New York State is historic. It’s untamed. It’s iconic. But more importantly, it’s anything you want it to be. With awesome architecture and parks, New York is № 1 of America’s most beautiful cities .
So top five places to see and to go:
- Central park
Central Park is the most visited urban park in the United States with above 40 million visitors each year and one of the most filmed locations in the world. It is created by landscape designer Frederick Law Olmsted and architect Calvert Vaux. It has gone through major developments and restoration over time to carry on its initial purpose as an open-air oasis for a metropolitan city. No matter the season or reason for your visit, this national historic landmark is a setting for enjoying many pursuits.
- Empire State Building
Whether you’re in town for a week or a day, no visit to NYC is complete without experiencing the top of the Empire State Building. It is more than a spectacular view. It’s an immersive experience inside a world famous landmark. On a typical New York night, you can see the Empire State.Building lit up in color to honor a special occasion — green for Earth Day, for example, or red and blue for a Chicago Cubs World Series victory.
- The Statue of Liberty
People who come to New York by sea are greeted by the Statue of Liberty. It has become a symbol of the city (if not of the whole country) and an expression of freedom to people all over the world. The Statue of Liberty was France’s gift to America. It was designed by the French sculptor Bartholdi and presented to the USA in 1886. 365 steps lead from the entrance to the observation area in the seven-pointed crown (visitors are not allowed to climb to the torch). The views are breathtaking.
Broadway is the oldest north-south street in New York City, existing as a Native American path since before the city was first settled and called New Amsterdam. Even though there are many famous sites along the several miles of Broadway, one small stretch comes to mind when most people hear the word “Broadway.” It’s the part of Broadway between 42nd and 53rd streets — including Times Square — that is considered the home of the American theater industry. Broadway shows are one of the most popular tourist attractions in New York City.
- Times square
No trip to NYC is complete without a visit to Times Square. No matter the time of day, it is filled with activity and, with the largest video billboards you have ever seen. Great place to just hang out and walk around. Soak in the busy atmosphere, lots of public performers around the area to keep yourself entertained. You can just take a seat above the ticketing counters and people-watch for a long time! It is really bright and colorful place
