I've always dreamed about visiting New York City. Living in Europe makes things more complicated for me, but I will do everything possible to make my dream come true.
After finding this article(MOD NOTE - Link Removed) I made it my leading destination for my honeymoon trip. My husband and I are getting married in 6 months , so hopefully, we'll be able to make our dream come true ! Can you recommend some places worth visiting in NYC?
IMO there is nothing in NYC worth visiting.

I think that there are probably lots of things in NYC worth visiting but I have never been and have no intentions of going.

My grand daughter has been several times and says it is definitely not as you imagine or as they portray it. She said that the place is dirty with trash stacked up in alleys full of rats. She also said that the whole place smells like wet boiled cabbage. I have no idea what that means but it doesn't sound very pleasant.

I have endured NY City several times for sales calls and packaging machinery show & conventions. Never came to like the town.

Once many ears ago, my wife nd I took our son and his cousin on a trip up the east coast from Philadelphia to Maine. It included Washington DC , Boston, Lexington/Concord and many revolutionary sites.

As we came out of the Tunnel into New York, there was a sign that said Up Town, and one that said Down Town. Me, I was looking for the one that said Out-a-Town.

The closest to NYC I've been was flying in to Newark on a connection flight to Charleston SC with a 2 hr layover. Never left the airport. Saw the statue of liberty from the air before landing.

I believe your grand daughter is correct.

She forgot to mention the street crime.
