48 hours may not sound like long when venturing one of the world’s most visited, but you’ll be surprised by how much you can fit in. New York City comprises five boroughs and sits where the Hudson River meets the Atlantic Ocean with Manhattan at its core, a densely populated borough that’s among the world’s major commercial, financial and cultural centers. With its iconic skyscrapers such as the Empire State Building and sprawling Central Park, NYC in 2 days is not to be missed. But with a vast choice of New York must-see historical attractions, grand structures, hidden gems, and scenic beauty to explore, you might be wondering what to do in New York in 2 days? The city is a colorful mix of outdoor activities, off-the-wall breweries, and impressive eateries, as well as dynamic art and music spaces. So from visiting the hippy Alphabet City and boarding the Staten Island Ferry to tasting your way through some of the best places to eat in New York to soaking up the vibe of a rooftop bar, this is what I think is the best way to see NYC in 2 days during your stay in the city.
