Home » Travel Activities » Top 7 Places To Visit in New York

 

The ‘city that never sleeps’ and the ‘big apple’ are two of the many names the New York City has been christened with but being an international center for politics, finance, music, communications, culture, and fashion, it is very easy to understand where the nicknames come from. The New York City boasts of numerous, top notch museums, sights, and venues, all which make the city a truly cosmopolitan and all accommodate city in the world. Thanks to an affluent history and culture, there is a lot to see for any holidaymaker wishing to make the New York City their holiday destination of choice.

1. Statue of Liberty

First comes the statue of liberty. Be advised that due to security concerns, you will be expected to reserve a visiting time well in advance before you land in the City. Either way, you can still enjoy a picturesque view of the Statue of Liberty by taking the ferry that goes into the Ellis Island. For only $10, the ferry always departs from the Battery Park after every 25 minutes and stops at the Liberty and Ellis Island, providing people with an outstanding view of the Statue of Liberty.

2. Central Park

The Central Park is a villainous destination in New York City and equally has some History behind it. Experience the picturesque greenery, attractive lakes, sprawling lawns, and a great Zoo. This destination is particularly popular among concert goers and outdoor enthusiasts. Ensure you visit the Metropolitan Museum of Art as well as the Central Park Zoo.

3. Times Square

This is another impressive must visit attraction that represents the rich American History. Note however that the Times Square has been highly commercialized today and will always be thronging with tourists and visitors of all sorts. Located in close proximity to Broadway and the Port Authority Bus Terminal, the Times Square has become quite seedy today and is now being referred to as the ‘old Times Square’. However, to have a feel of the Times Square without people milling around, you can always visit the ‘new’ Times Square, found a few blocks away from the ‘old one’. In the ‘new Times Square’ expect to find a family friendly, but equally commercialized place full of theaters, themed restaurants, and hotels.

4. Cathedral of St. John The Divine

This is the world’s largest Gothic Cathedral and apparently it has been a work in progress for the better part of a century. Expect to sample the most beautiful stained glass windows and Gothic Architecture never seen before even in the European churches the cathedral emulates.

5. Chrysler Building

This is an embodiment of Art Deco architecture and happens to be the most popular and beautiful building in the world. Ensure you visit the lobby for an outstanding panoramic view of the city, but unless you are on an official business trip, don’t expect to be allowed to go up the top.

6. Carnegie Hall

You love history? You will love it even more when you visit the Carnegie Hall, a hall that boasts of having housed the who is who in this century’s top performers and musicians. Inside the hall you get to sample pictures of part performers as well as all the famous people who have been there.

7. Empire State Building

The Empire State Building, which was once the tallest building in the US, is an outstanding landmark in New York City standing beautifully on the famous fifth avenue. The building exemplifies the urban, sleek, and cultured atmosphere in New York.
