Welcome to New York

Crossing the Brooklyn Bridge as the sun sets, eating a slice of pizza in the East Village, or taking in the green in Central Park—these quintessential activities are for New Yorkers just as much they are for you. In a city where roaming down Broadway to catch a play and going to the cultural trove of the MoMa are the norm, these moments remind you why New York, the meeting point of culture, art, and history, is unquestionably one of the best cities in the world.

The Top Attractions in New York

1. Times Square

The most famous square in New York attracts visitors to the heart of Manhattan with countless shops and numerous landmarks. Colourful neon signs and thousands of lights illuminate the night sky above Times Square. Nearby, Broadway’s finest plays all beckon you into the heart of the city’s thespian culture, while Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum shows a more playful side of Manhattan.

2. Rockefeller Centre

The largest Christmas tree in the USA shines in December at the Rockefeller Centre, one of the city’s most famous buildings. Built in the 1940s, the building has stood the test of time, and continues to be one of the Big Apple’s most venerated architectural masterpieces. Don’t forget to grab your skates and hit the ice rink here—or grab your binoculars and ascend the 70 stories to get the best view of the city.

3. Brooklyn Bridge

Thousands of people cross the Brooklyn Bridge daily—New Yorkers and travellers alike. No matter which way you slice it (or your pizza), the Brooklyn Bridge is one of those landmarks that connects you to the heart of what New York is all about. Walk across at sunset to ensure the most romantic view of the city that never sleeps.

4. One World Trade Centre

The highest building in New York, 1,774 feet high, towers high into the New York skyline. Its location is on Ground Zero, next to the former location of the World Trade Centre. The 9/11 Memorial, which commemorates the victims of the attacks of 1993 and 2001, resonates strongly with anyone visiting this evocative site.

5. Statue of Liberty

The green (once gold) lady of New York has greeted immigrants for decades, an icon of the city of diversity. A gift from the French government for the 100th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence, the Statue is New York’s unmissable tourist destination. Make sure you grab the Staten Island Ferry to enjoy beautiful views of the city after you climb up to the crown.

6. Central Park

Initially opened in 1857, Central Park defines the notion of an urban park. More than a half million shrubs, trees, and vines were planted during the building of the park. Combined with street artists, musicians, and sunbathers, Central today is a paradise for anybody looking for a break from the electric energy of the Big Apple.
