If you happen to visit the big Apple there are certain things you should be aware of. The highlights are numerous and a single visit to New York is not enough to cover everything. But there is a piece of advice - don't go for all of it, just stick to the well known highlights and your vacation will turn into a lifelong highlight.
Several places you must visit - Central park, Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty, Times Square and 5th avenue. Of course there is a lot more to visit but stick to these places.
