Definitely shopping. We’ve just expanded our shopping recommendations: view items. There is something for every taste and style! The H&M in Times Square is definitely a must-see.

Central Park

A bike ride through Central Park? Also high on the list. You can find the best bike tours here.

9/11 Memorial Museum

9/11 Memorial Museum: we visited it – you can find our report on it here. Young people, in particular, are the ideal age for a visit and can thus certainly gain valuable knowledge about the events. This is also an issue at school.

You shouldn’t have left New York without a visit to the musical on Broadway: Aladdin is the current trend! Really great – well worth it. Cheap tickets for musicals are available here, for example.


A visit to the SoHo district (A Train to Prince Street) gives you the “real New York”: It’s not so overcrowded with tourists, you can also go shopping (for girls, “forever21” on Broadway is great!) and there are great restaurants, cupcake stores and cafés on every corner.


Our 10th and last tip: go to Brooklyn, so get out of the dazzling Manhattan. New York also has other sides that you should know about. Our insider tip here: Williamsburg! The YOLO generation will feel at home here.

As you can see, New York also offers an incredible number of attractions for young people and teenagers – so if you are a sports enthusiast you should also see if there are any current events. With top baseball clubs like the New York Yankees & Mets, the New York Knicks in basketball, football, ice hockey, and soccer, you really are spoiled for choice.
