Staying home is today’s thing. Sadly, I know many had to cancel their plans to visit New York City. I’m very sorry, I know it represents a lot of financial effort, not to mention the disappointment we feel. Anyway, you have my full support and with this article, I propose to visit New York City from your couch.
Due to Covid-19, New York City is under lockdown measures until May 15. Stay tuned for updates:

Virtual visit of the streets of New York City
Let’s get started with this virtual guided tour of New York City.
Fasten your seat belt, we’ll start with a helicopter flight. You can click or tap on the video to enjoy a 360º panorama.
We continue with a tour of the Statue of Liberty, the Empire State Building and other classic landmarks, ending at the Brooklyn Bridge. The comments are in English, it allows you to practice a little if it’s not your native language 😉
Visit the best museums in the city
Many museums in NYC open their doors virtually, free of charge. Thus, we can continue to admire some of their collections. This is the case of the Metropolitan Museum of Art (MET).
Strolling through the street art of New York City
When I started New York City Travel Tips, I recommended visiting 5 Pointz. It was a neighborhood that disappeared with the construction of homes and offices. It was a Mecca of street art. Now you find artwork in many New York City neighborhoods, especially in Bushwick. Staying at home doesn’t stop you from walking the streets of New York City. Google Maps offers you a walk to discover works by Kobra, Bansky and Keith Haring.

New York City is taking a little break. Before getting insomnia again, I hope my advice will help you get through this time smoothly. And if you’re a music enthusiast, listen to my New York City Playlists on Spotify!
Thank you for your support.
