    I go to New York City quite a few times a year mostly for pleasure and on occasional business. One thing I must say when going to NewYork is that no, you cant see all of the attractions and landmarks in one shot. Doing what is most suitable for your visit would be taking it slow and planning it out. Most landmarks and attractions you can see for free which is the cheapest and most affordable opportunities you can do while visiting New York. Take it slow and dont rush, this could cause you to miss out on the little things while your in New York
