New York is packed with fun things to do. From visiting Empire state building to rowing boats in Central Park to a casual stroll around Times Square at night, this city has a lot to offer. It keeps on reinventing itself to ensure you have a distinctly unique experience every time you visit. Below are the city’s gems, one can’t afford to miss on a trip to New York City:
Grand Central Terminal:
One of the most beautiful train stations ever built as well as an important historic landmark of the city. Most of the train journeys begin from Grand Central Terminal or Penn Station receiving over 21 million commuters/visitors annually. Call in for a quick look or board the train to experience the journey- for whatever reasons, it’s worth a visit.
Completed in 1883, Brooklyn Bridge is one of the oldest suspension bridges in the United States connecting Manhattan and Brooklyn. A walk through the bridge will leave you enchanted, with its beauty, sparkling water, sunsets, sailboats and much more.
The Empire State Building:
One of the most iconic buildings of the New York City, it’s known for its 103 years presence and as the world’s tallest building built since 40 years. Though, you might have seen it a lot of times in the movies, there’s absolutely nothing like observing it in reality to feel its vibrancy, aura and royalty.
Officially declared as the National landmark, it offers a 360-degree city view and consists of 19 commercial buildings. It’s home to various NY events, and is said to be one of the most popular attractions in New York City.
The High Line:
A relatively new attraction in New York City, The High line is a 2km long green space, formerly a railway station converted into a park. The former west sideline tracks from Gansevoort Street to the Meatpacking District and Chelsea, gives an amazing view of Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty and the Chrysler Building.
One of the most popular attractions of New York City, Times Square boasts of brash and busy lives. If you’re going here for a visit, I recommend that you visit at night-time when it’s all lit- up and have a cheery vibe, with bands playing, people dancing and what not.
Statue of Liberty:
The Statue of Liberty is a neoclassic sculpture gifted by France to the United States on October 28th, 1886. If you wish a closer look at the statue, you’ll need to buy tickets to Liberty Island. However, one can get its glimpse from the distance without paying a buck from Staten Island Ferry.
World Trade Centre Memorial:
Popularly known as 9/11 memorial, this museum pays tribute to the victims who lost their lives in a tragic happening on September 11, 2009. From the minute you’ll set foot inside the museum, you’ll begin to feel the importance and gravity of the events unfolded here. It’s unlike any other museum in the world and is a must visit for an educational and historical experience.
