New York travel tips

1) Check out the new High Line in New York City

Usually, tourists don't even know about the High Line in New York City. It was opened not so long ago. An abandoned elevated railway is a gorgeous recreation area now. The entrance is free. The best coffee nearby is the Intelligentsia Coffee Highline Coffeebar, and the best seats are on the green grass.

2) Walk around the busiest district of New York City

Visit Chinatown in New York City and dive into exotic storefronts. When you walk along the vivid streets, visit different shops for anything from rice-paper lanterns and ‘faux-lex’ watches to tire irons and a pound of pressed nutmeg. You can find volunteers that can help you at the intersection of Walker, Baxter and Canal Streets.

3) Choose Brooklyn for brunch in New York City

If you like to sleep long, Brooklyn has great options for branches in New York City. Visit the CityMilk & Honey cafe at 1119 Newkirk Avenue; order the French toast with crème brûlée sauce. It is perfect to start your day!
