Top 5 Things To See In New York City

With an impressively large number of cool activities to do around the city and tons of emblematic buildings to visit, you have zero chances of ever feeling bored here. Here are five of the most popular must-see NY destinations that you might want to include on your itinerary next time you want to go out and about in the city.

#1: Visit The Statue of Liberty

If you are ready to revisit an architectural wonder in New York City or visit it for the first time, you should plan a boat ride to Liberty Island. You will not only get to snap some cool photos for your Instagram feed, but also admire the true majesty of the Statue once the boat will slow down when passing it by. The Statue of Liberty audio tour will also reveal a few intriguing facts about the statue representing the Enlightening the World, which was a gift of friendship that the French decided to present to the American people. It is regarded as the universal symbol of democracy as well as freedom. The statue has also become a National Monument in 1924 and it has been restored for its hundredth celebration more than three decades ago, on the 4th of July, in 1986.

#2: Central Park

Go by foot, bike, rent a carriage, rent a pair of slides or put your roller-skates on and get ready to take in the serenity of this green and lush park located at the heart of the city. Central Park is 2.5 miles long and 0.5 miles in width, and it expands between the Upper West and the Upper East Side in Manhattan. Central park is the 5th largest park in NY by area, but it is the most popular and visited of them with around 38 million visitors who choose to come here every year. It is also the most commonly filmed location on the planet and with so much amazing ground to cover (more than 840 acres), you could dedicate an entire day to a visit here.

#3: Climb On Top Of The Rock Observation Deck

If you haven’t visited the Rockefeller Center yet, make sure you plan a trip to the top of the amazing skyscraper there. You will be admiring the breathtaking view over the entire Manhattan once you will reach the Rock Observation Deck. Don’t forget that coming here from October to April means also enjoying the outdoor skating rink located at the very base of Rock Observation Deck.

#4: Explore The Empire State Building

One of the most impressive landmark buildings in NYC and also another Art Deco skyscraper wonder, the Empire State Building is 102 stories high and it is found in Midtown Manhattan. The roof of the building measures 1,250 feet and you can plan a visit at one of the two observatories available at the top of the building. Grab your camera and get ready to oversee Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Massachusetts on a radius of around 80 miles, if the weather conditions allow it.

To reach the 86th floor and get to the highest open-air observation deck in the city, you will have the chance to hop on a high-speed elevator and enjoy an unforgettable ride.

#5: Check Out Brooklyn Bridge

The Brooklyn Bridge was officially opened in 1883 and it is famous for offering access between Manhattan and Brooklyn to bike riders, pedestrians, as well as motorists and even trains. Brooklyn Bridge should definitely be a part of any list of must-see places in New York as it is an irrefutable NYC symbol, as well as a design jewel which displays a spectacular view of the New York skyline.

Get ready for an iconic walk of half an hour across the bridge and prepare your camera as the views are stelar and the architecture of the bridge is truly unique and worth your attention.

“Dear Haim,
It has been so very busy here, thank God, that I never had the chance to formally thank you for the absolutely beautiful job you and your team did with our rugs and sofa. I know when a job is superior and such is the case, much to my surprise, upon entering the apartment after you completed the work.

Thank you again – you will ever be our service provider etc…“

Sunlight Customer, Oriental Rug Cleaning

A few weeks ago, I had Haim Shemesh clean my sofa & I was very pleased. He was professional, the price was reasonable & my sofa looks brand new again!

Sunlight Customer, Oriental Rug Cleaning

I had Haim Shemesh from Sunlight clean all my area rugs. He did a fabulous job! They are all handmade Orientals and he took them to a place that soaks them in a tub and hand washes them the way it’s supposed to be done. They look so much better and brighter Haim came to my apt to give me an estimate, took the rugs, then delivered them back to me a week later. He even helped me set them back up, including moving furniture around to do so. Prices were very reasonable. I highly recommend doing business with him!
