New York travel tips

1) Come to the Highline in Chelsea in New York City in the morning

If you want to enjoy the Chelsea Highline's murals and greenery in New York City without the crowd, go there in the morning. This wonderful trail will lead you to Chelsea Market; check out a lot of stores with handcrafts, designer clothes, seafood, flavours, and ready-to-eat meals.

2) Make sure to turn to less popular streets in New York City

Escape from New York City's fuss to less popular streets like Bleecker Street in Greenwich Village. Try delicious pizza, rice balls, and cannolis at numerous Italian shops there.

3) The Glossier Flagship in New York City is a paradise for women who like cosmetics

Located at 123 Lafayette Street in New York City, the Glossier Flagship is not just a cosmetics store. It's like a temple with top-quality cosmetics, diffuse light, pale-pink plaster and comfy banquette seating. The “wet bar” is a place where you can play with skincare testers there.
