Looking at all the things to do in New York and not sure which to do first? Wonder no more – you know the most important places to go are the ones where you’ll get the best selfies!….

1. The Empire State Building (or Top of the Rock)

Going to the top of the Empire State Building? Make sure you catch the ultimate city view – including your lovely self. Scared of heights? Better get practicing your chin angles….

2. At the Yankee Stadium

3. In front of the Statue of Liberty

Selfie experts alert! Go the extra mile by balancing it on your hand, holding it between your fingers, or other such japes.

4. At the Friends Apartment

They may not be there for you (geddit??) to take a photo with, but this is still a top-rated destination for selfies.
