- The Empire State Building.
The Empire State building never ceases to fascinate us. Located at the centre of Midtown Manhattan, the iconic, 102-storey office building is 1472 ft. high and contributes to the spectacular New York skyline. The view from the top is beyond exquisite and we have to say that nothing beats watching a sunset from here. Truly magical, there is no better way to soak up the atmosphere of NYC than to experience the breath taking beauty from here.
- Village Halloween Parade
- The Lower east Side
The lower east side has got to be one of NYC’s most fashionable neighbourhoods and certainly does have its own unique charm. Located in the southeastern part of New York City, you will be sure to discover an array of independent boutiques, diners and quirky bars. Of course one of its most famous eateries is the legendary Katz’s Delicatessen. Famous for its feature in the Hollywood hit movie’ When Harry met Sally’ this iconic diner serves the best pastrami sandwiches in New York City and lets just say it was so good we had to make multiple visits.
- Tenement Museum
Located on the Lower East side at 97 Orchard Street, the Tenement Museum is a national historic site, which was home to 7,000 people from 20 different nations between 1863 and 1935. The museum offers an intimate and fascinating insight of immigrant life, taking us through the history and experiences of generations who had built lives for themselves on the Lower east Side.
5. The Townhouse Inn of Chelsea
This time round we had the luxury of staying in the most beautiful of accommodations at the Townhouse Inn. Located in the wonderful neighbourhood of Chelsea, this 19th century townhouse is the perfect little hideaway that will make you feel right at home. The 14-bedroom hotel is friendly, personal and rather trendy, offering the warmest welcome you could possibly imagine. Its prime location, which is central to everything, makes it even more of a catch. We stayed in a lovely large sized bedroom, which was full of character and featured exposed brick walls, vintage furniture and chandeliers. The apartment also featured a grand dining room and living room area, which was equipped with beautiful homely rugs, and upon arrival we were even given our very own key so that we were able to come and go as we pleased.
