New York is no doubt one of the most unbelievably creative and advanced cities in the world. There are so many things to do that it would take you decades to get it all done. If you’re visiting NYC for the first time, here are the picks of the best places to visit.
The Guggenheim building is as gorgeous as the art it holds within. Admiring the architecture is even more popular than viewing the art works inside – the proof? It’s THE most photographed attraction on earth.
The Statue of Liberty
The Statue of Liberty is undeniably the focal icon of New York. To get up close to the statue, you can catch the ferry to Ellis Island, or catch the Staten Island Ferry for free to see her from a distance.
The Empire State Building – From the Top of The Rock
The Top of the Rock is the best place to see the Empire State Building. It is straight in front of its south facing observing platform. The Top of the Rock is situated on the top floor of the Rockefeller centre and boasts arguably the most outstanding views of the city.
The Freedom Tower
The Freedom Tower was opened in 2014, and replaces the hole in the skyline that remained after the attacks on 9/11 that brought the twin towers down.
Central Park is a must see on your travels and is right in the middle of the city. In winter, you can ice skate at Trump Rink, the Central Park Zoo is also in the park, or you can just walk, run, or hire a row boat to take it all in.
Times Square is named after the New York Times who have been located there since 1904. If you like bright lights then here is where your dreams come true. It’s an astounding experience and worth a trip during your stay.
