How To Plan Your New York Trip – From Upper East Side to Midtown

How To Plan Your New York Trip – From Upper East Side to Midtown

I remember my first visit to NYC as a tourist. I was extremely excited, happy and confused at the same time. I was so bad at planning my trip, literally I’ve spent all my time on road. And my biggest mistake was I came to New York with my car!!

Since I’ve been living in NYC last 4 years now, I thought starting my NYC diaries with this post would be a good beginning.map_hoods4

This map actually makes everything so much easier. I found this from google. You can search for New York City maps and you will find this if you want to download it to your phone.

I will write down must see places in each neighborhood. You should search them in Google Maps and save them as ‘Want to Go’. So you will not miss anywhere and you can actually save a lot of time following your map. Let’s start…
