built on an old historic freight railroad that is also found on some streets of Manhattan, on the west side of the city. Read the different sections of Highline during your trip. Even the banks are located along your way, so if you are tired, take a break and look at the people who look at each other. You can start on the west side of Gansevoort Street and walk to 30th Street West.
You can not leave New York without seeing the amazing Brooklyn Bridge. This bridge is famous all over the world and connects the district of New York (Manhattan) with the district of Brooklyn. This bridge crosses the East River and offers a magnificent view of the financial district of Manhattan and Dumbo, in Brooklyn. Make sure you have a camera since you will surely get fantastic images. You can walk or rent bikes and ride a bike on the bridge.
Grand Central Terminal
Or as many New Yorkers love to call it Grand Central Station, it’s an amazing historic building to see in New York.

No romantic trip to New York would be complete without a walk through the famous New York Park, Central Park. Depending on the time of year when both go to New York for a romantic getaway, entertainment is always offered at the park.
