New York is a city with lots of residents and even more tourists! Some voices might tell you, to avoid certain places. Actually you shouldn´t avoid anything in New York. Not for nothing, it’s the city that never sleeps and you shouldn´t miss anything. You want to sleepp? Go home!
In this post, we want to show you the most crowded places in New York. But they’re not less beautiful or interesting. On the contrary: In New York, they are iconic.
We were there in March 2015. This has to be considered as places like Central Park or Brooklyn Bridge Park usually belong to the crowded places as well. But not in those cold days of March 2015!
1. Times Square
The most crowded place in New York is definitly Times Square. The most overexposed place of the world attracts people from all over the world! We recommend you to consider about two things:
– Try to not get blind by watching the advertisement for too long, especially when it’s dark.
– Be careful, when you’re surrounded by people with selfie-sticks. They might carve your eyes out. It actually didin’t happen to us, but the risk is very high here!
It’s maybe New York’s most photographed place. By the way: There are a lot of flagship stores here.
2. Rockefeller Center
The viewing platform of Rockefeller Center competes with Times Square when it comes to attracting tourists. In spite of cold temperatures and steep prices, many gather on ‘Top of the Rock’ to enjoy the view over this overwhelming city. It was beautiful to see the will to survive of people by cuddling like penguins and getting warm, while it’s freezy and windy up there.
On the one hand SoHo is a shopping dream, on the other hand it was a nightmare. It was crowded, even on a Monday morning! The buildings are beautiful and the selections of stores will not disappoint you. When it comes to sneakers, it’s worth to compare as every store has different prices.
You can also find a lot of people at 9/11-Memorial including a lot of police men. I think, it’s a very beautiful monument!
5. Fifth Avenue
The most famous of the expensive shopping streets, Fifth Avenue cannot be missed in this list. Well, there is not much to say, as we had to pass this street anyway and could do a little bit of window shopping! The prices here are out of space!
6. MoMA (Museum of Modern Art)
Of course it was our own fault going to MoMA on a Friday afternoon. Sponsored by UniQlo, you can enjoy free entry to one of the most interesting and famous museums in the world. Regular entrance: 25$ for adults.
7. Bryant Park
And there was Bryant Park. One would expect it is too cold to sit outside here, but not when it´s a sunny day and you want to enjoy your lunch outside. Honestly: I wouldn´t mind spending my lunch time here in this Park, although it is crowded. When it comes to beautiful places, people are able to accept a lot of things!
8. Brooklyn Bridge
Cold, windy, crowded. On the hand, you have a beautiful panoramic view. On the other hand, the most famous bridge in the world is swinging quite a lot. Well, for all the people out there, suffering from the same problem: Just try to forget it and enjoy the view!
