Over 60 million people every year will visit one city in the US; it is the home to some of the most iconic buildings and monuments in the history of this country. That place is, of course, New York City. If you are interested in being one of those people that visits NYC this year, then here is a look at some of the things you might want to do with your time in the city that never sleeps.
One of the most popular things to do in New York City is to take a trip to the theatre, but this isn’t just any show. This is a show on Broadway, the canyon of heroes. For around a century, theatre has been the centerpiece to Times Square, the place where the great and the good come to see some of the finest plays, musical, and actors from around the world perform. There are always last minute Broadway tickets available, so don’t worry if you arrive without having pre-booked your experience. But do be aware, the more popular shows like Book of Mormon may very well sell out in advance of your trip, so planning ahead isn’t the worst idea.
For some just walking around this part of the city is enough, but if you can get inside some of the historic theatres you will be experiencing something special.
Walking around New York City, it is hard to avoid coming across major attractions. You are never too far away from an impressive structure or monument to past times. For those of you looking for a natural escape, there is Central Park, a green space to help you escape the hustle and bustle of this thriving city. But it is architecture people come to New York to see, and you will not be disappointed.
The most iconic of the buildings in New York is without doubt the Empire State Building. As if it wasn’t unique enough with its over 80 meter spire, the film King Kong cemented its legacy as a piece of American history. Taking the time to ascend to the viewing deck will give you a view of New York that will let you see all the way out to New Jersey and is good for spotting some of the other special buildings in the local area. A little trick for you, a trip to the top of the Rockefeller Center will allow you to view New York with the Empire State Building as its centerpiece.
The final thing to discuss when we talk about a visit to New York is how this wonderful city responded to the greatest attack on American soil. The memorial that now stands where the World Trade Center buildings once stood is nothing short of stunning. You will be in awe at how this city is able to have such a peaceful site that is built for reflection and respect; remembering those awful events of 2001 but also how the country came together and especially New York City.
