A Long Weekend in New York

Post written by Kate Robinson.
How things have changed since the turn of the century……. Before, no one would even have thought of going to New York for the weekend. However, the rise in competition between airline companies and the subsequent fall in the price of flights means that you can travel from destinations all over Europe to New York for the weekend. But the question is….can you fit the Big Apple into one weekend? Yes you can…so here is my guide to a weekend in New York.
The key to enjoying a weekend in New York is to make sure you arrive late Thursday afternoon or evening so that you get a good nights sleep and wake up fresh on Friday morning ready to explore.
Friday
Start Friday off by going for a walk in Central Park before heading further into the urban jungle to discover some of the tourist attractions that New York is so renowned for. If I could recommend just one I would say the Statue of Liberty because that is the first thing that always comes to my mind and makes me think of the city.
After visiting this iconic statue you should head to Broadway and try and get tickets for a show. Once you have your tickets, go for something to eat before it starts.
Saturday
Start Saturday off by having a good breakfast at one of my favourite places, The Standard Grill at 848 Washington Street at West 13th Street. Here you can sample all sorts of tasty treats.
You cannot go to New York without shopping (especially if you are female). That is why you have to take a trip to Fifth Avenue in Manhattan or go to Brooklyn which is otherwise known as the borough of boutiques.
When the sun goes down New York comes alive…it is the city that never sleeps after all. So make sure you get ready to party. Enjoy a nice meal and then cocktails or drinks. If you want to party in style you should eye out a VIP club.
Sunday
Even though you are tired after your night out on the town….try to get up early and make the most of your last day in New York. I would recommend a good breakfast to give you the energy you need to get through the day.
Sunday is the perfect day for visiting museums. I would recommend one of the top NY museums – the New Museum of Contemporary Art – this is a must-see.
Enjoy a good lunch before getting ready to head to the airport for your flight home. You see…New York can be fitted into one weekend. The recipe is enthusiasm, energy, determination and adventure.
