New York … New York … The place to be! Although most of New York’s iconic attractions are very familiar to visitors from seeing them in movies or on television, nothing compares to experiencing them first hand.
Take the Staten Island Ferry and sail past the Statue of Liberty. Visit Ellis Island and discover the history of the immigrants who flocked to the new world. Visits to The Met and the Guggenheim museums are also highly recommended for culture vultures. Ride to the Observatory at the top of the One World Centre in the financial district for a spectacular view over the city’s skyline. New York has so much to offer, there is always something to see or do.
For most people a first visit to NYC is centred on the island of Manhattan. Stroll through the cobbled streets of the West Village, where the NYC street grid becomes muddled and 4th street actually crosses 4th street! Soak up the atmosphere and bohemian culture; this is where art, music and funky restaurants thrive, or relax in leafy Central Park. There is so much to choose from, New York never disappoints!
New York-Go down town to Battery Park have a drink at Battery Gardens, the view is amazing. I felt like a tourist looking at the statue of liberty, Ellis and Govenors Island. Watching all the boats go by was great fun.
New York-Looking for your Broadway tickets? The South St. Seaport location is usually a lot less busy than the Times Square one, and only there can you purchase tickets the day before for matinees. That said, if there's a particular Broadway show you've set your heart on, buy tickets in advance of travel. Please ask us for more details.
