In the state of New York lies "The City That Never Sleeps," which is New York City. New York is also referred to as New York State to avoid the confusion with New York City, the state's most populated city and economic center.

The Top 5 reasons are in fact destinations in New York, and they will surprise you in your first visit. Classy hotels, structures, financial districts, and shopping centers are just a few of the popular destinations inside of New York. Our Top 5 in the list are absolutely going to make you want to visit New York as soon as possible.

According to Telegraph, one of the reasons you should visit New York is the apartment building, The Whitby. The apartment is a 16-story property located in the heart of Midtown Manhattan. In the ground floor of the apartment lie the Whitby Bar, a drawing room, orangery, terrace, 120-seat cinema, and 86 rooms and suites. This venue falls to the Top 1 of our list for its high standard and amusing amenities.

Our Top 2 on the list is Brooklyn Bridge which is located in Dumbo, Brooklyn. This coming February will be a grand opening for a glassy 194-room property on the riverfront of Dumbo. Tourists are to expect a farm-to-table restaurant, adequate green space, a rooftop bar and an exquisite plunge pools. In addition, visitors will also be having a spectacular view of the Manhattan skyline and State of Liberty. The soon to open hotel is located at 60 Furman St, Brooklyn, New York 11201.

On our Top 3 on the list is the Blue Ribbon Federal Grill. The restaurant owners are Bruce and Eric Bromberg, and they will be serving mouth watering grilled meats. The Blue Ribbon is located at the ground floor of luxe residence hotel AKA Wall Street, which is opposite of the Federal Reserve Bank in Fidi (the Financial District). Expect exquisite artisan cocktails, superior cuts of aged beef, and many signature dishes of the brothers. The restaurant is located in 84 William St, New York 10038.

According to Go World Travel, the Times Square is one of the best destinations in New York. The commercial neighborhood is located in New York City, and it was once a place to avoid. Now the Times Square is shining with activities, and huge electronic billboards. There are many things you can do in this location like going to Toys R Us, Lazer Park, MTV's Total Request Live (TRL), Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum, or the Hard Rock Cafe.

There are some other nearby attractions such as Children's Museum of Manhattan, the doll store American Girl Place and the Intrepid Sea-Air-Space Museum. This destination lands in our Top 4 on the list for its wide varieties of entertainment.

The Top 5 on our list is the Empire State Building, which is one of the New York City icons. The classic 102-story structure is definitely one of the many reasons why people visit New York. Heading up to the 86th floor outside observatory will allow you to have a good view of up to 80 miles.

Just imagine the thrill of watching over the skylines of New York, and that is certainly one memorable asset of the state of New York. What do you think about our Top 5 reasons to visit New York? Watch the video below for New York's 10 places you must visit and subscribe for more updates!
