Well, NYC is a pretty big place - with lots of options. Do you want to see a lot of the landmarks (Statue of Liberty, Brooklyn Bridge, Empire State Bldg, Time Square) or are you more interested in museums (Metropolitan Museum of Art, Guggenheim, Tenement Museum)? Some people come here to check out all the shops and 'cosmopolitan' living or mid-town and 5th Ave whereas others like to focus on the Bohemian art scene of the Village.

The question is "What side of NYC do you want to see?"

Since you're traveling in the winter, I would suggest a "NY holiday day" - ice skating in Bryant Park, looking at the window displays on 5th Ave, maybe followed by some hot-chocolate or toddy at the Marriott Marquis 'The View' lounge in Times Square (get there before 8pm to not have to pay a cover). There's also the holiday market in Union Square.

Ohmm, My friends and I like taking pictures. I think landmarks would be the side of NYC that we wanna see.
Some people told me that its hard to drive in the city, and we would rather take a train. Is it truth?
Thanks for your suggestion. Im really appreciated. Reply to this

Oh, I would never want to drive in this city. Traffic is a nightmare; parking is a mess. The subway system will take you practically anywhere in combination with the buses, and many trains come through both Grand Central Terminal (good place for photos). Plus the city is very walkable. I live in Manhattan and don't own a car - it would be more hassle than it's worth.

For other photographic landmarks, I would suggest Brooklyn Bridge, Empire State Building, Central Park (so many places just to walk and photograph), Washington Square (decked out for the holidays and interesting architecture in the surrounding bulidings) and Time Square. That hits a lot of the 'must see' places, more or less. The Brooklyn promenade also gives you lovely views of the Manhattan skyline.

Pack warm, because it has been very cold here lately, and many of the sight-seeing things are outside.

3 day schedule according to me,
DAY1 New York - Philadelphia - Washington D.C.:
Depart from NYC in the morning to walk along the historical cobblestone streets along Independence Mall State Park. See the now silent Liberty Bell echoing history in its newly renovated home at the Liberty Bell Center. Stroll through the centuries old Independence Hall and Congress Hall, the foundation for modern democracy and the birthplace of both the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. (If you choose the pickup location in Washington D.C., you may miss Philadelphia). From Philadelphia, we continue to explore America's modern day history in Washington D.C. by touring Capitol Hill, the Senate Building and the White House. We will also visit the Natural History Museum, the Air and Space Museum before heading to the Lincoln, Jefferson, and Vietnam Memorials. We will also tour the Korean War Veterans Memorial.

DAY2 Washington D.C. - Corning Glass Center - Niagara Falls:
From Washington D.C., we head to Corning Glass Center, a showcase for the entire process of glassmaking. You will witness firsthand craftsman and artisans handily working superheated glass into delicate decorative pieces. At the conclusion of the tour, you will have the opportunity to purchase an artistic piece for yourself. Afterwards, we depart for American portion of Niagara Falls, to see the majestic views of nature up close. It is important to note that no one has ever dared to conquer the American Falls in a barrel- all daredevils have concentrated on the Canadian Falls due to its larger water flow and fewer dangerous rocks.

DAY3 Niagara Falls - New York City:
We continue our sightseeing in Niagara Falls - consisting of the Horseshoe Falls, the American Falls, and the Bridal Veil Falls. We may also take a boat-ride on the Maid of the Mist (seasonal) where you can "soak" in the excitement and power of the Falls. You are sure to take home souvenir photos and videos for family and friends back home of the spectacular views. We will also head to the IMAX Theatre Niagara Falls (optional) where you can become a daredevil, witness Niagara Falls' incredible stories, and see the most complete collection of barrels that have fallen down the mighty Falls. The tour then departs for New York City for an evening arrival.
