My name is Gerardo and I am 42 years old. I am originally from Guatemala but I often travel. I often go to Europe (Germany, France, Spain…), and sometimes to the US. I stayed in New York with my friend during three days. That was my first time here.
We went to the Guggenheim Museum, to the Empire State Building, to Central Park, to Times Square, to Greenwich Village, to the Statue of Liberty and to the MoMA. We also saw the Broadway musical Jersey Boys. I really liked it since there a lot of old musics, and the set up is great.. But what I liked most was the Guggenheim Museum where I could attend a temporary event: From El Greco to Picasso. It was very interesting! We wanted to go to some bars around our hotel, but they were all closed! We went to eat to Dojo, which is a vegetarian restaurant. The menu was very good, the service too. It is located on 24 Saint Marks Pl, between 2nd & 3rd Avenues, near NYU. New York is a very beautiful city. I wish I could have stayed longer: you never have enough time to visit NY. Overall, I would definitely recommend to see a Broadway show and to visit the Guggenheim Museum. Also, everywhere you go, make sure you have a reservation to avoid the lines (such as at the Empire State Building). You can also buy a CityPass, it is very helpful.
