My 72 Hour New York City Itinerary

There is A LOT to do in New York City, it’s impossible to see even all of one borough in a weekend… let alone bounce between them. Usually, when I visit New York City, I stay in Manhattan and will usually only venture out to Brooklyn. I know a lot of people will say that the real New York City lies in the outer boroughs, however, I’m 100% a Manhattan girl. Since my last trip was just for a weekend, I wanted to walk you guys through what I did to maximize everything that I wanted to do! If you want to see how I would recommend planning your trip check out THIS post on how to plan your weekend.

My trip officially started on Wednesday, where I flew into Boston to meet up with my BF. The next morning we took the train into Penn Station from Back Bay in Boston. It’s a 4-hour train ride, so I would highly recommend downloading a good book and some Netflix.
