4 Days in NYC

I went to NYC for the first time and I have so many things to share about this trip that I don't even know where to start. All I know is that I'm going to give details about clothes, places, recommendations, and experience.

1. What to pack for 4 days in NYC - Fall season?
I went in November during the Fall season. It wasn't snowing during those days but it was pretty chilly so here is what I wore.
  • Thermal tops and leggings 
  • 1 pair of gloves and 2 beanies
  • Thick socks
  • Sweaters and tops
  • Basic jeans (black and blue)
  • Thick and cozy scarfs
  • 3 Maxi coats (camel, yellow, grey)
  • 1 small bag for formal events
  • A backpack 
  • 1 Black dress for a special event
  • 3 Pair of boots
2. First time in NYC? Where to go?
Day 1
  • Statue of Liberty: This was one of my favorite experiences, it was very exciting and beautiful. Please make sure you buy the tickets at the actual ticketing window next to the ferry. There are a lot of guys at the park selling tickets for a higher price and its a total scam. 
  • World Trade Center: there you will also find The Twin Towers ground zero.
  • Chinatown

Day 2
  • Fifth avenue
  • St. Patrick's Cathedral
  • Top of the Rock: there are different building from where you can appreciate the amazing view of NYC. We chose Top of the Rock because it has I believe three levels and the pictures are amazing from there.
  • Empire State Building: we did not go up but we went inside to see the sculpture of the building and pictures with famous people.
  • Grand Central Terminal: If you have never seen a train station this is the perfect time to do it. You feel like in the movies. It is really cool and the architecture is beautiful.
  • The Vessel: This is a new interesting building in NYC with millions of stairs.
  • Time Square: Finally we made it to times square during the night and it was amazing and crazy.  We also went to a Broadway show (Aladdin) and it was beautiful and magical.

Day 3
  • Flatiron Building
  • Central Park: another of my favorite spots in NYC. This park is seriously breathtaking, there are so many things to do there and from every spot of the park, the view is different and amazing.
  • Bethesda terrace: located in central park and is considered the heart of the Park and is, by design, its singular formal feature and there you will also find the fount.
  • Madison Square Park

Day 4
  • Brooklyn: loooove it, it is less overwhelming than manhattan without so many people and crazy traffic.
  • Dumbo: there is located the Brooklyn bridge and from there you can also see the Manhattan Bridge. A must-have place to visit.

  • Go to at least one Broadway show, the experience is incredible you are not gonna regret it.
  • Take the subway it is really cool and use google GPS to know now which one you have to take, all the stations, the time, etc. It would tell you everything.
  • Be prepared to walk a lot so wear comfy shoes.
  • Make a list of the places you wanna visit and organize them by days and directions. This avoids you to overthink what to do or where to go.

I definitely loved my trip to NYC. It is a beautiful city that makes you feel in a different world. However, I consider that is too crazy for me haha..  I would love to visit again and do other fun things there but to live there I think is a very stressful city. But who knows I'm not gonna say I would never live there, is a big city with so many opportunities and things to do. 

To end this post I'm gonna rank my 4 favorite spots to visit in NYC
  1. Central Park
  2. Top of the Rock
  3. Brooklyn Bridge
  4. Times Square

Have you ever visited NYC? If you have let me know your favorite place and if you haven't let me know you what would you like to visit first.

with love! Maria xoxo.
