Is there a more beautiful city than New York ? Hard to say without fear of being wrong, because the world is full of wonderful places. However, there are not a few people who agree that it is one of the most spectacular cities that one can visit, which is why it receives the visit of millions of tourists every year who return home very satisfied after their experience.

If you want to escape to New York because you have 5 free days that you do not plan to waste, I recommend taking note of the points of interest that in my humble opinion are essential. Then, depending on how you go, you can consider seeing other things that make the Big Apple a unique city.

Times square

How many times have you seen Times Square at the movies? It is one of the most emblematic places in New York, a square that is located at the intersection of Broadway and 7th Avenue. The big billboards and the lights coming from everywhere will fascinate you, and on top of it you will have a lot of things to do besides shooting your camera like there is no tomorrow. You can go to bars, restaurants, theaters, museums …

Empire state

Few buildings are as famous as the Empire State Building. It is the third tallest building in New York thanks to its 381 meters high , the same that earned it to be the tallest in the world between 1931 and 1972. The most incredible of all is that it was built in so sunny 410 days, something which was possible thanks to the work of more than 3,000 operators. Going up to its viewpoint is highly recommended, being able to choose between floors 86 and 102.

Central park

You cannot leave New York without walking through its great lung. Central Park is an urban park that measures more than 4 kilometers in length by 800 meters in width. Waterfalls, artificial lakes, meadows, people on bicycles or running, parents walking their children … The good atmosphere that is breathed invites you to put your feet there even if it is only a couple of hours.

The fifth Avenue

Fifth Avenue
Everyone knows that the most famous street in New York is Fifth Avenue, something that is not surprising considering that it crosses the entire city from north to south. This great artery is one of the most coveted shop windows for the main fashion, jewelry or decoration brands, which is why it is almost impossible to get hold of the rental of a commercial premises.

World trade center

Whoever is seen in New York for 5 days cannot miss the opportunity to visit the World Trade Center, which is the area where the twin towers were located before the terrorist attack. They have managed to rebuild it completely and there is the imposing One World Trade Center , which is the sixth tallest skyscraper in the world thanks to its 541 meters high.

Statue of Liberty

Statue of Liberty

It has been a World Heritage Site since 1984 and an illustrious named Gustave Eiffel participated in the design, who, as you surely already know, was the creator of the Eiffel Tower.
