The Greenwich Village, or ‘The Village’ to the New Yorkers, is a must-visit place for anyone having a passion for music. The aspirant musicians gather into this Bohemian neighbourhood where live blues and jazz events take place frequently.
If you are a history buff, you shouldn’t miss a visit to Brooklyn, the trendiest borough of New York. The Statue of Liberty is located here. You can also stroll through the Promenade or just enjoy the city’s amazing skyline.
No Shopaholic should miss going to the Fifth Avenue, a thoroughfare in Manhattan. It houses the outlets of almost all the popular retailers. There are also many indie boutiques from talented, budding designers.
Do you have an itch for sports? Plan for a trip to Madison Square Garden (MSG), the home of the Knicks and New York Rangers. Book tickets early if you want to catch a game because matches sell out pretty fast.

The cultural lesson of the city will be incomplete without a trip to Harlem, the great African-American hub. Don’t forget to visit the Apollo Theatre, the platform that helped to promote the famous artists including the Jackson Five and James Brown.
