How to Conquer NYC in 24 Hours

January 30, 2018Kelly Baum

I just got back from the most amazing work trip to one of the best places on earth…NYC! I had one work day and one PTO day where I had free reign on the city. New York can be a very overwhelming city, especially if it’s your first time going so now that I had already been in October, I had a much better handle on getting my way around and what to do! Here’s my guide to exploring NYC in just 24 hours!

How to Conquer NYC in 24 Hours
How to Conquer NYC in 24 Hours

Isn’t this watercolor book I found at the New York Public Library just THE cutest?! What a fun way to remember the city!

1.  Don’t bother waking up early

This time around I didn’t set my alarm clock for 6:45am, I set it for 8:00am. First of all, walking around this city is exhausting so you need a lot of sleep. Next, if you sleep in a little, you miss the bulk of rush hour traffic – bonus!

2.  Pick three attractions

If you only have 24 hours, there’s not a ton you can fit in. Pick the top three things you absolutely must see – I wanted to enjoy a nice posh NYC brunch, see the World Trade Center memorial, and visit the WTC memorial museum. By the time I was done with all of this, it was 4pm! Here’s some other highly recommended combos:

  • Statue of Liberty / Brooklyn Bridge / Flatiron District
  • Met Museum / Central Park / Guggenheim
  • Times Square / Rockefeller Center / New York Public Library

3. Eat a late lunch, see a show, and have a late dinner

There’s nothing more “New Yorker” than have late night pasta and drinks after seeing The Book of Mormon! I’ve made a new rule that everytime I’m in New York, I have to stop and see a show. There’s nothing like a chill two hours of entertainment that you honestly can’t get anywhere else!

4. Skip the Uber, take the subway

But only if you download the MTA subway transit app! It’s so much faster (and let’s be honest, cheaper)than Uber-ing from place to place, but just make sure you follow the app religiously or you will get lost/get on the wrong train/curse your life for not being able to afford more Ubers.

I’ll be honest, I’m pretty sad to be home. But don’t you worry, New York, I’m already planning on when I can come back!
