THE ULTIMATE GUIDE TO NEW YORK CITY


New York City is one of the greatest cities in the whole world, a city that is flocked to by millions, from all over the world, every year. Without further ado here’s a ultimate guide to New York City, including a selection of activities you should check out, restaurants you should dine at and places you should see!

Three neighborhoods in New York you need to visit:


Nolita:
Sometimes written as NoLita and deriving from 'North of Little Italy': a super cool neighbourhood packed full of Instagram worthy cafes and streets in including the infamous pink Cha Cha Matcha cafe. 
Meatpacking:
If you love the wide roads, the uber cool restaurants and the New York vibe, this is the right place - a must when visiting!

Soho:
From Spring Street to Prince Street, Soho is where it's AT! From high end boutique clothes stores; to infamous restaurants such as By Chloe, Jacks Wife Freda and Balthazar.

Three must-visit Restaurants recommendations:
Much like brunch there are quite literally hundreds of options for dinner. You’ll be teased with all manner of restaurants and cuisines. There’s quite literally something for everyone, if you can book at the place of your choice then make sure you do. 
Chelsea Market: 
Even though this isn't technically a restaurant, you simply have to go to Chelsea Market, it's an incredible hub of delicious food stalls, bars and sweet treats.
WHERE: 75 9th Ave, New York
Shake Shack:
Shake Shack is an obvious choice when it comes to New York/America, but it's a must-visit! Try visit the original Shake Shack.
WHERE: Madison Square Park

By Chloe: 
By CHLOE is a must when visiting New York, the restaurant offers wholesome, plant-based food that fuels and energizes without compromising flavor, taste or satisfaction.
WHERE: 185 Bleecker St, New York

Three hotels recommendations for your trip:
When choosing where to stay, I highly recommend booking a hotel that’s in downtown New York, aka anywhere that’s not Midtown. Midtown is great to stay in if you’d like to be near all the main sightseeing spots (Top of the Rock, Times Square etc) however if you’re wanting to visit New York to experience “real” New York life, then downtown is the place for you. 
W New York:
The locations is amazing
, the decor is super cool/luxe and the vibe is everything you want from a hotel!
WHERE: 541 Lexington Ave
Aloft Brooklyn:
If it was your first visit to Brooklyn, the hotel was in a great location, just a 10 minute walk from the bridge!
WHERE: 216 Duffield St, Brooklyn

Wellington:

Situated in the very heart of New York City; the Wellington Hotel is just a stones throw from central park and just a few blocks from Times Square - the location couldn't be anymore perfect!
WHERE: 871 7th Ave, New York

Three things to do during your trip to New York:
Much like any major city in the world, there’s plenty of places to go play tourist in New York, so if you want to spend part of your trip sightseeing, then here’s a little list of our favourite spots to do so!


Walk the Brooklyn Bridge:

Walking the Brooklyn Bridge is one of the favourite things to do in New York. If you get the chance, walk it during the day and at night too for a completely different view of the city!
Top of the Rock:
Visiting the Top of the Rock is another favouriteq whilst in New York, if you wake up early you can catch the sunset and it is magical! There's just something about seeing such a stunning city from that view. Worth a visit!
WHERE: 45 Rockefeller Plaza

Walk in Central Park:
You can't visit New York and not
 take a walk in Central Park, it's beautiful and it's free.

Three must-try brunch spots:
This is the mecca of all New York weekend activities and for good reason too, New York does brunch pretty damn well. There’s so many different places to choose from, you’ll actually be struggling to pick.
Jacks wife Freda:
'The' place to brunch in New York city, a local for any cool kid of the city and super popular amongst tourists! Expect a wait, but It worth it. And their hot chocolate is delicious.
WHERE: 224 Lafayette Street
The Smith:
You'll be pushed to find anywhere that does brunch quite like The Smith. They have 5 locations in the city.
WHERE: 1900 BROADWAY
Two hands:
Another raved about brunch spot in NYC, situated in uber-cool NoLita, Two Hands is well worth a visit during your next trip!
