The sun shines upon them and at night you will witness the most energetic crowd with mesmerizingly lit buildings.

Here’s how newcomers to spend a week in New York City can spend a week and still want more of it.

Day 1 in NYC

If you have arrived NY at night, take a proper sleep (for those having a Jet Lag). Wake up early in the morning, freshen up, grab your favourite snack and head straight to Empire State Building. Spend your time looking at the world’s famous skyscraper and know the history behind it. At Afternoon, you will come to know about one of the coolest services for tourists, sightseeing tour, where you can explore the city (as the wheels of the bus go, round and round all through the town).

Evenings in NYC are meant to be spent at Times Square because we don’t want you to miss the Iconic restaurants. Hershey’s Chocolate World, NFL experience, Disney world for kids and loads of fun activities for you and your family.

Wake up from a nice slumber because putting your body at rest after a tiring day is necessary. After watching the city life closely head to Pier 83, watch the sunrise above the calm blue water and take the tour boat Circle line sightseeing Cruises and know the history of historical cruises.

By noon, you’ll find yourself roaming around in Highline Park. That has been beautifully built on old railway tracks. (You must be very hungry and tired by now) there’s a Chelsea Market nearby for you to eat all the delicious food you’ve been looking for. Spend the evening sipping on your favourite Coffee and watch NYC’s night lights. Simply hit a nearby cinema for a blockbuster movie.

Day 3 in NYC

Grab your camera and notepad coz today you are going to gather a lot of information about art, history and nature. Spend your morning at the museum mile located at the fifth avenue.

Go for fishing to a nearby lake, have a birthday party or just stride across with your all-time favourite playlist. Take a rest in the evening or wander around the Trump Tower.

Wake up early and head to St. Patrick’s cathedral to have a look at the sunrise over the rocks and see how darkness turns into hues of orange and red. St. Patrick’s depict the wholesomeness of ancient architecture and invites visitors from all over the world and especially from America.

A quick look at the Hudson yards in the afternoon won’t hurt but give you a chance to show your photographic skills (let the likes on IG begin!)

And when the sun sets in the evening pay homage to the martyrs of the 9/11 incident by visiting the 9/11 Memorial when it comes to life at night leaving its onlookers emotional and hypnotized (by the water) at the same time.
