If you’re going to NYC, seeing a Broadway show is a must. If you really want to see a particular show or if you want only prime seats for any show, book tickets as early as you can. A few weeks in advance should be fine for most shows, but you will want to book a month or two in advance for Saturday evening performances of the most popular shows.

2. Be A Foodie At Chelsea Market


New York is one of the best food cities in the world, so it can definitely be difficult choosing where to eat. If you’re a foodie, head to Chelsea Market, one of the greatest indoor food markets in the world. There are more than thirty-five vendors, and some of the offerings include currywurst, tahini and turmeric hot chocolate, sushi, oysters, and doughnuts.
