City Guides New York North America

NYC Bucketlist

January 20, 2017

It’s no secret that New York is one of my favourite cities of all time. Just like thousands of others, I have been mesmerised by ‘the city that never sleeps’; its bright lights, the constant buzz and the sense of hope that you just can’t escape from in the concrete jungle.

I’ve now been lucky enough to visit New York twice – the first time for my 21st birthday back 2013 and the second back in March 2016. Whilst I have been able to tick off many of my must-sees there are still plenty of things on my NYC Bucketlist..
