Central Park New York
Well since I'm a native of New York City, I would invite any and all travelers to our awesome city, they can try their explorations at our best city park known as "Central Park", which is famous for showing itself in many Manhattan films showcased worldwide, nature restoration, beauty & for many social activity areas.
Central Park is also a great place to explore NYC's historical nature restorations areas, you can meet new people, and there's some pretty awesome concerts the great park has to offer during springtime & summer seasons each year, maybe even catch some cool events along the way.
There's the Great lawn or Sheep Meadow, which features a huge spacious area for group events (historically it was home for a flock of sheep back in 1864 til 1934) thus the name Sheep Meadow.
Today it serves a purpose for community engagement, sun bathers, recreation activities like frisbee throwing, hacky sack (foot bag), and many other cool group interactions, family gatherings, and social fun. Located inside of central park off of 67th Street & Central Park West.
The famous Tavern On The Green restaurant, which is a cool place where people go to dine, for tea time, and just to socialize. Located inside of central park at 67th Street and Central Park West, near the Great Lawn.
The Central Park Zoo, is a cool place located between 59th and 64th Streets, and can be visited by either bus, train, or automobile. The Zoo is open to all of the Park community, adults, children, family, and they feature many programs for tourist as well, allowing for a great experience in Central Park.
Our Lady Liberty
Satue of Liberty
Every tourist or world traveler should visit the Statue of Liberty, because it makes that of even their own great voyage to such a great historical place of New York City complete. New York City has been the most well known ports to the Eastern worlds water ways, and has allowed access to the land of the Americas via its shining ports, so all this history comes with a visit to the statue as well.
Historically our great city has been responsible for allowing immigrants from all over the globe to migrate through our ports throughout the years, and the statue represents this journey, of making New York City a home for millions of people & for all whom came to gain access to the land of opportunity, true liberty, and amongst all of our core values, that of freedom & justice for all.
The statue of liberty stands for such great virtues, and is something all New Yorkers are proud of expressing in many ways, and have grown to love & cherish, as well as celebrate by paying this great statue a visit, via ferry boat ride for a small fee of, $13 adults, $10 seniors, and $5 for children. It makes for an awesome experience climbing up the spiral stairs of lady liberty, and is perfect for taking memorable pictures as well.
I live in Queens but love visiting Manhattan travel takes time
I recently went to Manhattan for a really cool even just last evening. It was a multicultural event where folks got to see from the perspective of some of the top YouTuber's who have become successful on that platform.
I turned out to be a wonderful evening, but it did take me quite sometime to get there due to the transit system malfunctioning all throughout my travels there. I must say New York City is one of those highly predictable places when it comes to mode of travel, and especially by using their transit system or even by car. You just never know what's lies up ahead. So if you plan anything in terms of timing schedule based, maybe plan an extra hour ahead prior to your expected arrival time.
Next time I have an event like that to go to I will most definitely head out to Manhattan 3-4 hours ahead, because it was something I didn't want to miss out on.
