What Things Can I Do In New York City This Weekend

By: Sahil Luthra

Whether you’re planning for a weekend or you’ve been here for years, there’s so much to see that you’d need a lifetime to do it all.

1. Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island

The Statue of Liberty is the symbol not just of New York but of America. And Ellis Island epresents our nation, too after all, almost half of Americans can trace their ancestry back to this one island.

2. Broadway

The Theater District is home to over 40 Broadway theaters, which is why New York offers some of the best live theater on the planet.

3. Brooklyn Bridge

Walking the Brooklyn Bridge is an easy, fun adventure and the perfect excuse to visit Brooklyn. The views are unparalleled, and the bridge itself is a wonder to experience on its own.

4. Central Park

There’s nothing that beats a sunny day in Central Park. Definitely save this one for a nicer day rainy weather doesn’t allow you to truly enjoy the beauty that is essentially New York’s backyard.

5. Little Italy and Chinatown

One of the many wonderful things about New York is its diversity, and that is what you’ll experience when you visit Little Italy and Chinatown.

6. Metropolitan Museum of Art

It’s the largest art museum in the United States and among the top visited museums in the world. The permanent collection alone has over 2 million works.

7. Grand Central Terminal

About three quarters of a million people pass through this place each day, making it one of the biggest and busiest stations in the entire world. Its size is impressive, but its architecture is worth admiring, too.

8. The High Line

One of New York’s most unexpected attractions is tucked away on the west side of Manhattan. It winds back and forth along 10th Avenue and soars 30 feet above ground. Welcome to the High Line.

9. Financial District

Don’t let the name fool you. There’s so much more to this neighborhood than money. The Financial District has a richer history (pun not intended but kind of nice) than any other neighborhood in New York.

10. 9/11 Memorial

A moving piece of artwork called “Reflecting Absence,” two memorial pools stand in the footprint of the towers, surrounding the museum on either side.
