Visiting Landmarks in New York City

NYC view from The High Line

As a student in college I’m always looking to go exploring and adventuring. I especially love going into Manhattan and going to places I’ve never been before. New York City is such a beautiful place filled with culture, music, and art. I’m lucky enough to live close and be able to explore at any given day (of course, if homework or studying doesn’t impede). Doing something new with someone can bring you closer instantly because you’re making memories. Therefore, I always go with a few friends!

I’ve collaborated a list of places I think another college student or any person would enjoy visiting in New York City. Some of these places are known landmarks but others are places I’ve found myself that I am recommending to you guys.

  • Black Tap Burgers and Beer – BEST MILKSHAKES EVER!!!!!!!!
  • Chik-fil-a Times Square
  • Broadway show – I recommend Wicked, CHICAGO, and Jersey Boys
  • Times square – If you’re in New York City, it’s a must
  • Carmine’s – Family Style Italian Cuisine
  • Serafina – Upscale dining in the heart of it all and near Broadway
  • Forever 21 Times Square – With 4 floors!!!
  • The High Line – Some really beautiful sights and great picture opportunities
