48 hours in New York City
With it’s captivating spirit, frantic pace, and vast diversity, New York City brings all ways of life together. Whether you are interested in fashion or not, at some point in your life you have probably dreamt of one day venturing out to the “Big Apple.” Well now is the time to book your flight, because NuView has your trip all planned out for you!
Morning: Start your day off by grabbing a cappuccino and a decadent slice of avocado toast from Two Hands on Mott St, then walk a few blocks over to SOHO and peruse the many shops and boutiques the neighborhood has to offer.
Afternoon: Now that you have probably walked off your breakfast, head on over to Nolita to have a quick lunch at The Butcher’s Daughter, we recommend the margarita pizza or the butcher’s burger. For the next stop you might want to hail a cab or swipe your metrocard to get to the Brooklyn Bridge. Upon arrival you can either rent a bike or walk the bridge because the view is a must see. Following your trip to the bridge start making your way towards Midtown Manhattan.
Night: Put on your most fabulous outfit and get down to Times Square, it would not be a trip to New York if you did not at least stop by. From there it will just be a short walk to whichever broadway show you have selected (although we highly recommend Wicked). After the show stop by New York staple, Shake Shack for a late dinner.
Morning: After your long day of exploring you are going to wake up and need a strong cup of coffee and a blueberry muffin, and Ralph’s Coffee Shop is the place to get it. Located in POLO’s flagship store, the coffee shop is tastefully decorated and has an illuminating neon sign that is just perfect for your Instagram.
Afternoon: Once you have had your morning fix you are located right between Central Park and Madison Avenue. Wander through or window shop at some of New York’s most coveted designer stores.
Then when your wallet starts crying take a break and head over to Central Park. Grab yourself a Nathan’s Hot dog, scope out a cozy rock, and take in the cityscape. If you are needing an extra boost of caffeine, trek over to Cafe Henrie, get seated at a pink table, sip your coffee and enjoy the aesthetically pleasing decor.
Sunset: Head to the Top of the Rock to see the breathtaking view of New York City and the Empire State Building when the sun is creating beautiful shadows and reflections off of surrounding buildings.
Night: For a classic New York slice of pizza or a traditional Italian dish head over to Patsy’s Pizza in East Harlem. Since establishment in 1933, they have become a staple in the city. They are best known for their signature coal-fired pizza. After dinner you can head to the closest Milk Bar Bakery and get their cereal milk soft serve.
