What to see in New York by neighborhoods
As we mentioned in the preparations for the trip to New York during Holy Week to do a planning of what to see in New York It is not always an easy task, but the opposite. That has been the main reason why we propose to write a extra post on this trip to New York in which to explain the itinerary, more or less detailed with all the places what to see in New York by neighborhoods.
The first thing to do is get used to and identify the different neighborhoods that we find in both Manhattan and the Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens or Staten Island, places that we will also know these days, although to a lesser extent.
2nd day - March 25 - Friday
(Tomorrow) The second day of trip to New York We will start touring a part of Midtown, approaching Times Square again, to have that vision early in the day that allows us to take a few minutes to take some photographs without too many people, following Broadway until we reach NYC & Company where we will pick up our New York CityPASS and follow the route towards Upper West Side, passing through Hearst Tower, Columbus Circle, to enter later in Central Park, to know the Strawberry Fiedls area, the memorial to John Lennon and arrive at what will be one of the sour cherries of the day, the Museum of Natural History, where we will spend the rest of the morning and one of the 10 best free things in New York.
Another good option to save time and money if you do not have the CityPASS, is to book the New York Explorer Pass with free access to 3, 4, 5, 7 or 10 of the main attractions of the city, or book the New York Pass with admission to more than 100 attractions in New York, skipping the long lines with both cards.
You can find more information in this post about the New York Pass, in this one about the New York Explorer Pass and in this one of the New York CityPASS.
From here, and how could it be otherwise, we will approach the statue of Alice In Wonderland, the most famous of Central Park to continue our walk to Belvedere Castle, the most emblematic building of the park that houses an observatory.
From there, we will approach Shakespeare Garden, especially beautiful when spring begins to emerge and the first flowers of the year appear.
From here we will reach the oldest monument in the city, the Obelisk or Cleopatra's Needle, built around 1450 BC, along with another equal, which is today in London and was a gift from Egypt.
Finally we will approach Great Lawn, the most famous green grass area in Central Park, which we have seen so many times in the movies.
