Things to see & do in New York, USA

story by: Inspire USA

New York City is one of those amazing melting pots of a city that’s worth falling in love with again and again. Every time you go back, you find yourself wanting more, and every time you go back, you discover new experiences. After you feel the emotion of the World Trade Centre site, hit the unbelievable shopping districts of Central Manhattan. Finishing the day at a restaurant in Little Italy with a huge glass of red wine has never felt so rewarding. Amongst the concrete giants that make up New York City’s amazing skyline are the street vendors. The best corn beef sandwiches in the world are on a little stall on the corner of East 14th Street and Broadway. You must try one! The list of things to do never ends. You absolutely have to go just to see and believe the vibe of this extreme metropolis.
