Grand Central is very famous landmark in Midtown Manhattan. You can easily get to Grand Central Terminal by taking a cab or the subway.

My favorite part of Central Park is Sheep Meadow, it is a huge area that is great for picnics and hanging out with friends while getting amazing views of the city.
Soho is hands down my favorite spot in New York City. Soho is a neighborhood in lower Manhattan, it is mainly known for it’s unique shops and artsy architecture.
