Must-see Landmarks in New York City

Best Of New York. Sep 9th 22

You'll never get over not seeing if you make the long trip to New York City. This historic yet contemporary city is filled with must-see landmarks, so we could fill that blank with any number of them.

Lady Liberty in New York City

Lady Liberty, towering erect over New York Harbor, is a sight to behold. From Battery Park or Liberty State Park in New Jersey, Statue Cruises ferries take you to the island, where you may enter the monument.

The 75-minute Liberty Cruise on Circle Line provides the finest views of the statue from the sea. If you're keen on slipping beneath Lady Liberty's skirts, make a reservation in advance because only a certain number of individuals are permitted inside the Statue of Liberty daily.

Ellis Island Immigration Museum

One of the most well-known landmarks in the nation is the Ellis Island Immigration Museum , which is situated next to Liberty Island in New York Harbor.

Ellis Island, formerly the busiest immigration screening facility in the country, is today a memorial to America's history of immigration and a useful tool for anyone doing their family history research. Additionally, Statue Cruises offers a ferry service to Ellis Island.

The Empire State Building

Without the stunning buildings that make up the metropolis of New York, the skyline would be nothing.

The Empire State Building , the largest structure in New York City and one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World, is a stunning sight at night when lit up (in different colors to commemorate various occasions).

For breathtaking city views, take the elevator to the 86th-floor observation deck. Spend a bit more to skip the lines, which are likewise of the highest caliber.

Chrysler Building

The Chrysler Building, 42nd Street and Lexington, and Rockefeller Center, a vast complex in the center of Midtown Manhattan that houses some of the finest specimens of Modern American art, are two other Art Deco-era wonders that you shouldn't miss.

There are various ways to get a close-up view of Rockefeller Center, but you'll have to settle for the breathtaking view outside the Chrysler Building since it isn't accessible to the general public.

Schedule a visit with one of their experts to learn more about the frescoes and friezes adorn the historic structures.

Don't Miss Out On These Other Beautiful Landmarks!

Alternatively, head straight to the Top of the Rock for a bird's-eye perspective of Central Park and Midtown Manhattan.

A variety of additional attractions are nearby Rockefeller Center that you shouldn't miss.

St. Patrick's Cathedral, which is breathtaking, might convert you to the beauty of neo-Gothic architecture, while Radio City Music Hall, home to the famed Rockettes, is another outstanding example of Art Deco architecture in the city.

To discover the tricks of the stage that brings the Christmas Spectacular to life each holiday season, sign up for the Stage Door Tour.

The Brooklyn Bridge is, without a doubt, the most recognizable of the bridges that link the island of Manhattan to the other boroughs (and New Jersey).

You can drive there, cycle there (Bike and Roll offer rentals in neighboring Brooklyn Bridge Park), or walk there (beginning up near City Hall in Lower Manhattan).

You cross the Brooklyn Bridge on the Brooklyn TV & Movie Sites Tour and the 72-hour, All-loops Tour offered by Gray Line.

If reading this has made your feet sore, keep in mind that you can see all of these attractions from the top of a double-decker tour bus operated by Citysights, NY.

If you're looking to see lower Manhattan, the Gray Line provides a tour that covers Wall Street, the New York Stock Exchange, and the World Trade Center site. If upper Manhattan is more your style, they also have a Loop covering well-known attractions such as Central Park & Lincoln Center.

Make sure you have enough space on your memory card if you plan to view these famous sights from the ground, the water, or the air because you won't want to forget!
