New York is one of the world’s major cities and is a financial and cultural powerhouse on the international stage. There are so many attractions in New York and it can be difficult to decide what to do when time is limited. Travelup Reviews has produced the following list of five places to visit to ensure that travellers have the most fulfilling holiday possible:
1. The New York City Skyline From The Empire State Buliding
Countless movies have immortalised the inimitable skyline of New York, and its stunning vistas of skyscrapers and twinkling lights are familiar to people from across the globe. Nothing can prepare the tourist for the spellbinding experience of witnessing the New York skyline first-hand, however, and one of the best places to view the shimmering city scape is from the observation deck of the Empire State Building’s 86th storey.
Alternatively, the Top of the Rock deck at the very top of 30 Rockefeller Plaza is equally exhilarating, with wonderful 360 degree views of the whole of Manhattan.
2. Times Square
No visit to New York would be complete without a walk past the billboards and bright lights of Times Square. Tourists can enjoy a Broadway show, shop in one of Times Square’s flagship department stores, or simply take a moment to marvel at the effervescent spirit of New York.
3. Central Park
With over 840 acres of lakes, meadows and woods, Central Park is the quintessential
urban park. This Manhattan oasis includes a zoo, a carousel, a theatre and skating rink, and is a natural paradise in the heart of New York.
Museum Mile, which stretches from East 82nd East 105th Streets, is a world class centre of culture, with the Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Guggenheim Museum and the Museum of the City of New York amongst the plethora of art galleries and museums on offer.
5. Brooklyn Bridge
A triumph of engineering and construction, Brooklyn Bridge is an emblem of New York’s enterprising energy. From wherever the Brooklyn Bridge is viewed, it is a masterpiece of design and execution.
