The Statue of Liberty is one of the most iconic sights in the world, and it's a must-see when visiting New York City. The best way to experience it is to take a ferry ride from Manhattan to Liberty Island, where you can get up close and personal with the statue. Central Park is another must-see in New York City. It's a great place to enjoy nature, and there are plenty of attractions within its limits, most of which are free.
Some of the most popular places to visit include Belvedere Castle, Strawberry Fields, the Central Park Zoo, and the lake. If you're exploring the park on your own, pick up a map at one of the visitor centers and trace your route. Times Square is one of the most famous intersections in the world. This street junction, where Broadway meets Seventh Avenue, attracts 50 million people a year, making it one of the most popular tourist attractions in the world. A portion of the bridge is for pedestrians only, making it one of the most picturesque places to walk in New York City.
Walking, cycling or taking a carriage ride along the crisscrossing paths of Central Park is a must on anyone's New York City itinerary. New York City is also home to the headquarters of the United Nations and two of the largest stock exchanges in the world (the New York Stock Exchange and NASDAQ), making it a leading city in international diplomacy and finance. As well as this, it's home to some incredible art experiences. One such experience is at The Shed, where colorful images dance on the floor, walls and ceiling, blending seamlessly with audio effects to create one of the most technologically advanced artistic experiences in New York City. New York City has a rich history and culture that can be explored through walking tours. On these tours you can learn about the city's history and culture from knowledgeable guides.
You can also learn about how immigrants arrived in New York City through Ellis Island and then settled in New York or other parts of the United States. One of my favorite things to do in New York City is take a harbor cruise. On this cruise you can enjoy views of the Statue of Liberty, One World Trade Center and Brooklyn Bridge while having lunch or dinner. Central Park is another great place to explore in New York City. This huge park in the center of the city is half a mile wide and 2.5 miles long, making it one of the things that make New York such a beautiful and livable city. For all runners, cyclists and triathletes, New York City is home to some incredible races.
The best area extends from roughly the south end of Central Park to the New York Public Library, or more specifically between 60th and 40th Streets. On this 2.5-hour walking tour you can stroll through Brooklyn's Dumbo neighborhood, cross Brooklyn Bridge and learn about this part of New York City's history. You can learn where Jimi Hendrix and Edgar Allen Poe were, where one of Bob Dylan's album covers was photographed and how gay rights have risen in New York City. No trip to New York City would be complete without exploring its sights and enjoying its shows, restaurants and museums. As an avid traveler I visit New York regularly to explore its sights and enjoy its culture.
