Who here doesn’t want to go to New York for the first time and experience the Gossip Girl life for at least a couple of days?

So, if you’re planning on going to the NYC for the first (or second, or third) time, you should definitely bookmark this amazing bucket list:

Broadway might not be the main reason why you’re visiting New York, but it would be such a shame to be there and not see one show in this amazing place. Yes, it can be a bit pricey, especially if you didn’t plan to be there, but you can also save this tip for your second time in NYC. The good thing is that you have a plethora of shows to choose from and they all differ in price, so you will be able to find something that you would like. Our tip is to go and see Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, if there are any tickets left, that is.

When you go to Paris, you’ll definitely visit one of its many patisseries and have a nice croissant. In the same manner, you simply have to visit one of the many dark and small bars in Manhattan, as the experience is unforgettable. If you’re a beer lover then you should definitely check out the underground Rabbit Club on Macdougal Street. It’s extremely small and dark but definitely worth it.

It’s our tip #5 but it’s probably the most obvious one. Get that Home Alone feel (especially if it’s winter, but CP is magical in all the seasons of course), and take a walk through the park. There’s something in getting lost there as well, as you will get to discover all the corners of this extraordinary place.

If you’re an alternative soul, then visiting a museum is a great way to start your NYC experience. The first museum that you could check out is the New Museum of Contemporary Art, which is very close to the Lower East Side. Another option is the Metropolitan Museum of Art (The Met) which was founded in 1870. The museum is home to more than 5,000 years of art, so you will most certainly find something that you’ll like and enjoy.
