A Week in New York Itinerary

A week in New York is just about the perfect amount of time to see what the city has to offer at a leisurely pace.

With so many things to do in New York, you will want to have at least a rough New York itinerary plan, so you avoid wasting time deciding where to go and what to see.

Day 1: 9/11 Memorial and Museum

Made up of twin reflecting pools representing the footprints of the Twin Towers, and home of the largest man-made waterfall of North America.

At the Memorial you will also see the inscriptions of the names of the victims of the 1993 and 2001 terrorist attacks. The Museum will guide you through the history of 9/11.

Day 2: Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island

The symbol of the United States, the statue, which is actually located in New Jersey territory, was donated from France in the 19th century and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art (MET) has a collection spanning from ancient Egyptian artifacts to contemporary art. It’s so big that you need a full day to visit.

Day 3: Metropolitan Museum of Art 

From the observation deck, you will get some of the most impressive views of New York. Completed in 1931, back then it was the tallest building in the world.

Day 4: Empire State Building 

Day 5: DUMBO 

DUMBO (Down Under Manhattan Bridge Overpass) is one of the places to visit in Brooklyn. It’s a fantastic photo spot.

Day 6: Harlem

This part of town, which in the 20th was a terribly run-down borough known for gang activities, is now a popular place to go see gospel choirs. It’s honestly a touristy thing to do.
