Hey /trv/ I'm Chilean and I'm going to New York today (pretty long trip), I'm going to see the Ball Drop there. But the thing is that I have a little bit more than $500 bucks to spend in whatever I want. What would be a good idea to spend it in? Also, What places should I visit?
>Empire state building
>Top of the Rock at the Rockefeller center
>Reflecting Pools at the World Trade center + the 9/11 museum is decent from what I hear
>Wall Street (various financial museums here but I just enjoy soaking up some of the architecture there)
>Walk/ bike across Brooklyn bridge
>Staten Island ferry
>Just spend some time walking around Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens, just be careful if you go past 95th st and into the Bronx and Harlem there are some pretty shit neighborhoods in Brooklyn and Queens like Jamaica, etc.
There is a shit ton more to do, I'm not a native New Yorker but those are a few of the things that come to mind.
Most of the museaums around Central Park are god-tier, the Natural History being the best i've ever seen. Guggenheim and especially MOMA are also fantastic museaums where you could spend a day.
